    Policies

    The AYSO philosophy is built on the belief that winning kids are built up, not torn down, and that all kids deserve the opportunity to play soccer. As part of the AYSO family, you will be expected to set an example and become part of a positive soccer environment based on mutual respect and positive encouragement. The kids have more fun when they gain self-confidence and a positive self-image.

    AYSO has always encouraged good sportsmanship in its program. Sportsmanship is such an important aspect of AYSO that its now part of the philosophy statement in the National AYSO bylaws. AYSO figures if players, volunteers and parents understand what is expected of them when it comes to good sportsmanship, that's probably how they will act. AYSO understands that good sportsmanship doesn't just happen. It needs to be taught, encouraged and demonstrated.
