Dogs and other pets are not allowed at the fields anytime during soccer practices or games. This is an AYSO National rule. This policy is in place to ensure a safe environment for players, coaches, referees, and spectators. Your understanding and cooperation in keeping pets away from the soccer fields is greatly appreciated.
If a dog or other pet is brought to a practice or game, you will be asked to remove it from the field immediately. Also, it was brought up that people are smoking during soccer games:
All practice and games activities are drug and smoke free by National and Regional AYSO Policies. During practice and on game days smoking is prohibited on or around the soccer fields.
AYSO is child-first and child focused. We are a soccer organization with happy, healthy kids as our passion.
Every decision, every rule and every program has "what's good for kids" as its basis. Every girl and boy stepping on a soccer field for the first time can have fun. AYSO's child-first approach also makes it one of the finest player development programs. Everybody likes to win, but developing successful players and people is what's fundamental in AYSO.
AYSO's philosophies are living tenets that separate it from other sports organizations. They are Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development
