AYSO United is AYSO’s official club program, with a formal try-out process. AYSO United allows players to enjoy more advanced play, participate in intense competition and receive cutting-edge training while still enjoying the benefits of AYSO and its Six Philosophies.
What makes AYSO United unique compared to other clubs is the guaranteed playing time. We ensure every AYSO United player will get to play at least 50 percent of each match. This is promised at clubs all over the country, but rarely is accounted for. AYSO has delivered on this commitment since 1964. All players need to play to learn, develop and get better!
AYSO United models its program under U.S. Soccer’s Zone 1 initiatives that falls directly under AYSO’s “Development over Winning” approach. AYSO is renowned for its commitment to child development and putting the player before game results. AYSO United will continue this commitment as it values the growth of the individual player. AYSO United’s focus is on skill acquisition for players and the team for technical and tactical capabilities.
