Player Development Pathway

American Youth Soccer Organization – Player Development Pathway

American Youth soccer Organization (AYSO) is committed to providing a player pathway which places each player in the developmentally appropriate learning environment.

Our pathway begins with our AYSO Playground Soccer program designed to introduce families and children to the physical literacy requirements to play soccer. This program is for our entry level players in the 3-5 Year age range, who will then progress into our AYSO Core program. Our AYSO Core program is designed around fun and learning and ran by a tremendous volunteer base who allow our players to play in a low pressure environment (Find your local program)

The next step in our Pathway is “Extra” which is a tryout-based program designed for players looking for a more challenging learning and playing environment. In this program the players will play at a higher level in a developmentally appropriate AYSO playing circuit, coaches by the top AYSO Coaches with a focus on technical and tactical development.

The final phase in the youth system is the United (Club) club program where the top players are exposed to to the challenges and competition of club soccer. In this environment the players work with high level coaches and play in USYS (US Club) leagues and compete against other youth club organizations. The united program builds on the foundations of all our AYSO Programs ensuring that the players selected are in the appropriate environment to enhance their skill level and competence in the game of soccer.

The objective of the Player Pathway is to allow any player and family the opportunity to excel and reach their potential through their exposure to AYSO and the philosophies our organization has been build on.

Thank you for being part of the family.
