Why choose AYSO?

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.

Winning isn't everything, and it shouldn't be. On any given set of games, only half or less will walk away with a win. So we focus on the more important aspect of the beautiful game... Player Development. In Tehachapi, every player plays at least 3/4 of a game (with certain exceptions). This means that your child won't be riding the bench and never getting touches on the ball.  It also means we encourage each player to explore the various positions of a soccer team. In AYSO we build fully rounded soccer players, not Left Defensive Backs or Right Midfielders.

AYSO has age appropriate small-sided games. A full size soccer team has 11 players on the field. But smaller-sided teams for younger children allow more touches on the ball and a more successful soccer learning environment.

 AYSO's Safe Haven Program for Parents

Volunteer Protection Act of 1997

This law grants immunity form certain types of prosecution for volunteers who meet its requirements. In order to receive full protection under the law, AYSO volunteers need three things.

  • They must be properly trained and certified.
  • They must be performing duties as laid out in a position description.
  • They must act within the scope of AYSO's Policies, Procedures, and Guidelines.

AYSO Certification

AYSO's goal is to provide certification training for all its volunteers. Certification offers the hope that every AYSO child will be treated with understanding, compassion, and respect.
