AYSO soccer may or may not have been a childhood pastime for you. If it was, welcome back, we’ve missed you. If it wasn’t, then welcome to the party—you’ll now understand why AYSO is the leader in youth soccer programs across the United States.
Our youth programs, are based on Six Philosophies and they are meant to enrich our players’ lives. We intend to spread the same positive approach to our AYSO Adult Soccer program because we believe that it’s not just children’s lives that AYSO can help to enrich, but adults as well.
The beauty of AYSO Adult Soccer is that there is no “right” or “wrong” way to play. The program was designed to be flexible and accommodate the needs of the community. Players can form teams and play soccer in a variety of ways. They can play with the traditional set up of 11v11 or host a small-sided game with 3v3 or 7v7. If you have access to a gym, futsal is a great option. Or, if your team isn’t particularly soccer-inclined, forming an AYSO Adult Soccer “bootcamp” to get interested fitness-enthusiasts motivated and out exercising is also another option. The point is that we want people, non-AYSO affiliated and the like, to feel like we have a place for them to exercise and have fun, too.
AYSO Adult Soccer is a great alternative to happy hour specials after work, a way to bond with your colleagues outside of the office and a way to reconnect with friends you don’t get to see on a day-to-day basis.
