The American Youth Soccer Organization revolutionized youth sports with its progressive “Everyone Plays®” and “Balanced Teams” philosophies. Each child that registers for an AYSO team is guaranteed to play at least half of every game. Today, with more than 50,000 teams and 650,000 players, AYSO continues to spread its inspiring vision to provide world-class youth programs that enrich children’s lives.
