Future Offerings

Someday we hope to offer our kids the opportunity to expand and grow past our Core Program. Potential offerings would be to add AYSO Extra, AYSO Alliance, or AYSO United to our program.

AYSO Extra
What is AYSO Extra?
For those who want to play harder and still be a part of AYSO, EXTRA(TM) is perfect! This program gives AYSO athletes a more progressive soccer experience. With the right balance of competition and inclusion, you can feel secure knowing your child is part of a trusted organization and will be given fair playing time.

AYSO Alliance
What is AYSO Alliance?
The purpose of the AYSO ALLIANCE program is to support the AYSO player development pathway to the highest levels of play. It is an integral part of the AYSO Club program potential progression to AYSO United.

AYSO United

What is AYSO United?

AYSO United is proud to be the Official Club Program of American Youth Soccer Organization. Our United program is designed to complete the AYSO Player Development Pathway, allowing players to complete their youth soccer journey under AYSO’s Six Philosophies. Building upon the foundation of the tremendous history and tradition, our AYSO United players will experience a positive, developmentally-appropriate environment, where they will not only develop in practice but during the game, where they are guaranteed 50% play.

AYSO Age Divisions

AYSO uses an age based registration* system. Here are some frequently asked questions regarding divisions and age based registration. 
*information below is based on our 2022/2023 registration season.

How do you determine age?

AYSO uses "birth year" registration. Under birth year registration a players division is determined solely on that players date of birth. For example all players born in 2012 will be in the same age group, regardless of whether they were barn in January, 2012 or December, 2012, and also regardless of what grade they are in school. This birth year registration complies with the guidelines of U.S. Soccer, the governing body of soccer in the United States.

How does this affect my child and what division will he/she be in?

Because we have a Fall and Spring season (some regions only have one season) and those seasons run from July 2022 (formation of teams) to June 2023 (last games of Spring season), determining which division your child will be in can be tricky. When figuring out which division your player will be in we look at their age on the last day of the calendar year (12/31/XX). As an example, a player who turns 6 before 12/31/2022 would be in our 8U division. Whereas a player who turns 6 on 1/1/2023 would be in our 6U division. Below is a general breakdown of the Birth Year Divisions to help answer the above question.

What if my child's birth year now places him/her with children who are mostly in a higher grade, can we move him/her down?

No, as a rule, AYSO does not allow move-downs to a division below a player's age group.

If you have additional questions, please let us know.
