(350 words max) The Salvation Army KROC Center offers the only American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) soccer program within the city of Grand Rapids. The KROC Center has partnered with AYSO to offer a youth U6 (under 6) soccer league. This eight-week league operates under AYSO’s 6 distinctive philosophies: everyone plays, open registration (no tryouts or cuts), balanced teams, positive coaching, good sportsmanship, and player development.

AYSO’S History: “The American Youth Soccer Organization is the oldest national youth soccer program in the United States. AYSO was established with only nine teams by a handful of soccer enthusiasts in 1964 out of a garage in Torrance, Calif. They wanted to make sure American kids were introduced to the beautiful game. Five decades later, AYSO has thriving programs in nearly 900 communities all over the country, over six million AYSO alumni and a logo that’s recognized nationwide. Great soccer starts here!” –from www.ayso.org

What Makes AYSO Different?: “AYSO is a soccer program for the entire family. AYSO’s goal is for every girl and boy stepping on a soccer field to learn soccer and have a fun, fair and safe experience. But it’s also to ensure that the whole family can be involved creating memories that last a lifetime. AYSO’s kid-first approach makes us a leader in player development. Everybody likes to win, but developing successful players and people is what’s fundamental…In AYSO, every player on every team plays at least 50 percent of every game.” –from www.ayso.org

AYSO’S Vision: “To provide world class youth soccer programs that enrich children’s lives.” –from www.ayso.org

League Information: Each session will include a 35-minute practice followed by a 25-minute game. Practice and games will take place on Thursday evenings at 6pm. A full schedule will be given out after registration.
