Hello AYSO fans! Our new season starts in a few short weeks!
You are invited to our Pre-Season "Coach Meet and Greet" and uniform distribution night on Thursday, August 21st at Union Middle School (80th S., 7th E.). Note the following meeting times are by age division*.
6pm - U6 and U8 boys and girls divisions
7pm - U10 - U19 boys and girls divisions
*Hopefully, coaches will have contacted you before Thursday and will let you know what time to attend. However, if your are not contacted by your coach before Thursday, you are still invited to come during the time slot for your age group. If you don't know what age division you are in, here is the simple formula:
U6 division is for any kid who will turn 6 or 5 AFTER July 31st, 2014.
U8 is for kids turning 8 or 7 AFTER July 31st, 2014 .
U10 is for kids turning 10 or 9 AFTER July 31st, 2014.
U12 is for kids turning 12 or 11 AFTER July 31st, 2014.
Any kids older than U12 are U14-U19, and will all meet at 7pm on Thursday.
FAQs: Q: When does the season start?
A: First games for *most teams* will be September 6th. We have a few older age groups that may start sooner because we are playing against Sandy City Rec teams (U14 and U19)
Q: When will my coach contact me?
A: Starting August 18th, coaches will have their rosters and begin to contact their teams for practice.
Q: Where and When are practices?
A: Coaches set practice days and times. Most will practice at Union Middle School since AYSO is contracted to be the only organization allowed to practice there.
Q: What is this "EXTRA" team I've heard rumors about?
A: GOOD QUESTION! ... Everyone who has registered for this season in the U10-U12 age divisions will get an email with more details about the EXTRA teams and try-out dates. Tryouts are on Wednesday, August 20th @ 6pm and Saturday, August 23rd at 10am. Check your emails for all the details.

WHY CHOOSE AYSO over Other Programs?
AYSO's Vision is to provide world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.
AYSO's Mission is to develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs which promote a
fun, family environment based on AYSO's Six Philosophies:
The mission is accomplished by providing these essential services:
Coaching and referee programs including quality delivery systems
Quality administrative and operating systems with a support network
Strong financial position
Special network for volunteers, supported by a national staff
Just a reminder for you that all the coaches, referees, and board members are volunteers. During games, remember that the coach is the coach, the referee refs the game, the parents and spectators cheer the players on in a positive manner. Volunteers are always needed, let a board member know how you would like to help.
PARENTS! - Please take a moment to read the Parent's Pledge before your child's first game.
