AYSO Core Program

AYSO's core program is the foundation for all the fun, excitement and learning that happens on the fields. AYSO is best known for our core program – it’s where the large majority of kids fall in love with soccer and make memories that will last a lifetime.

There are six core values – or what we call AYSO’s Six Philosophies – that are the foundation of our core program, and all others: Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship, and Player Development. These are the essence of AYSO and it all starts with Everyone Plays.

Here in AYSO, Everyone Plays means that no kid spends their soccer experience sitting on the bench. Every kid plays at least half of every game. Learn more about AYSO’s Six Philosophies.

Also, teams are put together in a way that makes playing soccer about the experience, not wins or losses. It’s not about blowing out another team with an unbelievable score; it’s about sportsmanship and learning to be the best possible team mate and opponent. Developing players is what we’re about, because soccer skills and life skills go hand in hand. AYSO’s main purpose is to get kids on the field, provide them with good coaches, and teach them to play soccer.

AYSO 459 Core - Age-Divisions

The 6U and 18U divisions are co-ed. All other age divisions (8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U) are divided into two groups (boys and girls). Team sizes may vary when teams are formed depending on player headcount and availability of coaches. Starting in 2017, players are grouped into divisions according to their birth year. Divisions have different numbers of players on a team and different numbers of players on the field during a game.

See the Age Determination Chart for more details. The registration process will automatically select the appropriate age division based on the birth year of your child. 

FALL 2020 & SPRING 2021 REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Fall & Spring Registration
Our season started on September 8 with age-specific skills training. We are reopening registration to fill remaining spots on teams that have been formed. 

If the age division is showing as "WAIT LIST ONLY", this is because we are in need of volunteer coaches and enough players to form a team. If you are interested in volunteering to coach, please contact our Coach Administrators. There is no fee or obligation when being wait listed. Players are activated on a first-come first-serve basis.

*IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 GUIDELINES*
Executive Order 2020-180 issued by Governor Whitmer’s office on September 9, 2020 mandates the player to wear facial coverings during practices, trainings, and competing. Effective immediately, all players will be required to correctly wear a facial covering during trainings, practices, and competing. During trainings, coaches will be asked to take breaks more frequently. All families are required to wear face coverings to and from the fields. Spectators are required to observe all physical distancing requirements (at least 6 feet apart), and always remain 8 feet away from the personal prep stations and field. We are reviewing match play guidelines and protocols, and updates will be communicated to registered families the week of September 14.

We are also looking for volunteer Referees and Team Parents. Please contact our Referee Administrators or Team Parent Coordinator for more details. 

Registration closes September 20, 2020 for the Core Program 6U-18U. We may extend or re-open registration if we have open slots on teams.

Fill In The Spot (FITS) Spring Registration
Prior to the Spring season, we find a few players in the age divisions have to drop due to various reasons, and we open registration to Fill In The Spots (FITS) that become vacant. FITS registration opens in February/March for the Core Program 6U-18U. We may extend or re-open FITS registration if we have open slots on teams.

If the age division is showing as "WAIT LIST ONLY", then we are still in the process of verifying vacant spots in the age division. There is no fee or obligation when being wait listed. 

There is no guarantee a spot will open up. Spots will be filled on a first come first serve basis.
