American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.


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.

Age DivisionTeam Type

10UBoys & Girls

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. 



AYSO Region 459 soccer registration includes Fall 2020 and Spring 2021. Prior to the spring season, we find a few players have to drop due to various reasons, and we open registration to Fill In The Spots (FITS) that become vacant.    

We are opening Spring FITS registration as “WAIT LIST ONLY” due to the uncertainty of COVID. There is no fee or obligation when being wait listed. Once we are clear on how our spring season will look, and we have verified open spots on teams, we will begin activating players from the wait list. There is no guarantee a spot will open up. Spots will be filled on a first come first serve basis.

If enough players, and coaches, sign up for an age division, we may create new teams. If you are interested in coaching, please contact our Coach Administrators.   

We are also looking for volunteer Referees. Please contact our Referee Administrators for more details. 

Registration closes March 12, 2021 for the Core Program 6U-18U. We may extend or re-open registration if we have open slots on teams.


During our fall season, players were required to wear facial coverings during practices, trainings, and competing. At this time, we do not know what requirements we may need to adhere to for our spring season. 

*This was the Fall 2020 Schedule. If we add new teams in the spring, the schedule may be re-evaluated.*
