Where Talent Thrives



Identification 64 plays homage to the year American Youth Soccer Organization was founded and based on the principles of placing players on the highest level teams possible. ID64 is AYSO United’s player identification program designed to provide a platform for AYSO’s most talented players to showcase their abilities at the highest level possible. ID64 was piloted in Southern California in 2018 with plans to expand in 2019-2020.

Why ID64?

ID64 is an important component of our AYSO player pathway, providing the AYSO player the opportunity to play at all levels whilst enjoying the game under our historic six philosophies. ID64 is not only part of our rich history, but also part of our exciting future.

Who is ID64 for?

ID64 is available for Male and Female players in our foundation age brackets U10-U13 in the Southern California market. We are in the process of looking at the program and how this level of play can be expended to all our locations nationally.
