AYSO United is an exciting alternative to youth soccer in Arizona. AYSO United is one of the fastest growing club programs in the nation, boasting 22 hub sites and more than 5000 players from Hawaii to New Jersey. Having the backing of a national organization like AYSO United, provides us with amazing partners such as New Balance, SOCCER.COM, The Coaching Manual and TopTekkers. We also have access to an amazing national coaching staff made up of USSF “A” and UEFA “A” level coaches who help develop the curriculum for all of our teams to follow.

In 2019. Arizona became one of the newest states to join AYSO United and our inaugural season was filled with some amazing highlights. On top of the list was having our very own Mike Hollar, named as National Coach of the Year. In addition to this outstanding achievement, we accomplished the following:

  • We hosted our very first ID64 program, identifying the top young players in our club, which resulted in 11 players from Arizona making it onto the AYSO United National team.
  • We hosted our first AYSO United AZ Cup, which showcased many of our teams from Southern Arizona to Flagstaff.
  • Our 2006 girls team, under the leadership of Coach Sylvester achieved the ranking of #1 in GotSoccer.
  • We were able to get 50% of our coaches to achieve their USSF D license.
  • One of our teams was selected to be featured in a mini documentary for a national promotional campaign through The Coaching Manual.
  • Plus much, much more.

Many organizations talk about “Player Development,” but we at AYSO United Arizona are also focused on “Character Development.” Everyone likes to win, but not at the expense of our players having fun and feeling like they contribute to the team. That is why we have the 50% playing rule, which means when you sign up your player with us, they are guaranteed to play at least 50% of the time.

Core Values:

• Our kids play with a smile on their face
• We remember that soccer is a game…and games are meant to be fun!
• We teach our kids to learn and play within the Laws of the Game
• We teach our kids to be a student of the game
• We teach our kids to watch, analyze and self-reflect on their own performance, as well as the performance of their teammates, in order to aid improvement
• We try to promote that our kids give 100% in practice, scrimmages and anything we do
• We promote that our kids practice individual soccer skills on their own time, not just at practice
• We promote our kids have a positive and “never quit” attitude
• We promote that our kids have an open mind and a “can do” attitude to deal with setbacks
• We encourage our kids attend, on time, all games and training sessions
• We encourage our kids immediately report any injury to their coach or parent
• We exemplify and demonstrate sportsmanship at all times
• We respect teammates and players within other age groups in the club
• We respect all officials and coaches and accept their decisions
• We give encouragement to fellow teammates
• We live the Core Values by demonstrating them at school, at home…not just on the pitch
• We recognize that learning never ends – and what our kids learn while being a part of our Club are lessons they will practice throughout their life
• We want our kids to be inquisitive, and always seek to improve both their skills and knowledge

Club Fees:

What makes us special is that we are providing high quality coaching, with a national coaching training staff, at an affordable rate for our families.
