The 2022-2023 Season
AYSO United understands this will be a difficult year to navigate with all the changes taking place within the Arizona soccer landscape. We also understand given the state of the economy, disposable income is shrinking for many families who are having to re-examine their soccer choices without worrying about sacrificing quality instruction in a healthy environment. AYSO United is, and always will be, an organization whose sole purpose is to provide the highest quality soccer experience, in an affordable family friendly environment.
AYSO United has much more to offer than just a chance to play league and tournament matches. We offer a Summer Camp, a sanctioned tournament at a world class venue, a Player of the Year program, a ID64 Scouting Program, a majority of USSF D licensed coaches and the support of a national and local technical training staff. AYSO United has produced state championship teams and have many former players who went on to play collegiate soccer. We have had a National Coach of the Year winner and a National Player of the Year winner and this summer will be sending four players to a national camp, hosted by our National Coaching staff, where they will train alongside some of the best AYSO United players in the country.
AYSO United has committed to stay and play within the Arizona Soccer Association. We will continue to compete within the USYS and participate in State League, State Cup and President’s Cup. If you are a family who is looking for your child to have a fun and friendly experience, who wants to stay and play in local events, who may want to participate in high school sports, please consider AYSO United AZ and reach out to anyone of our coaches and see about making the change.
Summer Camp 2022
AYSO United is pleased to announce that our Summer Camp is now full. We have had to establish a wait list after exceeding our goal of 100 participants. The camp will run from June 27th through June 30th, from 6 – 9 PM. For more specific details, please visit our other website https://ayso.bluesombrero.com/Default.aspx?tabid=963304
Northern Arizona/Greater Flagstaff Area – We have several teams in this area and we are always looking to expand. Our northern teams compete in the Greater Phoenix area leagues and the teams travel down for double headers every other weekend to play matches. They also compete in tournament play in Arizona, Nevada and sometimes Utah.
East Valley – This includes Mesa, Gilbert, Apache Junction, Florence and the San Tan Valley. Our home field is at Highland Junior High School for our open league and the teams train at different locations in the Mesa/Gilbert area.
Central Valley – This area includes South Phoenix, Ahwatukee, Chandler, Tempe and Guadalupe. Our home field is typically Pecos Park, but with the Phoenix Parks being closed, locations may vary. The training sites are in Tempe and Ahwatukee schools.
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.
• 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
