The Six Philosophies of AYSO

Everyone Plays

At least half of every game.  In U6-U14, Redwood City goes further than the national regulations by requiring that "no player will sit out 2 quarters until all players have sat out 1 quarter."

Open Registration

AYSO has sign-ups, not try-outs. As long as there is space on a team, every child who signs up will play.

Balanced Teams

Skilled/talented players are evenly distributed among all teams in a league to promote balanced competition.

Positive Coaching

AYSO believes in building soccer skills and self-worth through encouragement and teaching.

Good Sportsmanship

AYSO has active programs to promote positive behavior on the fields and on the sidelines.

Player Development

All players should be able to develop their soccer skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as members of a team, in order to maximize their enjoyment of the game.
