For the third year, the President’s Circle will recognize and salute those AYSO Regions that have not only met, but exceeded the AYSO commitment of bringing More Soccer to More Kids™. It is open to all AYSO Regions – small, large, rural, urban, suburban, affluent and of modest means – that through the efforts of their volunteer leadership have delivered the AYSO experience to a greater number of children and families.
The President’s Circle honors those Regions that have grown their player registration over two consecutive years (through April 30, 2014) with a minimum of 25 percent or 75 players in cumulative growth. Those Regions that play only spring/summer are included with their May 1-June 30 registration from the previous Membership Year added in to give a full two years.
No application is necessary for the President’s Circle as all information is calculated from player registration records in eAYSO.
An additional opportunity is available for Regions to be nominated for the President’s Circle if they do not meet the numerical criteria but have persevered in the face of a significant challenge to the growth or viability of the Region. These special nominations must be submitted in 300 words or less no later than April 18, 2014. Send nominations to PeteMacPhail@ayso.org.
Members of the President’s Circle must re-qualify each year.
While every AYSO Region faces its own unique opportunities and challenges, our vision is the same: to provide world class youth soccer programs that enrich children’s lives. The President’s Circle honors those AYSO Regions that are delivering on that vision in special ways. They will be announced in AYSO Insider, recognized at the AYSO National Annual General Meeting (NAGM) being held May 23-25 in Anaheim, Calif., and identified by a gold ribbon on their NAGM name badges.
