Several AYSO Regions throughout the U.S. are teaming up with local universities to host events for their Regions. These events range from skills training and ball boy programs, to coaching clinics and large community get-togethers.
One example of this is Santa Barbara’s local AYSO Region’s involvement with the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). UCSB soccer has teamed up with AYSO to host a number of events, which kicked off with the annual Santa Barbara AYSO Coaches Clinic last weekend and will be headlined with the sixth annual AYSO Skills Day, which has consistently drawn over 1,500 attendees. The AYSO Skills Day event doesn’t require registration and is free to all AYSO affiliated players, coaches, and parents and will feature skill clinics with UCSB players and coaching clinics with UCSB coaches.
Team up with local universities to host events for your AYSO Region or Area. Events such as skills clinics and coach training bring great value to your AYSO programs, create a positive association with education and the community and are great promotional opportunities for your Regions.
