The huge increase in interest in soccer, particularly in the U.S., is a fantastic opportunity for your Region to register more kids for next season. There are many creative ways to take advantage of the soccer craze, but the most important thing is to maximize your registration efforts now and be sure to communicate that a good portion of the U.S. Men’s National team currently in the COPA America tournament are AYSO alums. Brad Guzan, Steve Birnbaum, Alejandro Bedoya, Graham Zusi, Chris Wondolowski and Gyasi Zardes all got their start playing at AYSO. More importantly, this shows kids and parents that AYSO is the perfect place to have a blast and meet new friends, all the while building their soccer skills.
It’s an amazing time to be a part of AYSO and we wish everyone luck in this final registration push! Send us an email with what you’re doing to take advantage of the increased interest from the COPA America craze for a chance to be featured in a future edition of the AYSO Insider.
