Charting our course for the future
For nearly half a century, the American Youth Soccer Organization ("AYSO") has been delivering world-class soccer programs that enrich the lives of young people. We were and continue to be at the forefront of the growth of soccer as a sport of choice in America. In providing that leadership, we have never lost touch with our commitment to make certain that the sport grows in a way that both provides fun and contributes to the development of the whole child.
As we chart our course for the next quarter century, we recommit ourselves and our organization to the principles upon which we were founded. At the same time, we will not hesitate to take the steps and institute the changes that are necessary to ensure our continued ability to meet the needs of the children and families we are in business to serve.
Given the changes that have and will continue to occur in the lives of America's children and the sports landscape in which they play, we believe that serving our mission is even more important today than it was when we began to bring soccer to America's communities in 1964. That fact is reflected in the breadth and boldness of the elements of this plan for our future.
The young people and families we serve deserve the very best experience we can provide for them. As reflected in the plan, we are committed to doing nothing less.
