Each year, the President’s Circle recognizes AYSO Regions that haven’t only met, but have also exceeded the AYSO commitment of Bringing More Soccer to More Kids™. The President’s Circle honors those Regions that have grown their player registration over two consecutive years (through April 30, 2016) with a minimum of 25 percent or 75 players in cumulative growth. Regions that play only spring/summer seasons are included with their May 1-June 30 registrations 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 when they may 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 Friday, April 15, 2016 to Pete MacPhail.
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 that vision in special ways. They will be announced in The AYSO Insider, recognized at the NAGM being held May 27-29 in Chicago, Ill. and can be identified by a gold ribbon on their NAGM name badges.
