What is AYSO Playground?

·        AYSO Playground is a child development program. The objective of this program is to help develop, in collaboration with the parent or guardian, the child’s fundamental motor skills using soccer as a common thread. This is a non-competitive program that concentrates on developing soccer skills. They will not be playing games, but participate in fun soccer activities.

Playground is not a traditional soccer program -- there are no scrimmages, soccer matches, or practices. That begins at 6U in our Core Program. It is more like a "Mommy & Me" or "Daddy & Me" program. Challenger Coaches will lead parents and players through fun activities each Saturday. Parent participation is a must. Players participate each Saturday with their parent (or other adult) working with them on the field. There are no mid-week practices, just the activity on Saturdays. Your registration includes a uniform, photo, and award.

** Playground is a program specially designed for 3 to 4 year olds to develop Fundamental Motor Skills that will prepare the child for soccer and other sports. The player must be 3 years old by the date of the first Region activity. The Region must set the registration minimum age date to the day and month of first activity minus three years.  4 years olds can be from Jan 1st to Dec 31st. 

The effective date of age determination for registration shall be the player's age as of December 31 looking ahead of the Membership Year. Example: For MY2017 the division the child will be placed in will be determined based on their age as of December 31, 2018. This age determination does not apply to Playground or Schoolyard division.  For example, if your first activity is 9/2/2017 your minimum age date will be 9/2/2014 so that the child can be three years old by that date.
