Altoona AYSO


AYSO Region 452

Non-profit, Volunteer Program


Our mission is to provide quality soccer to the youth of the region through fun & positive programming and coaching.  The skills we learn on the field shape us into the people we become. We embrace the 6 philosophies handed down from National: Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship, & Player Development.

Player Role:

Players are asked to be prepared for each session with a ball, water, cleats, shinguards & covering socks.  Jerseys are provided and paid for by our Team Sponsors. Players are also asked to come ready to play. One of the core values we teach is RESPECT for ourselves, our teammates, our coaches, our parents, the fields, and the program.  We expect players to be kind to others & not inhibit the learning of others. The fields are a lot of fun, let’s work hard to keep them that way!

Parent Role:

The parents’ role at AYSO is to help us get your player to the field, then enjoy watching him/her play.  Our coaches go through training and are wonderful. If you are interested in volunteering we have many opportunities and would love the help.

Recreation Program Description:     Each of our divisions is designed to teach players in their developmental stage of growth.  Children will cognitively develop at different rates and different ages. Spacial awareness and perception is one such development that will be gained between the ages of 4 & 10.  This gives them the ability to ‘see’ the field and play in position.

We play small sided games for our in-house program.  This is done for technical & tactical development & engagement in the game.  Small fields allow for more touches on the ball for players. This engages both new players and experienced players making games faster and more fun for all.  It also allows for more creative thinking on the fields, touches of the ball, coachable moments and team work.

Development Clinics Descriptions:     Each of our Development Clinics is designed and executed to build on players individual skill levels.  Whether you are looking to become a skilled keeper or increase your creativity on the field, or learn how to play better offense or defense, etc. these clinics will be effective.

Competitive League:     When players are ready to start the the next step, from recreational play to competitive, they join the competitive program.  Here they will have the opportunity to play a minimum of 4 friendlies and 5 tournaments, at the discretion of each team.  This program transitions players into a 'team' concept, from purely individual development.
