About AYSO


The American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) is the oldest national youth soccer program in the United States. AYSO was established in 1964 with only nine teams by a handful of soccer enthusiasts out of a garage in Torrance, California. They wanted to make sure American kids were introduced to the beautiful game. Five decades later, AYSO has thriving programs in nearly 900 communities all over the country. Today, AYSO is a National Association of the United States Soccer Federation, and is the largest soccer club in the world with more than 50,000 teams and 500,000 players, and more than 6 million alumni!

Great soccer started here more than 50 years ago!  Take a journey through the decades, starting from AYSO’s foundation to the present day, and learn more about the biggest soccer club in the world. 

AYSO is made up of 14 Sections.  Each Section is divided into Areas, and within each Area are about 7-12 different Regions (community and city-based leagues).  There are well over 1,000 different Regions across the country.
