American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.



Open to 4 Year Old Boys and Girls 

We will be using the Jamboree format for 4 year old boys and girls participating in AYSO this season.

The objective of the program is to provide young players and their parents with a "pressure free" introduction to the beautiful and simple game of soccer. At this age, players should be exposed to soccer by playing simple, fun activities and games that require little to no practice, and a minimal time commitment.

In AYSO soccer, a jamboree means that teams are formed on a weekly basis depending on how many players attend a given session. Each player will be required to have a parent working with them on the field. A Master Coach will lead each session. The Master Coach will introduce the game/activity that will focus on a specific skill. Each player/parent will then practice the activity. Each Jamboree session will have 2 - 3 activities. Games will be introduced towards the end of the season.

The season will consist of 6 - 8 sessions held on Sunday afternoons (exact time has not been determined yet), starting after Labor Day and end in October. Each session will run around 1 hour. The children will receive a uniform consisting of a Jersey, shorts, socks.

The Ball: 
A size 3 ball is used

Player Equipment: 
Shoes and shinguards, covered by the socks are mandatory at all practice and game activities. Soccer shoes, tennis shoes, or similar type athletic shoes are recommended. The type and condition of cleated shoes must be inspected for safety before use.


If you are not available to participate 80% of the time with your child, please do not sign up. Please wait until your child is 6 yrs old, when they will be able to participate in a traditional team format.

We have offered this program for the past few years with utilizing a coach trainer. It is an excellent way to introduce your child to soccer. The kids and parents have a lot of fun. The feedback has been very positive.
