Recognized as a Platinum Region for its outstanding soccer program, AYSO Region 69, is now open for registration. All children born between 2003 and 2017, are eligible to play. Unlike many sports organizations, at least 45 percent of the players with AYSO are girls.
This is an all-volunteer organization that has served Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, Topanga and adjoining areas since 1975. The mission is to deliver a quality soccer program while building a positive character.
AYSO’s philosophies are 1) Open Registration, 2) Everyone Plays, 3) Balanced Teams, 4) Positive Coaching, 4) Good Sportsmanship and 5) Player Development.
Unlike club soccer, in AYSO everyone has equal playing time and positive coaching is emphasized—kids are not screamed at or pulled from a game because a coach emphasizes winning over player development.
Long-time volunteer Debbie Held said, “We invite you to join our AYSO Family, and look forward to meeting all of you. We need many volunteer coaches and referees and provide training, so don’t forget to sign up to volunteer when you register your children.”
To register visit: ayso69.org and go to the registration tab.
Parents who register by June 15, will receive the early registration discount of $360. After June 15, the cost is $400 and after August 1 it is $440. Parents are urged to register early, so players are ensured of being placed on a team, rather than waitlisted.
Those that do register early will receive one free day at any of the Region 69 Summer soccer camp sessions (two weeks each month at Palisades Recreation Center). Visit: aspiresoccercoaching.com for dates.
Held said, “We do expect to provide a normal season this fall. The last nine months, many of our families participated in our Practice Only program, which was conducted by our trainers. During the regular season, the trainers will provide assistance to coaches.”
