San Mateo AYSO is proud to be able to offer age-appropriate programs for children 4 through 18 years old on July 31. The soccer season typically consists of 10 games starting early September and ending mid-November(*). End of season tournaments are offered, weather permitting, for players in the Under 10 division and older.
AYSO is an all-volunteer organization. Parent participation is a critical element of the program with age-targeted training for Coaches and Referees available prior to the start of the season. No experience is necessary (training is provided) - just a desire to be a part of your child's world or a desire to serve the community.
Children in our youngest division are in an a Jamboree progam (more info here) and players in the next two youngest divisions learn soccer playing a "short-sided" game of soccer on a small field with small goals, no goalkeepers and no league standings. At every division, the team size and field size increases. Goalkeepers are introduced in Under 10 and league standings are recorded.
Players with Mental or Physical challenges can play soccer too. The VIP soccer program for children whose physical or emotional challenges make it difficult to participate on a traditional team. View the VIP brochure or view a 4 minute video presentation.
Kids Zone Feedback is a tool to provide feedback or express concern regarding your child's soccer experience in Region 36. Praises and suggestions are always appreciated. Issues with sportsmanship or safety are taken very seriously. The region's board needs your help in identifying issues promptly.
(*) Players in the Under 16 and Under 19 division play in the Area 2N which covers most of the regions within San Mateo County. Games are played in various cities and the playing season starts earlier than that for the Region 36 players who are under 14 years of age.
