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

Welcome to AYSO Region 212


In Schoolyard players learn soccer skills like kicking, dribbling, and passing, but in a low-pressure setting. Schoolyard is about exposing children to soccer without pressure.

Players will learn soccer themed Fundamental Motor Skills and finish with 3v3 scrimmages.

With the help of an AYSO trained leader, parents help take turns organizing the groups and supervising the program. During scrimmages parent volunteers keep time, but interfere with play as little as possible. There are only a few reasons to stop play in Schoolyard. If a child is not playing well with others, or if play must pause for injury, substitution, confusion, or to watch a flock of birds fly by, parents can quickly direct attention back to the game.

Schoolyard is different, young players need to get a feel for the ball and the field, so even though there are adults all around and many opportunities to offer instruction, the emphasis is on fun and play. Best of all, players find out that soccer is something they can do!

Each player needs a parent or adult helper…. But, don’t worry you’ll have fun!
