AYSO Core - Fall Recreational Soccer

Our Core Fall Soccer program is what we are best known for.  It's the foundation for all the fun, excitement and learning that happens on the fields. It’s where the large majority of kids fall in love with soccer and make memories that will last a lifetime.

AYSO Core is a locally based, Fall Soccer season that runs from August through October.  Matches are played locally, almost all in South Lake Tahoe itself.

There are six core values – or what we call AYSO’s Six Philosophies – that are the foundation of our program: Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development. These are the essence of AYSO and it all starts with Everyone Plays.

Here in AYSO, Everyone Plays means that no kid spends their soccer experience sitting on the bench. Every kid plays at least half of every game.

Also, teams are put together in a way that makes playing soccer about the experience, not wins or losses. It’s not about blowing out another team with an unbelievable score; it’s about sportsmanship and learning to be the best possible team mate and opponent. Developing players is what we’re about, because soccer skills and life skills go hand in hand. AYSO’s main purpose is to get kids on the field, provide them with good coaches, and teach them to play soccer.
