There are no tryouts and they strive to keep the teams as balanced as possible. Every child who plays will play a minimum of 1/2 of every game. Coaches are trained to work with children in a positive, encouraging way and good sportsmanship is a major focus.

    AYSO is primarily a volunteer organization. If you would like to volunteer, there are many way you can help. They need coaches, assistant coaches, referees, and help with a variety of administrative tasks. You can also become involved by sponsering a team or an individual child.

    If you would like to become involved and are not sure which region you are in, there is contact information on the Ogden (Region 351 ) website or at the bottom of the AYSO Region Web Page. They can answer your questions and/or refer you to the correct region for your area.

    Competitive Soccer

    For players who are past the beginning stages, there is the Utah Youth Soccer Association. They have state and local competitive leagues for ages U10 through U19. At the state level, teams are assigned to divisions based upon their records.
