Schoolyard Program for 5U

5U Parents – Children born in 2020

This season Santa Barbara AYSO Region 122 that serves the Santa Barbara, Montecito and Goleta area will change our program for our youngest players. Instead of having small teams with weekly practices and games, we’ll be implementing the National AYSO “Schoolyard” program. This program is structured to help develop your child’s fundamental motor skills and provide a pressure-free soccer experience.

Each child will be assigned to a pool of approximately 40 players and that pool of players will meet on Saturdays at Girsh park. The time may vary each week. Each child will be placed into a small group, different each week. Each group will be assigned to a specific field area (the 4 fields are adjacent to each other) for their session. Their field group for the day will be determined by when they check in at the Check In Tent (which will be next to those fields). The players must check in each day they attend. Each session will last 50 minutes and consist of a skills session managed by an experienced AYSO coach, assisted by the parents present, and followed by a supervised small side game activity. We will need the assistance of parents to help up with this program and to implement the Schoolyard Session Plan.

AYSO Six Philosophies

Everyone Plays®

Our program’s goal is for kids to play soccer—so we mandate that every player on every team must play at least three fourths of every game before any player plays the full game.

Balanced Teams

Each year we form new teams as evenly balanced as possible —because it is fair and more fun when teams of equal ability play.

Open Registration

Our program is open to all who want to register and play soccer.  Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing.

Positive Coaching

Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment by the players and ultimately leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players.

Good Sportsmanship

We strive to create safe, fair, fun and positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win at all costs attitude, and our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO.

Player Development

We believe that all players should be able to develop their soccer skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as members of a team, in order to maximize their enjoyment of the game.
