Safety Is Our First Priority

Hello AYSO community,

Welcome to Safety First, AYSO’s primary spot for community safety concerns.

AYSO’s Vision is to provide world class youth soccer that enriches children’s lives, through our Six Philosophies: Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development. We aim to do all this and provide a safe, fair and fun environment for all of our 1.6 million players, volunteers and families.

This page was designed with safety at the forefront of our minds. Every other week a new blog post will be published addressing one specific issue of safety. We want our entire AYSO community to be able to use this page as a valuable resource.

Included on this page are AYSO’s Social Media policy, Privacy policy and more. I invite you to use them to the fullest.

Yours in Soccer,


Mike Hoyer
