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


Very Important Player Program

The American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) VIP (Very Important Player) program provides a quality soccer experience for individuals whose differences or challenges prevent them from successful participation on mainstream teams.

Our VIP program welcomes every child regardless of where they live or the complexity or nature of their challenges, physical, sensory, emotional, intellectual, behavioral, or any combination. If you think your child, age four or above, might like to be outside playing ball, would benefit from spending time with peers, would like to build a friendship with a high school "buddy," then we encourage you to join us!

Everyone Plays!
Our focus is on participation and fun! Our VIP coaches are flexible and positive, finding a way for all our VIP athletes to participate as fully as they are able. If you thought your son or daughter could not play soccer, think again! With VIP soccer, dreams become realities.

Everyone Benefits!
Through participation in VIP soccer, everyone gets to experience the thrill of belonging to a team, wearing uniforms, and making new friends. Our VIP athletes learn new skills and develop physical fitness while enjoying the game of soccer.

Each week our VIP athletes are paired with a "buddy" - a high school aged volunteer - to assist them on the field. The athletes get to interact with a big kid, the "buddies" get a chance to learn just how typical and capable kids with differences are, and parents get to relax, step back and watch their child do things they might not have thought possible.

Age Requirement
Participation requires that players be born before September 19, 2019

AYSO is an ALL VOLUNTEER organization. Volunteers are needed as VIP coaches, referees, and "buddies".   

A buddy is paired with each player to to assist them on the field, as needed. If you are a high school age student (or older) and would like to be a "buddy," please contact the VIP Director, Craig Bolotin at [email protected]
