Amboy AYSO Age Divisions

U-06 Division

Our U-06 division is specially designed for our players in both the U5 and U6 divisions (U= under, so U5 players are 4 years old / U6 players are 5 years old). All players in this division are taught the elementary rules of soccer through fun and exciting drills like Sharks and Minnows, Clean Your Room, and Bad Coach. At the end of the season, players will have learned the skills necessary to stop, pass, dribble, and throw-in their very own soccer ball, that we give them to keep.

The U-06 division is designed to allow all players to play with all other players in their division.  Parents are encouraged to cheer every player on the field, but are discouraged from coaching from the sideline. Our goal is exercise, and entertainment for the children, as they learn to play soccer.  We do not keep W-L records.

For a child to be eligible to register, he/she must reach the age of 4 by the August 1. If you'd like to register a child to play CLICK HERE.

U-08 to U-19 Divisions

Our soccer program offers rule teaching, skill building, and competitive matches without the burden of W-L standings. We believe that all players should play to win, but not in lieu of good sportsmanship and fair play. No soccer experience is necessary for a player to join, only the desire to play. AYSO's core philosophies are observed at all times.

In the U-8 division both teams and fields are small, play is short-sided and rules are simplified to ensure every player gets the maximum amount of playing time and touches on the ball.   There is no goalie (find out why here).

As players get older and move through the U10 / U12 divisions, additional concepts like goalies, positions, off-side, corner and penalty kicks are implemented. 

In U-14, players travel to towns in the area, to play against them.  FIFA's Laws of the Game are used to govern each game. 

By the time players reach the U19 division, games are 90 minutes in length and are governed by FIFA's Laws of the Game.
