We welcome all from our diverse community

Evanston AYSO is committed to welcoming players of every background and playing level, and creating a safe, fun, and cooperative environment that prioritizes equity and is actively anti-racist. Evanston AYSO understands that representation matters and is committed to recruiting a more diverse community of volunteers, including leadership, coaches and board members. While Evanston AYSO is working to become more equitable and diverse, we still have much work to do. We will strive to be transparent and inclusive as we work to better represent the entire Evanston community, ensure that all players and families feel welcome, and make Evanston AYSO a fantastic and fun youth soccer program for everyone.

AYSO does not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, social-economic position, ability or disability.

If there's something we can do to help support your child in playing soccer, please let us know or talk to any member of the board.

AYSO Principles

6 Philosophies of AYSO

1. Everybody plays
We want kids to play soccer – we mandate that every player on every team must play at least half of every game.

2. Balanced teams
At the start of each season we try to set up teams as evenly as possible. It’s more fun for the kids when teams are of equal ability.

3. Open registration
Our programs are open to all children age 4-19 who want to play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only requirement for playing.

4. Positive coaching
We train and encourage our coaches to make the extra effort to understand and offer positive help to our players, rather than use negative criticism. This approach builds a positive team spirit.

5. Good sportsmanship
We create a positive environment based upon mutual respect, rather than a win at all costs attitude. All of our programs are designed to instill good sportsmanship in our kids and volunteers.

6. 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.
