Remember the Outdoors? Broadview Helps AYSO Gets Kids Outside
Published on June 21, 2013 by Scott Rudeen
Kids love to play. Remember the days when you played outside? Those days are hard to find with video games, trampoline venues, and indoor arcades. However, American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) is keeping the outdoors enjoyable. The organization is child-first focused with every decision, policy and program geared toward what is best for the child. Every child is guaranteed to play 50 percent of every game.
This year, Broadview University-Layton helped register children for AYSO, with staff and student ambassadors volunteering their time. Those who volunteered were impressed with how organized the AYSO registration process was. The crowds came in waves to register. Many families had multiple kids signing up to play. This was a fun and rewarding experience for everyone.
Jamie Curry from AYSO showed appreciation to our volunteers in an email which stated, “I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all your volunteers. They were fabulous! I have seen many volunteers over the years, but these were the best I’ve ever had. They were so helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and willing to help. I truly appreciate them coming and giving their time for me. I don’t think registration would have been possible without them.”
Soccer is a growing sport in America that is global in nature where you can find friends in any corner of the world. In a growing global economy, finding commonalities increases this global community. Soccer prepares kids for the increasing global market by teaching teamwork, decision making, and strategic thinking in addition to building skills in running and kicking a ball.
AYSO has six philosophies to help nurture and expand upon these skills.
- Everyone Plays®
- Balanced Teams
- Open Registration
- Positive Coaching
- Good Sportsmanship
- Player Development
