Anchorage Youth Soccer League
Summer Recreational League
Costs $160 | Cost includes a complete uniform (Jersey, shorts, and socks).
Deadline is Wednesday May 13th!!!!
The AYSL summer league is a recreational program with a season that runs from the week of May 25, 2015 through the week of July 24, 2015.
Teams are created randomly and are co-educational in nature. The focus is for players to develop their skills as well as to have fun playing the game of soccer.
Players will have one practice a week and will play one game a week. Teams are coached by volunteer parents, high school soccer players, and/or AYSC staff coaches. All games are officiated by licensed referees.
Players will need to wear shin guards, soccer shoes, bring a soccer ball and water bottle to all practices and games. Coaches will hand out uniforms at the team’s first practice. The Under 6 & Under 8 players will receive their uniform an hour prior to the first game.
We use volunteer coaches so If you are able to coach a team please email John Warren firstname.lastname@example.org and sign up as a volunteer coach on our website. Your child will get to play for free and we will provide coaching information and support along the way.
If you would like to request a teammate or a coach please email John Warren at ayscrec@gmail by May 14th for your request to be considered.
