About us.

AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) is a nationwide non-profit organization that develops and delivers quality kids soccer programs in a fun, family environment based on AYSO’s Six Philosophies. We are an all-volunteer organization providing youth soccer programs for kids aged 4-19 on Chicago’s north lakefront. Our programs include the core kids soccer league, youth travel soccer, indoor soccer and our VIP program for children whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on mainstream soccer teams.

AYSO’s Vision is to provide world class youth soccer programs that enrich children’s lives.

AYSO’s Mission is to develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs which promote a fun, family environment based on AYSO’s Six Philosophies:

  • Everyone Plays®
