American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

Alhambra/Monterey Park


Primary/Core (Fall)

This program is open to all players ages 4 through 18* and starts the first Saturday after Labor Day, with practices starting a few weeks prior.  The season runs through the first Saturday in December, with Thanksgiving weekend being the only official off-day.  


Our core program is the foundation for all the fun, excitement and learning that happens on the fields. AYSO is best known for our core program – it’s where the large majority of kids fall in love with soccer and make memories that will last a lifetime.

There are six core values – or what we call AYSO’s Six Philosophies – that are the foundation of our core program, and all others: Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development. These are the essence of AYSO and it all starts with Everyone Plays.

Here in AYSO, Everyone Plays means that no kid spends their soccer experience sitting on the bench. Every kid plays at least half of every game. Learn more about AYSO’s Six Philosophies here.

Also, teams are put together in a way that makes playing soccer about the experience, not wins or losses. It’s not about blowing out another team with an unbelievable score; it’s about sportsmanship and learning to be the best possible team mate and opponent. Developing players is what we’re about, because soccer skills and life skills go hand in hand. AYSO’s main purpose is to get kids on the field, provide them with good coaches, and teach them to play soccer.

 Jamboree (U5)

In Jamboree (4 year old*), goals are not counted to determine who wins - every player is a winner. Young players need to get a feel for the ball and the field, so even though there are adults all around and many opportunities to offer instruction, the emphasis is on fun and play. It’s a different kind of game in U-5, but the children still wear jerseys or pinnies, cleats and shin guards. Best of all, they find out that soccer is something they can do. 

*Must turn 4 before the first game day

 Upper Division (U16/U19)

As AYSO players get older, many join leagues or high school soccer teams looking for more soccer experience. AYSO’s U-16/19 Program gives your teenage athletes another choice for competitive play. The program is organized under the rules and bylaws of AYSO philosophies and policies, but with a few adjustments to make it more enjoyable and accessible for teenagers.

The U-16/19 program is different than the standard program in a few ways: coed teams are allowed, there are more flexible guidelines for player substitution and travel teams are also an option. U-16/19 teams can also play against local high schools, participate in select teams and play against other.

 In the U-16/19 program, like the rest of AYSO, coaches and referees are involved on a volunteer basis. Fields and equipment are organized whenever possible by Regional leadership. And because the program is less formal and players participate in organizing play, games and practices can be set up to accommodate school and work schedules.

What is the All-Stars Program?

All-Stars is a separate additional traveling season of competitive soccer organized and run by Area 1C for players who have demonstrated excellence in soccer skills and enthusiasm and commitment to improve their skills.  Teams play an intense schedule with games on Saturdays and Sundays from January through the first weekend in March.

  • Players are selected by the head coaches of each respective division based on Player Rating Cards.
  • Many players in the region are NOT selected to an All-Star team. Those players that are selected to an All-Star Team  are expected to make all practices and games as there is an attendance requirement for all players in order to play in the All-Star Play-offs.
  • The number of All Star teams formed is often limited by the number of qualified parents who volunteer to referee and coach. Players whose parents volunteer to referee or coach during the All-Star Season will be given priority.

The league schedule competition includes teams from all Area 1C Regions and games may be held in ANY of these locations:

  • Arcadia (2)
  • Pasadena (13)
  • San Gabriel (40)
  • Alhambra (60)
  • Glendale (88)
  • Temple City (98)
  • South Pasadena and San Marino (214)
  • South El Monte (908)
  • Boyle Heights (1304)

There are three levels of All-Star play – Section, Area and Regional:

  • Section All-Stars is designed primarily for players who are in the “older” birthday year for each division.  Each region may enter one team in Area 1C’s Section All-Stars program in each of the boys and girls, U10, U12 & U14 divisions.   
  • Area All-Stars is designed primarily for players who are in the “younger” birthday year for each division.  Each Region may one team in Area 1C’s Area All-Stars program in each of the boys and girls, U10, U12 & U14 divisions.
  • Regional All Stars is designed to further the development of players in both the "younger" and the "older" age groups who have demonstrated excellent soccer skills and enthusiasm. A minimum number of youngers is required on each team.  Each Region may enter as many teams as it can support with qualified referees and coaches.
