AYSO Region 177 is located in Long Beach/Belmont Shore, California. The goal of AYSO Region 177 and the AYSO organization is to encourage the growth of soccer and promote positive child development. AYSO is a parent-based volunteer organization providing a soccer program for all children regardless of experience or skill level. Registration of your child in our program implies responsibility to the team and adherence to the six principles of AYSO: Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Positive Coaching, Open Registration, Good Sportsmanship, Player Development.

Final Week of the Spring Academy

Date: NORMAL Schedule M-Th at Stearn

Come enjoy the last sessions and say good bye to our fantastic coaches that have worked with us all spring. They can't stop talking about how much they have enjoyed being in Long Beach and how rewarding it has been to be a part of this successful project.

There will be no small sided games this week. El Dorado is closed for field overhaul and this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend.

We are very pleased with the player development this spring. It is so much more fun to play good soccer. There were many smiles on the faces of players using their skills on Saturday.

Petition for Safe Fields for our Players

Please sign our petition regarding soccer fields for our region:

Petition Link for El Dorado Park #1

Long Beach has a serious problem in that we lack safe and appropriate spaces for youth field sports. This is a proposal to build an artificial turf field at El Dorado Park #1 (North). The current field is very unsafe and has already been responsible for at least one broken leg and multiple other injuries resulting from gopher holes and uneven ground on this field.

We currently have city money earmarked for this field and we need the Long Beach Parks and Recreation Department and City Council to move forward with the proposed fields so that we don't lose the momentum that's been in gained on this initiative over the past few years. It has taken much effort to get things to this point and we now need to move forward at this point.

Projects that benefit youth are difficult to measure by ballots and line items. The benefit to the community can't be measured in votes and dollars, but goes a long way toward improving the quality of life for our young families with children. We want families to want to live and raise their children in Long Beach.

Youth sports, run appropriately, can be an integral part of a healthy and thriving community. It combats our epidemic of childhood obesity, keeps children in school, out of crime, decreases unwanted pregnancies, and in general, helps develop the character of our future citizens and leaders.
