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.
Introducing Spring 2015 Soccer Academy
Spring Academy will run March 16th to May 16th (except for Spring Break and Extra tryout week (TBD))
- U6 Boys Monday 4-5pm U6 Girls Thursday 4-5pm
- U8 Boys Tuesday 4-5pm U8 Girls Wednesday 4-5pm
- U10 Girls M/W 5:15-6:30pm U10 Boys T/TH 5:15-6:30pm
- U12 Girls M/W 6:45-8pm U12 Boys T/TH 6:45-8pm
- U14-U19 8:15pm to 9:30pm (Days TBD)
Our intention is to use the age group the players will be playing in the Fall. (So a player who played their 2nd year of U10 would play U12 for Spring Academy.) Our ability to do this depends on number of player sign ups...so stay tuned.
Games/Scrimmages will be held on Saturdays with the exception of U8 boys and girls who will play on Thursday and Friday afternoons.
We are very excited to introduce a new and completely different Spring program. The Spring program is a skill-focused player development program for motivated and dedicated soccer players of all ages. Our Spring Soccer Academy is a ten week program focusing on technical training to maximize players skills and confidence in preparation for the Fall season. Our goal is simple: Player development to help all players and coaches improve their skills through high quality, intensive technical training. Sign-ups begin on 12/15/14 are on www.eayso.org. (log in, signup for other programs and follow the prompts.)
