Every AYSO Region faces its own unique opportunities and challenges, but our AYSO vision is all the same: to provide world-class youth soccer programs that enrich children’s lives. Each year the President’s Circle recognizes AYSO Regions that have not only met, but have also exceeded the AYSO commitment of Bringing More Soccer to More Kids™. It honors Regions that have grown their player registration numbers, as well as those who are delivering the AYSO vision in special ways.
The President’s Circle includes Regions that have grown their player registration over two consecutive years (through April 30, 2019) with a minimum of 25 percent or 75 players in cumulative growth. Those who play only in the Spring/Summer are included with their May 1-June 30 registrations from the previous Membership Year added in to give a full two years.
While all members of the President’s Circle must re-qualify each year, no application is necessary. All information is calculated from player registration records.
For Regions whom may not meet the numerical criteria, but have persevered in the face of a significant challenge to the growth or viability of the Region, an additional opportunity is available to be nominated for the President’s Circle. These Special Consideration nominations must be submitted in 300 words or less no later than Wednesday, April 10, 2019 to NiallFoy@ayso.org.
Winners will be announced in The Insider, recognized at the AYSO National Annual General Meeting (NAGM) being held June 7-9 in Newport Beach, Calif. and can be identified by a gold ribbon on their NAGM event name badges.
