An AYSO Soccer Party !!
Opening Day & Golden Anniversary Celebration

WE are inaugurating an annual Opening Day Celebration and player fun event on this Anniversary year for AYSO.  

50 Years of Service to our nation, and 44 years of service in Palo Alto.  Yes, 44 years ago parents in Palo Alto began forming the first AYSO region in the Bay Area, and anchored the growth of AYSO through the south bay and peninsula.  AYSO regions from Redwood City to Saratoga and San Jose is a legacy of the original Palo Alto AYSO parents.
