AYSO Soccer Programs

We provide a variety of soccer programs to meet different needs and experience levels for all ages of children.  In keeping with the AYSO philosophy, everyone participates, and everyone plays; whether in a early training program or a competitive team,  all players will find opportunities to play and be involved on the field.     Volunteer driven, we encourage and provide training for everyone to have a role to support children's soccer as coaches, referees, or other areas of support.  

Recreational Soccer (U6  through U19)

Designed for players of all abilities and experiences, recreational soccer strives to create balanced teams with opportunities for all players to develop and improve their experience on the soccer field.  For U6 and U8 programs, games are typically local to Palo Alto while U10 and up may play neighboring regions.

The Palo Alto AYSO EPIC Program provides a quality soccer experience for children and adults, whose disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on mainstream teams.

Registration is free.  

Age Divisions placement for Fall 2024 & Spring 2025 seasons

AYSO age divisions are determined by birth year not school grade level.  

When making an inquiry about placement in a age division, please refer to the following chart and reference your child's birth year.  Your child's team placement will be based upon the division that their birth date falls under.
