American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

Welcome to AYSO Region 1099 - Half Moon Bay

Core Program - 8U to 19U

Our core program is the foundation for all the fun, excitement and learning that happens on the fields. AYSO is best known for its core program – it’s where the large majority of kids fall in love with soccer and make memories that will last a lifetime.

There are six core values – or what we call AYSO’s Six Philosophies – that are the foundation of our core program, and all others: 

- Everyone Plays
- Balanced Teams
- Open Registration
- Positive Coaching
- Good Sportsmanship
- Player Development

These are the essence of AYSO and it all starts with Everyone Plays.  Here in AYSO, Everyone Plays means that no kid spends their soccer experience sitting on the bench.  Every kid plays at least half of every game.  Also, teams are put together in a way that makes playing soccer about the experience, not wins or losses.  It’s not about blowing out another team with an unbelievable score; it’s about sportsmanship and learning to be the best possible team mate and opponent.  Developing players is what we’re about, because soccer skills and life skills go hand in hand.  AYSO’s main purpose is to get kids on the field, provide them with good coaches, and teach them to play soccer.

5U Schoolyard Program

Soccer is for people of all ages – even the little ones!  

AYSO created Schoolyard, or the 5U program, for four and five-year-olds.  Schoolyard uses group activities, soccer themes and parent participation to develop the fundamental motor skills that prepare kids for all sports.

Our Schoolyard program is led by a professional Master Coach from the UK Challenger Sports, assisted by volunteer parent coaches.  In Schoolyard, children get to play soccer in an age-specific program, and we encourage you, the parents, get to participate with them! 

Sessions are 45 minutes each Saturday morning during the season.

6U Jamboree Program

In Jamboree, our 6U program for five and six-year-olds, each team is made up of three to four players and each player will have a volunteer coach with them on the field. The children learn soccer skills like kicking, dribbling, and throwing in the ball, but in a low-pressure setting. 

Jamboree is about exposing children to soccer, not grooming them for college scholarships. Parents and volunteers help organize the teams, set up fields and supervise the program.  While their children are playing, volunteer coaches keep time, but interfere with play as little as possible. There are only a few reasons to stop play in Jamboree games. If a child is not playing well with others, or if play must pause for injury, substitution, confusion, or to watch a flock or birds fly by, coaches can quickly direct attention back to the game.  

In Jamboree, goals are not counted to determine who wins - every player is a winner.  Young players need to get a feel for the ball and the field, so even though there are adults all around and many opportunities to offer instruction, the emphasis is on fun and play.  It’s a different kind of game in 6U, but the children still wear jerseys, cleats and shin guards.  Best of all, they find out that soccer is something they can do.
