Pass Area – Region 641 is the AYSO Soccer organization for the cities of Beaumont, Banning, Cabazon and Cherry Valley, in Southern California.
AYSO is child-first and child focused. We are a soccer organization with happy, healthy kids as our passion. Every decision, every rule and every program has “what’s good for kids” as its basis. Every girl and boy stepping on a soccer field for the first time can have fun. AYSO’s child-first approach also makes it one of the finest player development programs. Everybody likes to win, but developing successful players and people is what’s fundamental in AYSO.
Our Vision is to provide a world class youth soccer program that enriches children’s lives.
Our Mission is to develop and deliver you a quality youth soccer program which promotes a fun, family environment based on AYSO’s Six Philosophies: Everyone Plays®, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development.
We Are Volunteer Powered
Pass Area AYSO is a volunteer-run organization. Coaches, referees and administrators are volunteers. Many parents, neighbors, relatives and friends lend their time and talents so that each child gets a terrific AYSO experience.
Our volunteer staff works countless hours to build and maintain the program. As the program continues to grow more volunteers are needed to cover vital areas and reduce workload on individuals that often hold multiple positions.
If you believe in AYSO, your community and our children and want to become a volunteer, contact us and get the registration process started.
About Our Board Members
Pass Area AYSO Region 641 is led by a board of directors (Board Members) who help with strategy and implementation of creating a great soccer program for children. There are seven required board positions in every Region, but the board can include others to help with the process.
The History of AYSO
The American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) was established in the Los Angeles area in 1964 with nine teams. It was the dream of a group of devoted soccer enthusiasts who started the organization in a garage. Today, AYSO has more than 50,000 teams and more than 600,000 players. It also employs 50 people at the AYSO National Office in Torrance, Calif.
Over the years, AYSO has created many valuable programs and concepts. Most notably, AYSO revolutionized youth sports with its “Everyone Plays®” and “Balanced Teams” philosophies. In AYSO, each child who registers is guaranteed to play at least half of every game. To help create evenly matched games, all AYSO players are placed on new or “balanced” teams each year. These decisions are made based on each player’s skill level and the overall ability of the team.
Since its establishment, AYSO has continued to grow and offer its membership relevant programs. Continue reading…
