Welcome to AYSO Region 305 in Concord, CA. We are a 100% volunteer based organization that provides a quality soccer program for: children between the ages of 4 and 19, and adults age 19 and older. We also provide a Very Important Player (VIP) program for children with physical, and/or mental challenges starting at age 6 and, we are the Home of Concord United, our traveling Elite and Select soccer programs for children between the ages of 8 and 19.
Our goal is to provide every child who wants to play soccer, the opportunity to do so regardless of experience or skill level, in a safe, fair and fun environment while adhering to our AYSO philosophies:
Everyone Plays® Our program's goal is for kids to play soccer so we mandate that every player on every team must play at least 50% of every game. It’s no fun to spend the game on the bench…and that’s no way to learn soccer!
Balanced Teams Each year we form new teams as evenly balanced as possible because it’s more fun and a better learning experience when teams of similar ability play. It allows for each player to gain the experience of a wide variety of teammates of different skill levels.
Open Registration Our program is open to all children between 6 and 19 years of age who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing. There are no elimination try-outs and nobody gets cut.
Positive Coaching Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment for the players and leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players. A coach can be one of the most influential people in a child’s life, so AYSO requires they create a positive experience for every boy and girl.
Good Sportsmanship We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO.
Player Development We believe that all players should be able to develop their soccer skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as members of a team, in order to maximize their enjoyment of the game.
