Our core program is the foundation for all the fun, excitement and learning that happens on the fields.

AYSO is best known for our core program – it’s where the large majority of kids fall in love with soccer and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade: All programming occurs on Saturday morning.

Third through 12th Grade: Games are played on Sundays, with practices at the discretion of the coach. The most common practice times are Thursday night, Friday night and Saturday morning.

In-Town vs. Travel
Because of the size of our program, we are generally able to provide in-town programs with only our own players from Kindergarten through Fourth Grade. As the kids get older and the teams get bigger it becomes necessary to play against other Westchester AYSO cities like Armonk, Chappaqua, Pleasantville, Ossining, etc.

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. 

Balanced Teams
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.

Core  requires a lot of certified Coaches and Referee volunteers. In addition, our region is completely organized by a volunteer Board. 

As you can imagine, running things requires a lot of team work and all help - large or small - is appreciated.

About Core

The Full Season consists of Fall & Spring:

     - Fall runs from September – November
Spring runs from April – June.
We host full season (Fall & Spring) registration and a Spring-only registration.
Teams are formed for an  8-game Fall and an 8-game Spring season.

Registration for the Fall season takes place in the Spring with the first registration date being referred to as the Early Bird registration. All players registering at the Early Bird registration receive a discount. To receive the discount, you must register online and in advance of the deadline.

Certain other programs such as our AYSO Player Development Academy are additional and only available to Core players.

Each team has a registered volunteer coach(es) (generally, parent(s)) who are age appropriately train and certified. Training required to obtain certification is provided at no cost.
