Schoolyard Program


What is AYSO’s Schoolyard Program?

The Schoolyard program is specifically designed for our youngest players where children learn soccer skills like kicking, dribbling, passing, and shooting in a non-competitive format.  Schoolyard is about exposing children to the game of soccer, in a fun and safe environment, without the pressure to win. 

Who it is for:

For the Fall 2024 season, the Schoolyard program (U5) is catered to children who are born in 2020.

How it works:

  • There are no weekday practices.  Two sessions will be held on Saturdays only. You can choose and show up to the session that best fits your schedule.
  • There are no set teams.  Parents should check-in 15 minutes before start time under the canopy to get assigned to a field. Sessions will be conducted by trainers with the support of volunteer coaches.
  • Sessions will be 25 minutes of drills, then 25 minutes of scrimmage
  • Children will get water breaks throughout the session. All players get a snack bag the region provides as they come off the field.

When it will happen:

Sessions are scheduled to be held the following days at 9am and 11am. You can choose and show up to the session that best fits your schedule.

  • September 7
  • September 14
  • September 21
  • October 5
  • October 12
  • October 19
  • October 26
  • November 2
  • November 9
  • November 16

Where it will be:

The Park location is currently TBD but will be updated here and shared with parents via email once finalized. However, it will be at an East Chula Vista Park.

We ask that you provide the following for your player at each session:

  • Cleats
  • Shin Guards
  • Water
  • Size 3 Ball
