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

AYSO Carson City Region 140


Organization & Structure

AYSO Playground is a child development program!  The objective of this program is to help develop, in collaboration with parents or guardians, the child's fundamental motor skills using soccer as a common thread.

AYSO Playground is NOT a coaching program!

AYSO Playground consists of one Saturday per week for 6 weeks.  There is a definitive sequence to the sessions.  Parents are provided a copy of the Playground Curriculum at the mandatory parents meeting (click here for dates and locations).

All Carson City AYSO Region 140 Playground sessions are held at Pete Livermore Sports Complex (Edmonds Field) and Carson Middle School on Saturday mornings (click here for dates and locations).

Parent Volunteer Expectations

Parents, guardians, grandparents and other family members are integral to the success of AYSO Playground sessions.  Parent with child provides the best possible introduction to soccer for our youngest participants.  Each player will have a parent (or other adult) working with them on the field to help guide them within each activity. 

Sessions are led by a “Playground Leader” who will introduce and explain a game/activity that will apply to a certain fundamental motor skill or technical skill. i.e., balancing or dribbling, etc.  Groups are formed on a weekly basis (jamboree style) depending on how many players attend a given session.

·         Activity Leaders:  Parents (or other adults) will help run the session for each group.  They, along with the Playground Leader, will bring the parents and players back together after as a group and recap what they done and introduce them to the next game/activity.

In addition to helping with the sessions each week we need the following volunteers:

·         Snack Coordinator:  Parents to organize weekly snacks for the kids for after their sessions.  Ideally, 3 or 4 parents will volunteer each week to provide snacks.

·         Party Coordinator:  Parents to organize the end of season party.  These parents collect money for the party and trophy/medal.  (Approximately $10.00 to $20.00 per player.)

o   Parents can decide if they want to plan a combined party for girls and boys or plan separate parties.


As a part of the registration fee, each player receives an AYSO Playground jersey, soccer shorts, soccer socks and a size 3 soccer ball.  Players should bring their soccer ball to each session.

Soccer cleats are encouraged but not required!

EACH PLAYER MUST WEAR SHIN GUARDS TO EACH SESSION!  THEY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PLAY IF THEY DON’T HAVE SHIN GUARDS.  Shin guards are worn UNDER the player’s soccer socks.  The socks must completely cover the shin guard.
