Updated Schedule and Rain Tomorrow

Hello AYSA Families!

We have made a change to the AYSA Fall Schedule. We are ADDING a session on 10/22.  This means the FINAL week of Rec Soccer will be: November 5.  We will now be using the November 6 date as the make-up date.  Make-up dates are used only when we need to cancel sessions due to weather.

The updated schedule is HERE.

We hope you are all enjoying your soccer this fall!  We are expecting rain tonight and tomorrow.  We plan on holding soccer even if it raining.  However, the Director of Coaching will make the call to cancel if he feels we need to do that.

If soccer is canceled, we will post the announcement on our website, on Facebook, and will send emails to everyone.
As of right now, we plan to play and have some fun!  Please dress accordingly!

We will see you all on Saturday!

All of us at AYSA!


We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday, September 10 for the opening day of REC SOCCER!

When you arrive, go to the tables, check-in, and pick up your player’s shirt.
