"I do not judge success based on championships; rather, I judge it on how close we came to realizing our potential."

  • NCAA Championship Coach John Wooden


Dear Players, Parents, Volunteers and Visitors:


Your region needs your help - we need volunteer help in all sorts of ways.

  • Each board member should really have at least one assistant, if not more.
  • We are very low on Referees and could use your help. Most games are less than 1 hour long and are played once per week. We provide the training and a uniform.


If you can step up to help out for a few hours or a few days, this AYSO region can continue to provide the safest, most fun, children’s sports league in the Deerfield Area.


The more people that we have helping the less each and everyone has to do.


Please contact us at INFO@DeerfieldAYSO.org if you can help in any way.


Thank you for your time, the kids do appreciate it.


See you out on the fields

Stuart Slutzky,

Regional Commissioner

 Let The Kids Play
by: Bobby Howe

"Surveys of young players over the last few years have shown that the primary reason for players under 12 dropping out of soccer is that they were not having fun. The secondary reason is that they did not like their coaches.

Both reasons would indicate that those players were not exposed to appropriate playing environments for their age/or ability levels. Too much at too young an age would cause players to become disenchanted with the sport. Too little activity in practice sessions (drills) and games (too many players on the field) would cause players to become bored.

As coaches and administrators of our sport, we must create the environment for players to learn the game at their own pace without the pressure of impossible decision-making or the stress created by parental (adult) influence. We must allow kids to be kids and allow the game to provide their enjoyment.".....................
