Kid Zone


In recent months, the national media has focused on the negative, even violent, behavior of players, coaches and parents involved in youth sports. In a proactive effort to counteract this trend of violence, AYSO is initiating a program called Kids Zone. As part of AYSO's education agenda, Kids Zone is a dynamic program targeted to eliminate negative sideline behavior. It is aimed toward producing a thoroughly positive impact on everyone involved in youth soccer. To execute this program, three basic elements are involved .

The Badge
The Badge. This is a pin-on button bearing the program's logo. This will be worn by program supporters at games, and will serve as a reminder of the importance of positive sideline behavior.

The Sign
The Sign. A large sideline, which lists positive behavior standards, will be posted at the entrance of participating fields. Parents and spectators who will abide by these standards are welcome -- all others are not.

The Pledge
The Pledge. We will request AYSO parents to sign a pledge that holds them to the Kids Zone standards.

By entering this Kids Zone, you agree to the following:

" Kids are #1
" Fun - not winning - is everything
" Fans only cheer and coaches only coach
" No yelling in anger
" Respect the volunteer referees
" No swearing
" No smoking
" Leave your side of the field free of trash
" Set a good example
" Parents and players will follow your example
" Remember it's for the Kids!


If you agree to the above, we welcome you.

 

AYSO - It's for the kids! AYSO is an organization run by volunteers attempting to give children a SAFE, FAIR and FUN environment in which to play soccer. No one is paid.
