Welcome to AYSO Region 1336, a youth sports program based in Rogersville, Tennessee. We are a member of the national American Youth Soccer Organization. Our mission is to develop quality youth soccer programs for children ages 4-18 and promote a fun, family environment based on the six AYSO philosophies.
AYSO’s philosophies are living tenets that separate it from other sports organizations. They are Everyone Plays®, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development.
Our program’s goal is for kids to play soccer so we mandate that every player on every team must play at least 50% of every game. It’s no fun to spend the game on the bench…and that’s no way to learn soccer!
Each year we form new teams as evenly balanced as possible because it’s more fun and a better learning experience when teams of similar ability play. It allows for each player to gain the experience of a wide variety of teammates of different skill levels.
Our program is open to all children between 4 and 19 years of age who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing. There are no elimination try-outs and nobody gets cut.
Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment for the players and leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players. A coach can be one of the most influential people in a child’s life, so AYSO requires they create a positive experience for every boy and girl.
We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO.
We believe that all players should be able to develop their soccer skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as members of a team, in order to maximize their enjoyment of the game.
In keeping with these principles, AYSO has created a dynamic program called Kids Zone The program is designed to eliminate negative sideline behavior. It is aimed toward producing a thoroughly positive impact on everyone involved in youth soccer.
AYSO is an all-volunteer organization. We thrive thanks to the parents, grandparents, friends and fans, who give generously of their time, energy, ideas and talents. AYSO believes that everyone has something unique to offer. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact us at 4.2.3. 5.2.3. 9.2. 0.8. or via email us at ayso1336 [at] gmail [dot] com.
