Programs

AYSO Area 1-C oversees a variety of youth soccer programs in the West San Gabriel Valley. A short description of each program can be found below. If you have any questions about a program, please contact the board member who administers that activity.

Upper Division

The AYSO Area 1-C Upper Division Program has boys and girls teams in the U16 and U19 age groups. Each region may field one or more teams in each division and all play is inter-regional. Games are played in September and October and the season concludes before the start of the high school soccer season.

YDP

The AYSO Area 1-C Youth Development Program (YDP) is an AYSO National program for U10, U12 and U14. This program runs from mid-March to mid-May and is separate from each region’s regular season program. YDP offers advanced training and inter-regional play while upholding AYSO’s six philosophies.

All-Stars

Each region in AYSO Area 1-C is encouraged to form All-Star teams at the U10, U12 and U14 age groups. Each age/gender group may form two teams, designated as the Section team and the Area team. Teams play a league schedule in January and February each year with the eventual winners advancing to the Section Tournament held in March.

Play Through

The regular season champion and runner-up in the U10, U12 & U14 divisions from each region play a tournament in January. The tournament champions in each division advance to the Section Play-Through Tournament to compete against other area champions from around Southern California.

VIP

The AYSO Area 1-C Very Important Player (VIP) program was established to meet the needs and abilities of physically and mentally challenged persons of all ages. The laws are modified, if necessary, to account for any issues of mobility or comprehension.
