We currently offer 4 programs within AYSA. These programs offer a place to play for all ages and skill levels, for both boys and girls.
The Modified program (Mod) offers a fun, relaxed environment for younger kids to learn and grow their skills. The Mod program is targeted for children ages 4 to 9. For more details, contact Mod Director, James Gladwin.
The Recreational program (Rec) is targeted for children ages 10 to 18 that want to stay competitive but in a relaxed environment with minimal commitment. For more details, contact Rec Director, Chris Pearisaeff.
The Academy program is for kids ages 7 to 9 that wants to train with other motivated kids with similar abilities in a positive environment for soccer so that individual and team development can be accelerated. Our Academy players will have an enhanced opportunity to graduate into our older competitive Rainier Valley Slammers teams. For more details, contact Academy Director, DJ Pogson.
