Upcountry Maui American Youth Soccer Organization – A Fun Way for Kids to Exercise

Real estate Broker/soccer mom…

While real estate broker is my career (which I love), being a soccer mom is my life. I have three children who play soccer and I sit on the board of our Upcountry Maui AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) board. Online registration for our Fall 2011 season starts on April 30, 2011. Contact us at upcountryayso@yahoo.com.

“AYSO’s mission is to develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs which promote a fun family environment based on AYSO philosophies.”

AYSO philosophies:

  • Everyone plays
  • Balanced teams
  • Open registration
  • Positive coaching
  • Good sportsmanship
  • Player development

I have seen the positive effect that soccer has had on my family. My children are getting all of the benefits listed above as well as learning the importance of exercise as part of living a healthy life. Times are different from when I was young. Due to budget cuts from our Department of Education, most public school students no longer have physical education. Exercise is critical to healthy growth and development.

I encourage all parents/guardians to learn more about joining their local AYSO league. Get your children playing and take the time to volunteer in this program. It will be time well spent.

    Kris,

    This is what living on Maui is all about, kids and family. What a great place to bring up kids. They get clean warm air every day and it helps burn off a lot of energy. It is a whole lot better than TV, video games, and bags of chips and soda. Keep it up for Nicki and her brothers. You guys are a great family !!
