Player Development

AYSO United is Truly a Player Development Club

AYSO is renowned for its commitment to child development and putting the player before the game. AYSO United Knoxville continues this commitment as we value the growth of the individual player over team accomplishments solely. Our focus is on skill acquisition.

AYSO United flips the soccer building blocks upside down and prioritizes psychosocial development as the starting point to technical, tactical and physical advancement.

 50 Percent Playing time

 We guarantee every AYSO United Knoxville player will get to play at least 50 percent of the game to ensure they’re developing. This is promised at clubs all over the country, but rarely is accounted for. All players need to play to learn, develop and get better!

 Quality Coaching From Appropriately Licensed Coaches

 All players will receive training from a trained and certified (AYSO, U.S. Soccer or a NSCAA) coach, highlighting our commitment to education. Each coach is fully supported by our National Coaching program. We believe that supporting coach education enhances the players’ experience.

 Follow our U.S. Soccer Approved AYSO National Curriculum

 Our National Curriculum was developed in complete alignment with U.S. Soccer’s Zone 1 Player Development Initiatives, including the cornerstone of “Development over Winning.” All players will be taught age-appropriate techniques, allowing them to succeed on the field.

 Our curriculum carefully scaffolds for each age group to have appropriate methodology and technical and tactical development. All content and methodology is current and a global representation of today’s game.

 Roster Sizes Not Set by Financial Guidelines

Our teams are not formed with financial objectives, rather we embrace U.S. Soccer’s short-sided model as we feel that a focus on technique and skills will serve the player in the long run. Our AYSO United coaches are encouraged to only select the players who demonstrate the qualities to develop in the AYSO United model.

Players are there to play as part of the team, not simply be a squad number. Our roster sizes are limited to ensure maximum playing time for each and every player.
