President’s Circle to Again Honor Region Growth
For the third year, the President’s Circle will recognize and salute those AYSO Regions that have not only
met, but exceeded the AYSO commitment of Bringing More Soccer to More Kids™. It is open to all AYSO
Regions – small, large, rural, urban, suburban, affluent and of modest means – that through the efforts
of their volunteer leadership have delivered the AYSO experience to a greater number of children and
The President’s Circle honors those Regions that have grown their player registration over two
consecutive years (through April 30, 2014) with a minimum of 25 percent or 75 players in cumulative
growth. Those Regions that play only Spring/Summer are included with their May 1-June 30 registration
from the previous Membership Year added in to give a full two years.
No application is necessary for the President’s Circle as all information is calculated from player
registration records in eAYSO.
An additional opportunity is available for Regions to be nominated for the President’s Circle when they
may not meet the numerical criteria but have persevered in the face of a significant challenge to the
growth or viability of the Region. These special nominations must be submitted in 300 words or less no
later than April 18, 2014. Send nominations to PeteMacPhail@ayso.org.
Members of the President’s Circle must re-qualify each year.
While every AYSO Region faces its own unique opportunities and challenges, our vision is the same: to
provide world class youth soccer programs that enrich children’s lives. The President’s Circle honors
those AYSO Regions that are delivering on that vision in special ways. They will be announced in The
Commish, recognized at the AYSO National Annual General Meeting being held May 23-25 in Anaheim,
Calif. and identified by a gold ribbon on their NAGM name badges.
