Middleville AYSO Region 277

Season Layout

Middleville AYSO's playing season is both Fall and Spring. Registration begins in May, and ends in July. Teams are formed in August. Practices begin when TK Schools start. Fall games start after Labor Day. We take a break over the winter, and then the same teams start up again in April playing into early June.
There are no refunds for players choosing not to play the second half of the season.

5U Schoolyard

In Schoolyard players learn soccer skills like kicking, dribbling, and passing, but in a low-pressure setting. Schoolyard is about exposing children to soccer without pressure.

Players will learn soccer themed Fundamental Motor Skills and finish with 3v3 scrimmages.

With the help of an AYSO trained leader, parents help take turns organizing the groups and supervising the program. During scrimmages parent volunteers keep time, but interfere with play as little as possible. There are only a few reasons to stop play in Schoolyard. If a child is not playing well with others, or if play must pause for injury, substitution, confusion, or to watch a flock of birds fly by, parents can quickly direct attention back to the game.

Schoolyard is different, young players need to get a feel for the ball and the field, so even though there are adults all around and many opportunities to offer instruction, the emphasis is on fun and play. Best of all, players find out that soccer is something they can do!

Each player needs a parent or adult helper…. But, don’t worry you’ll have fun!



4U Playground

Designed for 3 year-olds, AYSO Playground is a child development program to help develop the child’s Fundamental Motor Skills using soccer as a common thread. The program allows participants to gradually discover the game for themselves by scaffolding activities in a fun AYSO environment. Meanwhile, parents or guardians are introduced to AYSO with a goal of developing them into volunteer coaches, referees and administrators.

This is NOT soccer games, this is Fundamental Motor Skill Development (FMSD) that will lead
into future soccer specific skill learning. This program was designed by child development and soccer experts to give your child a foundation for sports success.  Your player will hop, skip, jump, run, throw, balance, kick… and play. 

Each player needs a parent or adult helper…. But, don’t worry you’ll have fun!
