About Ashland Youth Soccer

Ashland Youth Soccer is a 100% volunteer-run program with the mission of teaching children of all backgrounds and abilities the game of soccer through the development of individual skill, fitness, teamwork and fair play.

Outdoor programs are run for players ages 4.6 years-of-age through 12th grade in the Spring, and players in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade in the Fall.  Details for the programs offered in the Spring are outlined below.

Volunteers are critical to the success of AYS. If you are able to volunteer as a head coach or as an assistant coach, please sign-up when you register your player.  Training is available for coaches (both new and existing). Without volunteer coaches, there can be no teams, and even if you are unavailable to coach, there are other opportunities to contribute to the success of AYS so please consider contributing your time.
