American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

Pacifica AYSO 157


Our core program is the foundation for all the fun, excitement and learning that happens on the fields. AYSO is best known for our core program – it’s where the large majority of kids fall in love with soccer and make memories that will last a lifetime.

There are six core values – or what we call AYSO’s Six Philosophies – that are the foundation of our core program, and all others: Everyone Plays, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development. These are the essence of AYSO and it all starts with Everyone Plays.

Here in AYSO, Everyone Plays means that no kid spends their soccer experience sitting on the bench. Every kid plays at least half of every game. Learn more about AYSO’s Six Philosophies here.

Also, teams are put together in a way that makes playing soccer about the experience, not wins or losses. It’s not about blowing out another team with an unbelievable score; it’s about sportsmanship and learning to be the best possible team mate and opponent. Developing players is what we’re about, because soccer skills and life skills go hand in hand. AYSO’s main purpose is to get kids on the field, provide them with good coaches, and teach them to play soccer.


What days are games?
U5 Schoolyard plays on Saturday's at the same time each week. The schedule does not change. 
6U-18U play on Saturday's

When will the game schedules be released?
They are usually available 1wk before the first game. This is a very tedious task and requires a lot of time so please be patient as a volunteer manually handles scheduling. For 12U-14U, the Area handles the scheduling and for 16U-18U, the Section handles the scheduling. 

What times are games?
Historically, Region 157 starts play at 9:00am and ends by 4:00pm.  Each team plays one game on Saturdays.

Where do we play games?
6U- Oddstad (2023- PNLL @ Fairway)
8U- Ortega (2023- Fairmont West)
10U- IBL 
12U- Sanchez
14U-18U- Home games at Terra Nova High School
Playground/Schoolyard- Sanchez

Beginning at the 12U level, teams play against other AYSO regions, which can sometimes involve travel to those regions

Does every division have goalkeepers?
All but 6U have goal keepers. After Covid, National's Return-to-Play guidelines allowed Regions to bring back goalkeepers in 8U, which our Region opted to do so. We feel it helps prepare them for 10U and allows us to play 5v5.  

When are team practices?

Your volunteer coach will determine the times and location for team practices. Coaches can choose a day between M-F and time between 4pm-7pm. This information is not known ahead of forming teams.
