AYSO Very Important Player (VIP)

AYSO Region 97 Newport is proud to offer the AYSO VIP (Very Important Player) Program for individuals 4 years thru adult who have physical, mental or behavioral challenges. These players usually have difficulties playing on a regular mainstream team. A special needs player may be autistic, have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, developmental delays, lack social behavior skills, have down syndrome, cerebral palsy or limited mobility. 

Our VIP Players have a fun experience playing soccer and socializing with their VIP friends and VIP Buddies. We currently have two VIP Teams. Our younger team consists of 4 year old to 12 year old players and our older team consists of 13 year old thru adult players. Each team helps our players gain confidence, learn teamwork, understand the fundamentals of the game and enjoy physical exercise.

The AYSO VIP Region 97 Soccer registration is open year-round and is $30 including the AYSO National Fee. VIP seasons are offered in Fall and Spring and run for 10 weeks. Region 97's playing structure is a jamboree style, and all players receive uniforms. Players need to bring a water bottle and wear shin guards to every session. The first part of the session is devoted to skills training. In the second half of the session, players and buddies are divided into teams and play matches.  We finish by taking shots on goal.  At the end of the game, we provide snacks and say, "See you all next week!"  

Our spring play begins on Saturday, March 2nd from 2:45pm to 4:00pm at the Jack Hammett Sports Complex at 2750 Fairview Rd Costa Mesa CA 92626. Our AYSO Region 120 VIP Costa Mesa and AYSO Region 97 VIP Newport Beach play together at the Jack Hammett Sports Complex.

If you know of any Special Needs Child interested in playing have their parents register online by clicking the “Register Now” button on the top right side of this webpage. After completing the player registration choose the program “VIP Spring 2019 Special Needs Soccer. If you have any questions please contact Larry Wahl @ [email protected]
