AYSO Kids Zone

Kids Zone Information Page

In recent months, the national media has focused on the negative, even violent, behavior of players, coaches and parents involved in youth sports. In a proactive effort to counteract this trend of violence, AYSO has a program called Kids Zone®. (Read about the history of Kids Zone® here.)

As part of AYSO's education agenda, Kids Zone® is a dynamic program targeted to eliminate negative sideline behavior. It is aimed toward producing a thoroughly positive impact on everyone involved in youth soccer. To execute this program, four basic elements are involved:

    1. The Button. This is a pin-on button bearing the program's logo. This will be worn by program supporters at games, and will serve as a reminder of the importance of positive sideline behavior.

    2. The Sign. A large sideline poster, which lists positive behavior standards, designed to be posted at the entrance of participating fields. Parents and spectators who will abide by these standards are welcome -- all others are not.

    3. The Pledge. We will request AYSO parents to sign a pledge that holds them to the Kids Zone® standards.

    4. The Video.  This is a 12 minute documentary that introduces AYSO's principles and its Kids Zone® action plan to new participants.  Viewers will also watch a parent intervene to change another parent's negative behavior. 

In order to make this program work, we need your help!
