    AYSO Region 88 is an all-volunteer organization. The volunteers within this Region are committed to creating a well-run, child-first environment so the children that participate may play soccer, meet friends, and grow into healthy, confident adults.  Every facet of what we do has “what’s good for the kids” at its core.  We volunteer to serve the children, your children.
