Coaches and Schedules and Referees

Fall Season Info

Some very often asked questions this time of year: Who's My Coach? When do we get to see the schedule? Where's the Referee?

First, we are conducting division level annual meetings for all of our coaches this month. You should be hearing from your Coach within the next week unless. We still need lots of Mom and Dad Coaches for our U5 and U6 Divisions! Email Us To Get Started!!

Second the Schedule!! We always try to have the Fall schedule out the week before the first game which is September 10th this year. Plan to see the schedule the weekend of Labor Day. We know how important it is to be able to plan your fall, but it is a challenge to put together an 8 week schedule across 4 cities with over 300 teams where almost 50% are coaching more than one team! It's no small feat to get that up!

Last, We Need Parent Volunteers!! Being a Referee is super fun, super satisfying and we'll give you some of the best training in the US right here in Albuquerque! (oh, and a cool uniform and equipment too!). A game isn't any fun without a Mom or Dad helping to make it all happen! Click Hereand say "Hey, I'd Love to Referee!"

Welcome to AYSO Region 104

Serving Albuquerque, New Mexico Since 1978

Region 104 Logo

Welcome to AYSO Region 104 serving the youth of Albuquerque, New Mexico since 1978. We are the largest recreational youth soccer organization in town, with hundreds of local volunteers and about 2500 soccer players ranging from 4 to 19 years of age.

The American Youth Soccer Organization set out in 1964 to accomplish two goals. First, to promote soccer to American youth. If you've driven around Albuquerque lately and seen the number of parks filled with soccer players, you can see that goal has been accomplished. Second, to improve the way youth sports are conducted. AYSO wants to change the traditional youth sports paradigm where some kids never get to play and the only communication between coach and players involves the command "Drop and give me 20." How does AYSO accomplish that? Our mission is to develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs in a fun, family environment based on AYSO's Six Philosophies.

Field Markers

Not Just Magic

I'll bet you thought field marking happened by magic; illusive fairies descend on the fields at night and paint lines so we can play soccer. Well, it's something like that. It is our dedicated corps of volunteer field markers, often unseen and unacknowledged, who make sure our fields are properly marked for each game. They battle the elements and the city's mowing and watering schedule for the players. So if you happen to see someone paining lines on our fields, take a minute to shake their hand and say, "Thanks!" And if you'd like to volunteer to be a field marker, please e-mail the Field Marking Administrator. He will set you up with equipment and training.
