Challenge Teams Program
Competitive Play with AYSO Philosophy
AYSO offers an alternative to Duke City for accomplished players who want to increase their skills through play with and against more intense competition. The Challenge Teams Program includes teams from U10 through U19 who play in the Duke City Metro Schedule against "club teams" as part of AYSO's own Challenge Football Club.
AYSO players are selected for the teams through tryouts. They practice twice a week like other AYSO teams, but they play against teams in the Duke City Metro League (teams from the Duke City Soccer League, Northwest Rio Grande, and other Club Teams). Challenge teams also play in tournaments in town, throughout New Mexico, and out of state.
Check out the Challenge FC website to find out if Challenge is right for you.

The AYSO Challenge program is looking for Coaches to coach in the 2015-2016 Season.
We are excited about our 26 teams moving forward and participating next year and are looking forward in working with Current AYSO EXTRA/ACT/Tournament team coaches next year in Challenge. We are always interested in having other "club" coaches moving to or moving back to ASYO -- to take advantage of all the resources and support that AYSO Challenge can offer.
