Starting this fall, Region 678 players four years and older who have a disability that would make it difficult for them to play successfully on a mainstream team will have an opportunity to play soccer at their own level. There is no upper age limit. Teams will be formed based on size, ability levels and age.

The VIP teams are not limited to ambulatory players. Players using wheelchairs, walkers, and other assistive devices are welcome to register. AYSO Region 678 has always operated with the philosophy “Everyone Plays,” meaning every player must play at least three quarters of every game. The VIP program expands that philosophy to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to play soccer.

Registration is now open for the Fall 2013 season. For more information, contact Louis Chevalier, Regional Commissioner at commissioner@ayso678.org.
