Alberta Soccer Vision: A centre of excellence for the game, providing opportunities for all players to reach their full potential
Alberta Youth Soccer League Vision: To create a competitive development environment venue which provides opportunities for all participants at the highest level of amateur youth soccer in Alberta and Canada
The Alberta Youth Soccer League (AYSL) is a partnership between Alberta Soccer, four (4) local District Members and seven (7) Canada Soccer National Youth Club License (NYCL) holders that is striving to achieve our vision while supporting the overall vision of Alberta Soccer.
The AYSL Partnership
In order to provide the competitive development environment necessary for players to achieve their peak performance it will take the 7 NYCL clubs, 4 local District Members and Alberta Soccer to continue to exceed the standards that have been set out by Canada Soccer. Working together we will provide a periodized schedule across the whole calendar year that will develop players technically, physically, psychologically, and socially. The schedule will be set-up to provide the proper amount of competition, training, and rest with specific focus on maximizing our ability to use indoor and outdoor facilities that create a true soccer environment.
