AYSO United Alabama

About Us!








AYSO United - Alabama is a competitive youth soccer club based in Madison, AL and was founded in 2017. AYSO United is the competitive/travel/club soccer side of the AYSO Player Pathway soccer family and our main goal is to provide players with a positive playing experience, while developing their soccer skills to their full potential. Our teams participate in State-level and Regional-level competition, playing against other youth soccer clubs throughout the region. Our coaches are fully licensed and paid coaches, amassing years of experience between them. We pride ourselves on coaching players for their long-term soccer development (with the objective of players playing high school, college and beyond) and also for their holistic development as young people in the community. We have had enormous success even in just our brief 6 years as a club through our methodology, including numerous Alabama State Cup Championships and regional tournament successes.

Our objective is simple: we want our players to learn and develop as soccer players and as people, and we want them to enjoy themselves while doing it! We place a premium on a positive playing experience so that no matter where these children's soccer careers take them, they will always have a life-long love for the beautiful game!
