Club Description

Anchorage Youth Soccer Club Alaska (AYSC) in Alaska is a non-profit soccer club that was founded in 1986 by two local Alaskans. The club offers various soccer programs for boys and girls of all ages and levels, from preschool to senior. AYSC is also an official Alliance Club of the MLS Portland Timbers and the NWSL Portland Thorns FC, which allows them to share information, resources and players with the professional teams.

AYSC’s vision is to be a leading soccer club in Anchorage that is committed to developing both players and coaches in a positive environment. The club’s mission is to provide a positive club culture and stay committed to the development and growth of all players to help them reach their goals. The club’s philosophy is to focus on educating players and coaches while maintaining a positive environment, promoting sportsmanship, respect, and hard work, and implementing age-appropriate training sessions by educated and licensed coaches.

AYSC offers a variety of soccer programs for different ages and levels of play. One of them is TOPSoccer, which is a community-based training program for all athletes with intellectual, emotional, and/or physical disabilities. Another one is Recreational Soccer, which is a year-round program for players who want to have fun and learn the basics of the game. AYSC also has a Preschool Soccer Academy, which is a program for players aged 2.5 to 5 years old who want to develop their motor skills and coordination through soccer activities.

For players who want to compete at a higher level, AYSC has Competitive Soccer Teams for players aged 8 to 18. These teams are part of the Timbers and Thorns program, which means they wear the same uniforms and logos as the professional teams and have access to their resources and opportunities. AYSC’s competitive teams participate in local, regional, and national leagues and tournaments, and receive high-quality coaching and training. AYSC also has a Senior Team in the United Premier Soccer League for players aged 17 to 28, which is a semi-professional league that provides a pathway to the professional level.

In addition to these programs, AYSC also organizes Camps and Tournaments for all ages and levels throughout the year. These events are designed to provide fun, challenging, and rewarding experiences for the players, as well as to showcase their skills and talents. AYSC’s camps and tournaments are open to both members and non-members of the club, and are a great way to improve one’s soccer abilities and make new friends. AYSC invites anyone who is interested in soccer to join their family and enjoy the beautiful game. To learn more about AYSC and their programs, visit their website at
