About AYSC


The Anchorage Youth Soccer Club (AYSC) was established in 1986 by Mary & Mike Norman as a 501(c)(3) organization, one of the first soccer clubs in Alaska and host of the oldest soccer tournament in the state, the Alaska Far North Invitational. AYSC prides itself on the quality of players both on and off the field, helping kids become reliable, successful and respectful human beings while growing and developing as soccer players. We are a full-service club, offering 

  • US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer), a community-based training program for all athletes with intellectual, emotional, and or physical disabilities
  • Recreational league
  • Futsal league
  • Preschool academy
  • Competitive levels

AYSC aims to support scholarships to anyone in need. It is our wish to allow any child who wants to play soccer, to play this great sport. We recognize that well-rounded, successful soccer players come from all walks of life. We are inclusive. Our club fundamentally believes that any child can develop to become an accomplished soccer player, given the right team atmosphere and coaching environment. Our coaching and administration staff is made up of independent contractors and volunteers who want the best for each player. AYSC’s primary focus is person, player and coach development. We use US Soccer’s curriculum and methods to produce well rounded players to enjoy the game of soccer (football) while advancing their game to the next level.

AYSC focuses on educating players and coaches while maintaining a positive environment. The club promotes sportsmanship, respect, and hard work while teaching the technical, tactical, physical and psychological components of the game. Creating a positive club culture is as important to us as creating a highly skilled and competitive player.

AYSC’s method of coaching has been very successful. Our club consistently represents at the US Youth Soccer Alaska State Cup with multiple state cup champions and finalists every year. We also have been and continue to show high presence in the Alaska Development Program ADP/ODP player, team and coach pools.
