PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS

VIP PROGRAM

The AYSO VIP (Very Important Players) Program provides a quality soccer experience for children and adults whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on mainstream teams. VIP players may include: blind or visually impaired, amputees or with conditions that impair mobility, mentally or emotionally challenged, autistic, down syndrome, cerebral palsy.

VIP Goals: These players are Very Important Players in AYSO. We recognize that all people need to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance. The VIP Program offers that acceptance and carries our philosophy of Everyone Plays® to new heights – giving everyone a chance to play.

Unfortunately, Tri County AYSO does not currently have a VIP program but we do believe strongly in the foundation of this program and encourage you to participate in the program in Grant, MI, or Cedar Springs, MI
