WELCOME TO AYSO REGION 9

Region 9 is located in the city of Thousand Oaks, California which is in the eastern part of Ventura County. We are part of Section 10, Area E. On average, our Region has just over 200 teams with over 2000 boys and girls ages 4-1/2 to 18 participating.

The success and growth of Region 9 is solely the result of the thousands of hours volunteered each year by our Coaches and Assistant Coaches (over 400); our adult and youth Referees (over 300); the parents who help staff our Information Booth, snack facilities and help as field crew members; and, of course, our Board of Directors (who are often a member of one or more of the previously mentioned volunteer types!)

Region 9 is administered by a Board of Directors consisting of Executive & General Board members. The Executive Board includes the Regional Commissioner (RC), Treasurer, Safety Director, Secretary, Regional Coaching Administrator (RCA) and Regional Referee Administrator (RRA) amongst others. The General Board includes all of the Division Administrators and several other program leaders. Some of these Board Members also have staffs to assist them, such as the RCA and RRA.

We believe that Child Development comes first; soccer is just one way to reach that G-O-O-O-O-O-O-A-L!
