Region 73 Jamboree (U5) Program           

Welcome to Region 73! We abide by the AYSO philosophies of Balanced Teams, Everyone Plays, Positive Coaching, Open Registration and Good Sportsmanship. Our Jamboree (U-5) policies and procedures are established along with National AYSO guidelines to ensure that all children can play soccer in a Fun, Fair and Safe Environment. We want to thank-you in advance for giving your time and effort in service to our Jamboree program. 

> T
he Jamboree program is for both boys and girls. There are no assigned coaches and no mid-week practices. 

> The training sessions will be held at the Kaiser Permanente Sports Village. All children will report to the area West of the AYSO Concession Building at field 5 and 6. For Spring of 2024 we will begin at 9 am. 

> The training session has 4 stages which are integrated in the session. Warm up, simple activities, more complex activities, play and cool off period. The activities are to develop fundamental motor skills, social interaction, hand-eye and foot-eye coordination in a playful, fun family environment.  The various play themes used at the weekly sessions makes it more fun for the players.

> The Jamboree program has a master coach with some assistants. The master coach oversees the training session. They explain and demonstrate the elements in the training session. Participation is necessary, so we encourage parents, grandparents, and siblings to get involved and participate with the child. It is the child's parent or family member who will serve as mentor to the child and assist in the drills and modules. The child looks at them as the most familiar and work with them until the time the child feels comfortable enough to  experiment on their own in the new environment on the soccer field.

> Each child should wear their uniform to the sessions. Bring a size 3 soccer ball, soccer cleats or tennis shoes, shin guards and water and snacks. In sessions players like to hold on to their ball. Write their name and Phone# on it so in case someone finds it there is a good chance to have it returned.

> The shoes must be safe for all players so no sharp edges or pointed knobs are permitted. Shins guards worn under the socks are required at all times while training and playing in these training and game sessions. Games emphasize fun while learning. No goalkeepers. No standings.

We are here for the kids! Your suggestions that can benefit all players in the program are welcome.
Any questions please contact our regional commissioner Julio Velez and/or our Jamboree coordinator Melisia Velez.
