The Official American Youth Soccer Organization Handbook Sep 25, 2005
This book gives one all that is needed to know about AYSO and the game of soccer. The emphasis is on the youth playing the game. The officials, parents and coaches are there to make the game "fun, fair and safe" for the kids, not to live vicariously through the kids. Good coverage of the game, the laws of the game and all that AYSO is about.
