AFC - AYSO Agreement

AFC Members,

Over the last year representatives of Albany FC have been working with the AYSO Region 870 Board of Directors to forge a working relationship that would be beneficial for both organizations and raise the overall level of soccer in the Albany area. The goal of the working relationship was to create a seamless system for developing soccer players at the level that is appropriate for each individual player. In the agreement, players in the Albany area will begin their soccer experience with AYSO in the U6-U10 ages with the support of AFC coaches. Players who show potential at these ages, and have the desire to develop at a higher level, would begin attending AYSO Progressive practices on Fridays. AFC coaches will be in attendance along with a few representative AFC players. This will give the players and parents a chance to sample the AFC experience and will help AFC coaches identify potential players who should attend our tryouts. AFC will continue to provide a competitive soccer experience for players from ages U10-U18. We have hired a Director of Coaching, Santiago Landazuri, who will be implementing a new player development model beginning with our 2013 Tryouts. We are excited for the coming year and the positive changes that are continuing to happen with our club as we transform into the top club in the Albany area! See the attached flyer and comparison chart that has been sent out to all area schools.
