The AYSO 232 Youth Mentorship Program is a soccer training program for youth enthusiasts between 11 and 18 years old in Verde Valley Region.

To be eligible to participate in the AYSO 232 Youth Mentorship Program, the mentor must be between the ages of 11-17 years old, have a passion for soccer, and at least 3 years of soccer experience.  All participants must complete the SafeHaven and Concussion Awareness Classes on the AYSOU area of the website.  (Located in the Volunteer Screen of your account)

3. Training Curriculum

The training curriculum will be designed by trained coaching staff and will include a range of technical skills including dribbling, passing, shooting, defending, and game tactics. Mentors will also be trained on how to effectively mentor and interact with mentees.
