U5 Jamboree

Welcome to the AYSO Region 91 U5 Jamboree program!  This program is designed to provide a positive introductory soccer experience to our youngest of players in a "pressure free" environment.  At this age, players should be exposed to soccer by participating in simple, fun activities and games that require little to no practice and a minimal time commitment.

This program allows players to discover the game for themselves, while parents are given a soccer foundation on which to build and grow into future AYSO coaches, referees and administrators.

The AYSO U5 Jamboree program is not considered a coaching program. It is a program that is designated to be facilitated by a qualified AYSO Master Coach. The AYSO National Coaching Commission supports this program predicated on the basis that the guidelines provided within the U5 Master Coach Manual are followed and that all decisions regarding the program are made in the best interest of the players.


Jamboree Parent with Player is the combination of two different formats that, put together, provide the best possible introduction to soccer for our youngest players.  In AYSO soccer, a jamboree means that teams are formed on a weekly basis depending on how many players attend a given session.  Parent with Player refers to the concept that each player will have a parent (or other adult) working with them on the field.

A “Master Coach” will lead each session.  The Master Coach will introduce a game/activity that will practice a certain skill or part of the game using explanation and demonstration.  Each pair (player/parent) will then attempt the activity while the Master Coach circles between pairs providing specific help or suggestions so that the activities are performed as intended.  After a suitable amount of time, the Master Coach will bring the players and parents back together as a group and recap what they have done, introducing the next game/activity.

Each Jamboree Parent with Player session will end with a 20 minute short-sided game (3 v 3).  Details regarding the game are explained later.  Most importantly, allow the players to play without coaching or teaching them as this experience is designed to expose them to soccer, not to begin developing them.  The two goals of the program are to allow the players to enjoy the activities and to let the game be the teacher.
