American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.


PHMSA offers a variety of programs for all ages and skill levels.  Players follow a player development pathway that starts with Playground and Schoolyard, and then moves on to Fall Core, Spring Select, Spring Academy, Fall Select, and ultimately AYSO United East Bay.  Players that age out of our youth programs then have the ability to play in our AYSO Adult Soccer program. 

All of our programs follow the AYSO 6 philosophies:
Everyone Plays
Balanced Teams
Open Registration
Positive Coaching
Good Sportsmanship
Player Development
