September 6th is Opening Day!

The long awaited day is here! It is time put on the uniform and shin guards, lace up the cleats, make sure the whistle is working, and head out to the soccer fields of Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach! Whether you are brand new to AYSO Region 18 or a returning veteran – nothing beats the excitement of Opening Day! This particular Opening Day is made even more special and memorable as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of this amazing all volunteer organization – AYSO!

As part of our Opening Day festivities, several of our local sponsors – Johnny Rockets, Round Table Pizza, and Baby G’s will be dishing up some of our favorites at several field locations to hungry AYSO soccer players and referees. Round Table Pizza will be at Mira Costa High School, Johnny Rockets will be at Marine Avenue Park and Marine Avenue Sports Complex and Baby G’s Ice Cream will be at Marine Avenue Sports Complex.

On behalf of the entire Region 18 AYSO Board, I extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to all of our volunteers that make this happen and welcome you to the Fall 2014 season – where memories will be made!

Yours in Soccer,

Andrew Lelchuk
Regional Commissioner
AYSO Region 18
