Region 13 is proud to welcome children of all abilities. This last weekend showed that the fall league is a way to play a team sport for the first time, at any age, and also a platform for developing strong athletes. Here are the results from the Area 1C All-Stars.

Area (middle level): 1st place G10-Agapie, B10-Singh, G12-Wierman. 3rd place B12-Powers

Region: 1st place G10-Stieg, B10-Rosebraugh. 3rd & 4th B12-Lane & B12-Nicely (went to KFTPM), 4th G12-Wolfson (also went to KFTPM)

The Section (highest level) teams went to the Section 1 tournament, playing with teams from all over LA & Riverside counties. G10-Moran, B10-Wehbe, and G12-Bailey won 2nd place in their divisions, and B12-Rao 3rd. In case you were wondering, our new rival is Manhattan Beach AYSO.

Message from the commissioner

It takes a village!

First, please join me in thanking Taj Chiu for her service to Region 13, most recently as Regional Commissioner, and in too many roles to list before that. Thank you, Taj!

As I take over the reins of Regional Commissioner, I’ve sometimes thought, “What have I gotten myself into?” It’s also given me pause and a chance to reflect on all the people who I’ve met in AYSO, many who have worked tirelessly on the field or behind the scenes – all to make it possible for our kids to play soccer.

And I’ve come to the conclusion that what these volunteers are doing – whether they realize it or not – is to help build a community. A community of soccer players, yes, and also of parents, caregivers, uncles, aunts, grandparents, and friends, all building a community that values simple things like children having a positive experience.

It takes work to make a community better, and the more that everyone contributes positively to our ‘village,’ the better that it becomes. All of us have demands on our time – work, caring for others, etc. – so every little bit helps.

So I’d like to challenge you to help contribute to our community by volunteering. Soon (in May), you'll be invited to register your kids for the next fall soccer league. This will also be your chance to pitch in so that the children can play soccer. If you're already volunteering, thank you! If you're not, well, please consider it. The kids always need coaches and referees, and AYSO offers many other ways to contribute!

See you on the field!

Terry Takahashi
Your Volunteer Commissioner, Coach, and Soccer Dad
