AYSO REGION 85 DOG POLICY



Even though city parks allow leashed dogs, they are not allowed at AYSO practices or games.

With kids running around and other activity at AYSO events, the chances are very high that pets will be excitable and may cause injury. In addition, some children have a fear of dogs.

Thank you in advance for helping to keep AYSO soccer a fun event for all.
