Adult Soccer

AYSO Adult Soccer 

AYSO Adult Soccer encourages everyone age 18 and older regardless of number of players on a team, or skill level, to get out and play! Get creative with how you play. Whether it's a game of 3v3, pick-up soccer, or futsal, AYSO Adult Soccer helps you get out, get fit, and have a good time with your community. Check with your region or a region near you to see if they offer AYSO Adult Soccer!

Here are some great examples of the type of soccer you can play within your community:


The best way to start a new program! Coordinate a time and place for everyone to show up, create teams, and get them playing. It's as easy as that! Your members will determine the format in which you will play. Do you have enough time to play the full field? Keep in mind to have a few subs for those weary legs. If not, you may want to consider bringing in the goals to the top of the penalty box and cut the field down to a more manageable size. 


A great way to play a fast-paced, fun game of soccer. This game requires very little space and a minimum number of players to play. Typical field sizes are around 30 x 20 yards, but work with the space you have. No need to mark a field out, just put up small pop-up goals on either end of the box, throw out the ball and play!

6v6 & 7v7

This is an extremely popular way for adults to play soccer in a fun, recreational way. Playing 6v6 and 7v7 maximized field space by playing across the width of a full-sized field. If numbers permit, you can fit three of these width-oriented fields on one full-size field, allowing upwards of 40 people to play at one time. Play short 25-minute halves with a rest in between. There are two variations of this game you can play on this size of a field. If you have players who are willing to be goalkeepers, pull out the smaller 10U-size goals and shoot away. Alternatively, you can play with small pop-up goals, no goalkeepers, and play more of a passing, possession type game. Either one of these variations are great fun and hugely enjoyable for players of all skill levels!


Play the game in its purest form, full field, 11v11. Some things to be mindful of when playing this way:

  • Make sure that you have enough subs to keep the game moving and fun for all
  • Rotate substitutions often
  • Switch out your player positions; not everyone dreams of growing up to be a left full back. Let's face it, everyone wants to score once in a while
