S. 2, Ep. 1, AYSES 91 Alumni, The First Graduation Class of AYSES, The Pioneers, part 1
In the beginning, the AYSES 91 class had no previous path to follow or to aspire to. This was the first AYSES team to finish through all the years of youth soccer, from pre-select, to select soccer ages 10-18 years old. The AYSES model was built on a model that was not present at the time. So we would have to create our own blue print. The players in this interview are a few of the pioneers that made AYSES what it is today. A team such few resources to their name. A team that in the early stages had to train on baseball fields. This episodes main focus is on the early ages of youoth soccer from 7 to 10 years old.
