Welcome to AYSO Region 190

rap gold

We are Sterling Heights soccer and have been providing quality youth soccer programs for over 35 years.  

We are more than a soccer league.  AYSO Region 190 is a soccer community, inspiring the best in its parents, volunteers and players, on and off the field, while creating friendships and lasting memories for all.

Our Team Keeps Losing - Now What?

The following was taken from AYSO's Hey Coach! Newsletter on the Now What? section.

“We’re now a month into the season, and my team is 0-4. I want to make sure they keep having fun and don’t focus on the final score, but I have noticed long faces and poor body language. Now What?”

Answer: This is an opportunity to employ Positive Coaching and shape the culture and perspective of younger athletes. Remain positive, and continue to encourage your team; make sure you point out how players are improving. Establish goals and objectives that gauge team improvement. Make it clear that losing a game does not equate to failure, and that there are many positives and learning opportunities that can be taken from a loss. We need to provide the perspective that winning isn’t everything, and that it’s important to learn how to face adversity. Players will take the lead from their coach and parents, so if those individuals aren’t making a big deal about the outcome of a game, odds are the kids won’t either! Let the players know that all you ask of them is to try their best, and continue to try again the next time.

Please allow me to introduce myself and give you a bit of background on my family. My name is Jenn Dalian. My daughter Alaina is playing in the AYSO 190 U10 league. Upon the start the the season my husband Shane Anderson and I were debating if we should enroll Alaina in soccer. Alaina has some challenges in the autism spectrum and also the sensory processing area. We were worried that she may not be up to the emotional and physical challenges of playing an organized sport. Alaina really had her heart set on playing so we figured we would let her try.

One of the many lessons our unique little girl has taught us is that barriers are meant to be broken. So we started soccer. We were instantly put at ease.
