Youth Soccer returns to Fairfax for practice, games

PLAYERS run drills during practice at Fairfax High School.

A local chapter of the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) is officially up and running. For AYSO Region 78, practice and (notably) games commenced in mid-September at Fairfax High School.

While a smaller operation took place last fall with practices only, the full-scale opening is a welcome affair for many young players in our area.

“We are starting a little later this year as Los Angeles Unified School District office that permits the use of fields, closed since March 2020, just re-opened,” explained Region 78 league commissioner Kurt Muller. “We also had to make some adjustments to COVID protocol, so things just took a little while to get off the ground. Thankfully, our families have been patient, as they know this is a volunteer-driven community effort.”

While player and volunteer numbers are down from 2019, the league has a registration of about 600 players and 100 volunteers.
“Our boys’ and girls’ teams have started practicing, and they are undoubtedly ready to play and make up for lost time on the pitch,” said Muller.
