AYSO has rebranded its renowned VIP Program… to EPIC, standing for Everyone Plays In our Community.

Launched in 1991, AYSO’s VIP Program was established to give players with intellectual and physical challenges the opportunity to play and enjoy the beautiful game.

The EPIC rebrand is designed to remind AYSO members and the surrounding community that AYSO is a place that everyone can play, no matter your ability. We are so excited to also have one of our longstanding partners, Augusta Sportswear, be a part of this rebrand in supporting existing and new programs with resources, from free uniforms for players and buddies, grants for equipment and marketing collateral to help spread the word.


Depending on the size of your Region, as noted below, you can apply for funds up to the max amount for your size. Funds can be used for scholarships, marketing supplies, equipment, etc.

  • Micro Regions (300 players or less): $500
  • Small/Medium Regions (301-1,499 players): $750
  • Large Regions (1,500+ players): $1,000

Uniforms and Buddy shirts will be provided in addition to the grant if requested.

A marketing bundle will be provided for current and new programs to include a customizable banner, yard sign, digital flyers and social media posts. Any additional marketing collateral will be available for purchase on the AYSO Marketing Toolkit.
