AYSO Region 1079 Red Mountain Serving Mesa and Surrounding Areas

VIP (Very Important Person)

At AYSO 1079, we are committed to serving our community and players with disabilities.

Individuals who would not experience success on a regular soccer team are invited to join our VIP program for players with special needs. Our team is comprised of individuals age 5 to adult. We offer an alternative soccer experience aimed at having fun and making friends. Our schedule consists of 5 or so games scheduled during the fall season and a VIP tournament scheduled in early December. Each hour long session is filled with a variety of activities for players to choose from followed by a short modified game played with and against regular selected AYSO 1079 teams. 

Our program is directed by Emlyn Lydford (Ms. Emy) who is a Special Education Teacher within the Mesa Unified School District. Emlyn has her Masters in Rehabilitation Administration and has over 20 years experience serving individuals with mental, physical, and emotional challenges.  Please feel free to contact Emy at 602-320-8654 with any questions.

We invite you to join our team. 

Get active. Make friends. Have fun.
