2022 AYSO EXPO AGENDA
These past years have been incredibly challenging. Restrictions placed on sporting
activities due to COVID-19 and its variants have made it extremely difficult to offer youth soccer
programs. However, many of you have adapted and found ways to provide soccer programs for
young players. It has been impressive how each Region has found unique ways to deal with the
constraints and conform to the local authorities' requirements for restarting play.
It is good to finally get back together in person. It is time to revitalize the relationships we have
developed over the years. The forced isolation caused by COVID has exposed an important function
of the Expo, networking! So, come out to the Expo and meet face to face with all those you have
been Zooming or telephoning. You will be able to interact with Mike Karon, AYSO National
President, Scott Snyder, Director of Sports and Development, Yvonne Lara, Director of Marketing
and Communications, and other National Office personnel.
In addition to the fantastic networking opportunities, the workshops we have this year are impressive.
The Section team has been working hard over the last year to develop new workshops and update
some of our favorites. For the very first time, the Section will be offering Regional Commissioner
and Area Director Training! That’s right, no more traveling to California for training, we will hold it
right here at our Expo. Karen Mihara, Programs and Education Manager will be at the Expo to
facilitate the training.
Thank you for your dedication to AYSO and for participating in the 2022 Section 3 EXPO!
I look forward to seeing all of you!!
Sincerely your fellow volunteer,
Mark R. Schmalz
Section 3 Director
