The organization’s goals are to promote the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of the youth of Arizona through soccer.[1] The ASA/AYSA is a member of the United States Youth Soccer Association[2] and the United States Soccer Federation. They are also associated with Phoenix Rising FC Youth Soccer Club,[3] which was formed when Scottsdale Soccer, the Blackhawks and the Phoenix Rising FC Charities merged in May 2018.[4]
