AYSL Arizona Youth Sports Leagues AYSL Rip Off, Unorganized, Over Priced, Under Managed, Under Staffed, Not a good environment for your kids!!! Peoria Arizona
AYSL / Arizona Youth Sports Leagues in Peoria is the worst league I have ever dealt with!
A few months ago, my son came home with a flyer from his school and said he wanted to play flag football. After reviewing the flyer and visiting their website http://azyouthsportsleagues.com, I registered my son and paid $75.00 for 8 weeks of flag football. I registered him about 8 weeks prior to the season starting to ensure he got on a team as I know some leagues fill up fast. I also signed him up early in case the team's practices started a few weeks prior to and in preparation for the first game. I literally got no response from anyone at AYSL or their website saying, "Welcome" or "Thank you for joining" or anything whatsoever. After a few weeks went by I started to worry that I had been scammed by a fake organization/website, and now looking back, I wish I had. It would have been a better experience than what I have endured due to the Peoria - AYSL staff!
After looking up the website again and calling the Peoria location several times, I finally reached Scott Arsenault who said he was the Director of the league. He confirmed my son's registration had been received and that teams were being formed. He told me that I would be contacted shortly by the coach of the team that my son was assigned to. A couple more weeks went by and NOTHING! NO PHONE CALLS! NO EMAILS, NO TEXTS, NOTHING!
Then exactly one week prior to the league's FIRST scheduled game, I was contacted by Scott on Saturday afternoon asking about the box I had checked on the registration form regarding volunteering and coaching. He said they had a lot of "last minute registrations" and all of a sudden had enough kids to form another team. He asked if I would be interested in coaching. I said "Sure of course, I would be glad to help out." But then when I asked "Whose team would I be assisting with?", he replied, "Your Team. You would be the head coach." Scott told me that he would send me the parent contact list for my team by the end of Saturday. I had to send Scott an email on Sunday evening because I still had not received the parent list so he arranged for me to meet him the following morning (Monday) at 9:00 at AYSL - Peoria to get the information and practice equipment. Scott didn't show up until 9:45 am. Needless to say, I was late for work.
I should have known then that something was WRONG!!! If my son was registered 8-10 weeks ago and still wasn't assigned to a team yet, how is it that this is a " last minute" registration team? Now don't get me wrong here, I greatly accepted the offer and was so excited to spend this extra time with my son. I LOVE FOOTBALL, and I LOVE my KIDS and spending time with them, so I have no complaints there. Nor do I feel like I bit off more than I could chew taking this position as head coach. I understand football, have played many years of football and as a business owner, I have managed many different types of people. Using my experiences and skills and applying them to coaching was not difficult. I only wish it would have been with a much better, well equipped, more informative organization.
As a parent and coach with AYSL, these are the specific problems that I have had to contend with:
