Review for American Youth Soccer Organization, Hawthorne, CA, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

While most of the comments by the other reviewers are basically accurate with regards to the actual local programs, the organization as a non-profit leaves something to be desired. Executive salaries are too high when measured against budget and the board of directors has long been plagued with micromanaging the organization. The fact that over the past ten years or so the organization has gone through five or six executive directors shows the fickle nature of leadership.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending national section conferences, national board meetings and having my children in the program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Restructure how the board is elected, institute term limits for presidents, institute board member training, etc.), require board members to contribute financially, restructure executive salaries.
