The Aurora Youth Soccer Club's Competitive (Rep) program dates back to the late 1960's with teams of young teenage boys traveling to other towns and districts to compete in regular league play. As youth soccer began to grow and develop in, what is now York Region, clubs and leagues started to differentiate themselves into various classes and levels of soccer. House Leagues, All-Star, Select, Traveling and Rep teams started to form and leagues started to cater to specific playing levels.

Today, our competitive teams compete in leagues, tournaments and exhibition games throughout Ontario, across the country and abroad. We are proud of our Stingers and their rich history within our Club.

In 1993 the Aurora Youth Soccer Club adopted the nick-name Stingers and the colours GOLD, BLACK and WHITE as its official colours.


  • To promote a fun & caring atmosphere in which young players may fulfill their playing potential.
  • To develop top players within the ethical guidelines of Fair Play & Sportsmanship
  • To develop & promote soccer education within Aurora & the wider community.
  • To produce top quality players capable of moving on to higher levels of play beyond the AYSC – scholarships, semi-professional & professional levels.

The interests of the ‘Club’ & the ‘Team’ can be best served by focusing our attention on the ‘Player’. The complete player is made up of a careful blend of technical, physical, emotional & mental skills. Competitive & championship calibre teams are littered with players who have the right blend – what we call ‘The Right Stuff’.

We believe that our philosophy will allow us to produce competitive teams via a player-oriented approach. Results are not all-important as they only tell part of the story. Over the long haul, the development of the player is paramount.
