San Carlos AYSO

History of San Carlos AYSO

In winter of 1969 there were 100 AYSO players scattered across Northern California.  AYSO came to San Carlos in 1974, with just a few teams, under Emmett MacCorkle.  In 1976, the San Carlos Region was chartered under the National Organization by Dick Knickerbocker and was recognized to operate within the city boundaries of the City of San Carlos.  Dick went on to serve as commissioner for seven years, and as a result of his dedication, our annual Knickerbocker Cup Tournament was named after him.

Bob Masters, for his outstanding contribution to youth soccer, was given the distinction of joining Dick Knickerbocker in the renaming of our annual tournament to the Knickerbocker-Masters Cup.  Bob served on the board for eight years, including three years as Regional Commissioner. 

With the help of hundreds of volunteers over the years, soccer in San Carlos has continued to grow.  The first few teams had to travel to neighboring cities in order to compete with other teams in AYSO.  Today, we have nive age divisions with five of them having enough teams to compete within our own region.  In 1991, for the first time, San Carlos had over 1,000 children in the program, and currently we have grown to approximately 1,500 kids and 175 teams!  We are the beneficiaries of the effort, skill, know-how, good will and wonderful positive attitudes of many people over the years; thanks to those who have worked so hard, we have a successful soccer program in San Carlos!
