Dear North Valley 174 Soccer Family,
Opening day of our soccer season is fast approaching. It is on Saturday, September 12, 2015. I along with all of our wonderful Board and many volunteers are looking forward to another great season with your soccer family at Region 174.
As many of you know, the many great programs of AYSO, the National youth soccer organization, are fueled by the many efforts and countless hours of volunteers. Without this support our program would not thrive and be as successful as it is in providing a positive, encouraging and safe environment in which our children thrive.
At this point we are in need of coaches for a handful of our divisions in both genders. I am reaching out with the hope that you will step up and consider becoming a coach for the division in which your child will participate. We need coaches in the following divisions; BOYS – U06, U07, U10, U12; GIRLS – U06, U12, U14; COED U16/19.
Team practices are one day during the week and games are on Saturday.
If you have no experience do not fret. We will provide all the necessary training and tools to get you ready and certified. The coach training session is fast approaching. It will be held at our soccer facility on Friday, August 28 (2 hours in the late afternoon) and continues on Saturday, August 29 (8:00 – 2:00).
If coaches are not identified as soon as possible those teams are in jeopardy of not participating in the coming Fall 2015 season. So please become a coach and make your child’s experience within our soccer family rewarding, memorable, and exciting, but most important……FUN.
I encourage you to reach out to our Coach Coordinator, Jairo Osorio, as soon as possible to get your juices flowing. He can be reached by email at email@example.com or by phone at 310-614-1842.
Thank you in advance for all your support as we look forward to yet another wonderful Fall season.

Dear AYSO 174 Family,
The 50th Anniversary AYSO National Games came and went. They took place in Torrance and Riverside, California in July. On behalf of our entire soccer family I would like to Congratulate all of the players and families of the six teams who attended these week long events. All the players represented 174 with a high level of Sportsmanship and played their hearts out in light of the hot days. The teams played anywhere from 7 – 10 games in a period of 5 continuous days.
Four of the teams made it to the final days of the event and came home with medals; 3 First Place and 1 Third Place.
Congratulations to all who participated and attended these exciting games. They are all WINNERS!
Region 174 u14 Boys All Stars won the AYSO California State Championship on March 16, 2014 in Bakersfield, CA. The team won their semi final match against a Section 11 team from North Park, CA (Region 785). The score of the match was 3 – 2.
The Championship match was against another Section 11 team from Fountain Valley, CA (Region 5). The final score was 3 – 1.
The team is coached by Daniel Diaz and Steve Ortiz. This is the second time in 2 years that Region 174 has had a team win a State Championship. Last year, the u14 Girls All Star team won the California AYSO State Championship.
Congratulations to the players on the team for the outstanding team work and winning attitude.
From Councilperson Englander’s December 14, 2012 E-News
At the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) Board meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 11, we secured the final approval for a 45 year lease agreement between MWD, Department of Water and Power (DWP), and the Granada Hills Youth Recreation Center.
We worked for 10 years to find a way to ensure that the thousands of boys and girls from our community could continue to use the Granada Hills ball fields for generations to come. This is more than simply a soccer field – generations of youth in our community have grown up playing soccer and baseball at this facility, learning the values of sportsmanship, community involvement and team work. Many families have fond memories from years of spending Saturdays and Sundays watching their children play soccer and baseball.
10 years ago, MWD needed to expand their water filtration operations and needed the space where the ball fields were located, and there was no suitable alternative location. It was possible that our community would have lost this cherished resource. Our office, DWP, MWD and the Mayor’s office were able to find a mutually beneficial solution that provided a location to MWD for their operations on City property, and we secured the 45-year lease so that we could keep the ball fields at the current location in Granada Hills.
