Students in participating Middle Schools can get PE credit for playing soccer through AYSO certified soccer teams. Those players who are registered through AYSO soccer and participate in at least 200 minutes per week of physical activity can sign up and waive the requirement to have daytime PE. In general, your middle schooler would want to do this in order to make time for other class time electives.
The time requirements can be met through participation in the team’s weekly practice and Monday night skills training. This is a great opportunity to learn a new skill, play a fun and enjoyable sport and get some great exercise!
In order to apply, print out the .pdf document below, complete the student’s portion of the form, obtain the appropriate signatures, and then submit it to your school.
