North American Adult Soccer Association was developed to give our AYSO players turning 19, and adult AYSO volunteers of any age, a place to keep playing soccer in a safe, fair and fun environment in accord with our AYSO principles.  There are hundreds of thousands of adults playing soccer in North America and NAASA offers a quality program with registration support.

 

 HEALTH BENEFITS OF ADULT SOCCER

Adult soccer is not only a way to reconnect with friends and indulge in your favorite sport, but it’s also a fantastic way to stay healthy while getting older. The NYTimes.com reported several health benefits specific to adult soccer – especially in women – and found that those benefits were long term.

“Playing soccer not only led to better balance and improved muscle strength, but the sport also increased a woman’s bone mineral density by an average of 2 to 3 percent,” says New York Times writer Tara Parker-Pope. “The gains were greater among the women who had played soccer instead of running.”

And, the same goes for the men. “Other studies … have shown similar heart and bone benefits in male soccer players. One study looked at muscle function and balance in a group of 65- to 75-year-old men who played recreational soccer most of their lives,” says Tara.

“In a one-leg balance test, the older soccer players performed just as well as 30-year-old men. Older men who weren’t trained in soccer had twice as many falls during the balance test as their soccer-playing peers.”

The results are in. For a better life, keep on playing! Read the article in its entirety here.
