The beginning

THE BEGINNING

Mike Michalski is best known as the founder of the AYSO National Games. After running an annual tournament in Southern California for a number of years, he decided to invite AYSO players from all over the U.S. to one location to play in a tournament. That tournament has become the AYSO National Games.
