The Asheville Buncombe Youth Soccer Association (ABYSA) is a 501( c ) 3 not-for-profit organization, providing children and families in Western North Carolina with both recreational and competitive soccer programs. We provide over $70,000 per year in need-based financial assistance to players who otherwise would not have access to our programs, and we also provide outreach programming—free of charge—to groups of youth who are underserved by sports organizations in our community. As a not-for-profit recognized by the IRS, donations to ABYSA are fully tax deductible. For information about how your donation can help ABYSA reach deeper into our community or to make a donation, contact Kathy Jackson at
