AYSO is a volunteer organization. In our region we have the following volunteer categories:
|Team Volunteers||<2 hours total for a season|
|Referees||1-4 hours per week during season|
|Coaches & Assistant Coaches||2-8 hours per week during season|
|Regional Board||1-4 hours per week before and/or during season|
We strongly encourage all parents to volunteer at both the team level and region/league level so we can deliver a high quality soccer program to your kids. Volunteering on a team is extremely easy. Volunteering as a Referee, Coach, or on our Board is rewarding and has the most impact. We provide free high quality training for all our volunteers. Refereeing, Coaching, and serving on the Board can also help you professionally.
A comprehensive set of all volunteer position descriptions can be found on the National AYSO web site at: http://www.ayso.org/resources/volunteer_position_descriptions.aspx
We use the secure AYSO National online registration system called eAYSO to register all coaches, referees, and board members. This is not required for team-level vounteers. You must fill out an online form, including social security number (SSN), driver's license, and references. Your SSN and driver's license are kept very secure and go directly to the National organization for background checks (they cannot be seen by any local volunteers). The printed forms totally obscure your SSN and show only 4 digits of your driver's license.
At registration, we verify your driver's license number using the 4 digits. You must be present for this process. Your volunteer registration can only be accepted and completed if submitted by you.
Remember, volunteers are covered by AYSO insurance only if they are registered and screened. AND volunteers are protected by the US Volunteer Protection Act only if they have been properly trained.
To register, there are three easy steps:
