Volunteer Info

Can I register as a volunteer?

Yes. Our region would not work without the help of our volunteers! Volunteer roles for teams include Head Coach, Assistant Coach and Team Manager. Other volunteer roles include referees, division coordinators, field maintenance, concession help, and board positions. AYSO has developed special training that helps parents who may have little or no soccer experience to quickly gain the age-appropriate knowledge and skills they need to be effective coaches and referees. You must register as a volunteer in order to be assigned a position.

I registered last year, do I need to re-register this season?

Yes, you need to register for each season.

Why should I coach in AYSO?

It's a chance to spend quality time with your child and it's fun. It's a great break from work. It makes you feel good. It's a great way to give back to the community.

The rewards come in the form of helping kids have fun at a game or practice, and contributing to their individual skills and teamwork. There is also a great sense of accomplishment when you reach the end of a season, look back and see how far the team has come.

I don’t know anything about soccer. Can I still help coach?

Yes! AYSO provides training and materials. Being a coach involves skills you probably already have in addition to specific soccer knowledge. If you are uncertain, try being an assistant coach. Your Region's Coach Administrator will be happy to try to match you up with somebody with a little more experience.

What is Safe Haven?

To ensure the safety of both children and volunteers, each volunteer is required to take a short online training session called Safe Haven™. It focuses on safety and appropriate behavior with children as well as first aid and other on-field issues. A background check is also required for each volunteer.

How are volunteers screened?

Since January 1, 2001, all AYSO Regions, Areas, and Sections are required to comply with the AYSO policy on criminal background checks. Any person wishing to volunteer in AYSO is subject to a criminal background check. Any person wishing to volunteer in AYSO must complete an AYSO volunteer application form each year. The application form includes a Criminal Background Check Release. All requested information must be provided by the applicant, including Social Security number, driver's license number (or other state issued photo I.D. if the applicant does not drive) and date of birth.
