What is AYSO?
AYSO is a volunteer-run organization. Coaches, referees and administrators are ALL volunteers. Yep, every single last person you see helping is a volunteer from the top to the bottom.  Nationwide, over 220,000 parents, neighbors, relatives and friends lend their time and talents so that each child gets a terrific AYSO experience.  AYSO's volunteer foundation ensures that it's all about what's good for kids. It also makes AYSO very affordable. AYSO operates in a business manner, but volunteers ensure its "profits" are happy, healthy kids playing a sport they can enjoy for life.  AYSO has developed special training that helps parents who may have little or no soccer experience quickly gain the age-appropriate knowledge and skills they need to be effective coaches and referees. It also has unique administrative and management training. This ensures that each community program:  

  • Abides by the AYSO philosophies
  • Offers a great AYSO experience
  • Continues to grow, offering the AYSO opportunity to more children

It only takes a few hours to become qualified as an introductory-level coach or referee. But if you're not able to commit even that much time, there are many small jobs you can help with. Even a couple of hours each season are an important contribution to your team and Region!  AYSO training doesn't stop as long as you're having fun. Referees, coaches and administrators have clinics, workshops and other advanced training available to advance their skills. 

Want to know more about AYSO?  Check out the National AYSO website at:  ayso.org.



Act as if what you do makes a difference.  It does!

 

How do I become a volunteer?  It's easy

 

Step 1:  Online Application

AYSO National's chose a new registration process.  Everyone must use the new system to sign up this year.  

Click button for a quick redirect:  This button takes you to the same place as hitting the "Login" button on the home screen top right corner.  See example in the photo below.

Note:  Since this is our first year of using this system, everyone needs to fill out the volunteer application.  It will give you an opportunity to click "Returning Volunteer".
Note:  If you have signed up your child to play soccer on this new site, you already have an account.  Sign into that account.  Skip to "Login" step.

Try using a browser besides Safari. We have heard this one can cause glitches. Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer tend to work better.  

Click on "Login":  




If you haven'nt created an account yet, click on "Create Account":


Or if you have already created your account (this is the same account you use to register to your player) "Sign in":






Click on "Volunteer": 




Then click on "Find Volunteer Roles"



Then Click on "Select" (see arrow 1) and "View Roles"  (see arrow 2).




Click on the one in the middle only.  Follow directions from there.  (Thanks for volunteering).  Note:  Volunteer positions are alphabetized.  You will find Coach under "Head Coach".






Upon completion of your online volunteer application, every volunteer applicant is immediately background checked so that we may have a safe group of volunteers working with all of our children.

Volunteers are paid in six figures...S-M-I-L-E-S.

       
  • Please print 1 copy of your Volunteer Application.  (Note:  You have to sign up as a volunteer each fiscal year.  Our fiscal year is August 1 - July 31).
  • If you get stuck, no worries, simply call 866-253-3303 to get the computer help desk.
  • Write down your AYSO ID #.  You will need it for your online training. 


Volunteers don't get paid, not because their worthless, but because they're priceless!


Step 2 - ID Check

Next step is your ID check.  We have several options to make it easy for you to get your ID checked.  Bring your printed copy of your volunteer application with you to your ID check.

 You can bring your Volunteer Application to one of the Registration Events where we sign up the kids for soccer.
 We also have several trained, certified CVPA's at your service to make it easy to get your ID completed.  Simply email them to request an ID check.    They are:

What is Safe Haven Training?

Safe Haven is a program designed to address a growing need for child and volunteer protection.
Child Protection

There are four elements in the Safe Haven intervention cycle. These are intended to stop child abuse and its agents before they get into the program

  • Create Policies
  • Screen Volunteers
  • Train Volunteers
  • Promote Education and Awareness

AYSO's Safe Haven Program for Parents


Volunteer Protection Act of 1997

This law grants immunity form certain types of prosecution for volunteers who meet its requirements. In order to receive full protection under the law, AYSO volunteers need three things.

  • They must be properly trained and certified.
  • They must be performing duties as laid out in a position description.
  • They must act within the scope of AYSO's Policies, Procedures, and Guidelines.


Kindess is like a boomerang, it always returns.

AYSO Certification

AYSO's goal is to provide certification training for all its volunteers. Certification offers the hope that every AYSO child will be treated with understanding, compassion, and respect.
