It's About What's Good For The Kids

AYSO's volunteer foundation ensures that it's all about what's good for kids. It also makes AYSO very affordable. Every coach, referee, and administrator in our region is a volunteer. Nationwide, over 125,000 parents, neighbors, relatives and friends lend their time and talents so that each child gets a terrific AYSO experience. 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.


Two-Part Volunteer Sign Up - New for Fall 2017

Part One: Volunteer Sign up

During the process of signing up of your child for one of our programs, you will be asked to select either a specific volunteer role, or elect to have us help find you a role that matches your skills, talents, interests and availability. Only "position specific," not private personal information will be collected during player registration. The information collected during that process just indicates your volunteer position preference, notes which division you want to support, and includes basic contact information that will be helpful once teams are formed.

Part Two: Volunteer Verification

In order to ensure the safety of all of the members of our Region 266 Family, we do background checks on all of our volunteers. Background checks are done annually and ensure that we doing everything possible to never place our kids' well-being at risk.  Any volunteer who is going to be directly working with our youth players or possibly come in contact with their personal information will have passed a comprehensive background check and will be required to complete AYSO Safe Haven® training.
