As an organization built upon the dedication and hard work of volunteers across the country, AYSO is very proud of our volunteer-based roots. Since April is National Volunteer Month, we’re celebrating our large, diverse organization by celebrating one AYSO volunteer a day.
Here are just a few of our volunteers that have been nominated by fellow AYSO volunteers so far this month:
Alex from Region 304 who has dedicated the past few years of his life making efforts to improve the referee programs in his area through training other referees and offering assistance whenever needed. Even after stepping down as referee administrator, Alex is always willing to accept phone calls and offer advice to new referee administrators. As described from an AYSO parent, Alex is “the definition of an AYSO volunteer.”
AYSO volunteers Rose and Sean, pictured above, are both from Region 345. Rose is the current Regional Commissioner of Region 345 and has dedicated twenty plus years to volunteering for AYSO. Rose has spent countless hours making sure that AYSO’s Six Philosophies are embodied by each and every player in the region as well as the volunteers. Rose also makes sure that each AYSO parent feels satisfied by their AYSO experience.
Sean is a volunteer coach for 18U that focuses on every aspect of player development—both on the soccer field and in the classroom. As another volunteer states, “We are fortunate to have volunteers like Sean!”
Nora also from Region 345 goes above and beyond for the AYSO players in her Region. Not only does Nora serve as the Playground Leader, she also holds the position of assistant Commissioner, Treasurer, Parent Orientation Leader, Referee Recruitment, and much more. Nora is a true asset to Region 345 and her fellow volunteers and AYSO families appreciate her efforts very, very much.
For the past several years, Peter is a volunteer coach and Referee Administrator from Region 544. Peter is dedicated to his volunteer duties and is described as always putting the extra effort to conduct a great program for both his fellow AYSO volunteers and players.
