AYSO is 100% Volunteer Driven
Our region needs your help!
AYSO is a 100% volunteer-run organization. All of our coaches, referees and administrators are volunteers. Over 220,000 parents, neighbors, relatives and friends nationally lend their time and talents so that each child gets a terrific AYSO experience.
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.
Volunteers are needed in the following positions:
Coaches are required to successfully complete the appropriate clinic to be a coach within the AYSO organization. Coaches will attend and run practice, create and implement age appropriate drills, communicate with the Division Managers, and develop their team to have fun and be successful. Our region reimburses any costs associated with clinics, although most are at no charge. Coaches are encouraged to take additional clinics so they are eligible to coach older divisions, All-Stars, and tournament teams.
An Assistant coach assists the head coach in running drills, attending practice, stepping in if the Coach in unable to attend a game or practice. Assistant coaches are also encouraged to successfully complete an appropriate clinic. Our region will reimburse any costs associated with the clinics.
Referees need to take a referee class and sign up for at least one game per week. Games are available online so the referee can sign up as his/her schedule permits. Each team needs to provide at least 2 referees. Referee participation is a key factor in the U10 and older divisions and their eligibility to play in playoffs. This is the perfect job for someone who wants to be involved, but cannot commit the time to coach or for a coach that wants to be more involved with their other children in AYSO.
