Why is this Important?

Why is this important?  Because our Blue Sombrero system can only assign volunteer roles to you if you directly apply for them

For example: If you registered as an assistant coach but decided at orientation to be the Team Parent, you must log into Blue Sombrero and update your volunteer application to reflect your role as Team Parent. If you do not, you cannot be allocated to the team and will not have the ability to manage the team site. 

This must be done as soon as possible, otherwise you will not have administrative access on your team site.  You will be removed from the position if this is not done by the first game day!

Safety First

AYSO puts your child’s safety above all else. AYSO’s Safe Haven program is designed to address the need for child and volunteer protection by:

  • Screening and registering all AYSO volunteers
  • Requiring training and certification
  • Providing specific child and volunteer protection policies and guidelines
  • Promoting safety and injury prevention

Our volunteers are also asked to complete Safe Haven courses and job-specific training in order to become certified. AYSO in-person and online training focuses on the best ways to work with children and important safety protocols.

Kids Zone® is a dynamic program designed to eliminate negative sideline behavior. Kids Zone buttons and signs are distributed via your Region and displayed at games and practices. Parents asked to sign the Kids Zone Pledge promising to behave within the guidelines of the program.
