Rivertowns AYSO (Region 324 New York)

Volunteer for AYSO!

We are hoping to return to our normal mode of operation for our Rivertowns AYSO Core Program (recreational soccer) in Fall 2021 and Spring 2022. To do so, we need volunteers! In organizations like AYSO and the Little League, volunteers are the lifeblood of the programs. Each age level needs its own parent volunteers to make that age level the best it can be. Training is provided. Please do your part help bring the joy of soccer to kids in our community!
