Become a Volunteer!

AYSO is a volunteer-driven organization. Without people willing to give their time to coach, referee, volunteer for board positions, there would be no soccer program. 

WE HATE TURNING KIDS AWAY, but we are limited to the number of kids we can accommodate by the number of coaches, referees, and board positions we have. AYSO National has set the maximum number of children that can be on a team. If you volunteer, your children are guaranteed a place to on a team as long as you volunteer during a season registration. After that, we can guarantee a place only for the child you would be coaching. Any other child would be placed at the top of the appropriate waiting list if there were no spots left on a team. When registering your child online, please make sure you fill out the volunteer portion and indicate what you are volunteering to do (i.e. -- coach, referee, board position, etc.)

If you are going to volunteer, please do so as early as possible since we need to have a good idea of the number of spots available for the kids depending on what role you are volunteering for.

Volunteer Information

Volunteer Information

  • There is no rule that the team parent must be a 'mom'. There have been plenty of team dads in recent years who have done a good job just as there have been plenty of female coaches who have excelled in what was primarily a male coach's role in the past
  • Do not let yourself become a babysitter at practices or games, or a taxi service for parents who cannot get their children to games or practices
  • In today's litigious society, you should never be alone with any child that is not your own. Always have a second adult on hand
  • Stay organized. Be sure to have a calendar available for team dates as parents will often call and ask for time and dates of games or practices. Each coach should have access to the calendar on their team page at It's simple to keep this calendar updated and refer to parents when necessary
  • If you are giving a hand-out to players at practice, write the first and last name of the player on top of the page. By doing so, you will be sure everyone receives a copy and there are no questions when a parent later complains that you did not give a hand-out to their child. At younger ages, it makes sense to put the hand-out into an envelope and place it directly in the parents' hands when possible
