Volunteers Positions to Suit Everyone


Where do I Fit In?

We always need volunteers at the team level, division level and at the regional level. Take a look at our Volunteer Positions page, select the task that suits you and volunteer! We have the training and support you need to have a great time enjoying soccer with your child. Some of the positions involve getting out in the fresh air, and they are marked "Active." Other equally important tasks can be done from the comfort of home; they are marked "Administrative." Each position also includes an estimate of the time commitment and training required. If you'd like to help out, but you don't see a position that's right for you, contact the Volunteer Coordinator ([email protected]), and they'll help you find a way to contribute.


What Are Volunteers?

A Coach, a Referee, a Registrar, a fundraiser, a field marker, a publicist, a Treasurer - many people, all contributing their time and efforts to make AYSO a great program for our soccer-playing kids.


Why does AYSO need volunteers?

AYSO needs volunteers because people power runs AYSO. Volunteers strengthen AYSO by giving their time and energy, their ideas and ideals. Volunteers make AYSO happen.


Who can be an AYSO volunteer?

Almost anyone can volunteer. Moms, dads, sisters, brothers, grandparents, even friends. We need women and men, young, middle-aged and "young at heart" folks. AYSO wants volunteers who want to help make our soccer program a fun experience for kids. Everyone plays in AYSO, and everyone has something special to contribute to the program.


Volunteers:

  • They contribute a special skill or ability.
  • They contribute their time.
  • They contribute their energy.
  • They contribute themselves.

What do AYSO volunteers do?

  • They do what is needed to make the program work.

  • They referee games and write checks.
  • They line the field and work in the snack bar.
  • They put up goals and take down nets.
  • They take registrations and raise funds.
  • They bandage knees and schedule games.
  • They put up posters and take pictures.
  • They buy equipment and go to meetings.

How do AYSO volunteers help themselves?

AYSO volunteers gain satisfaction and growth from their experiences. They make new friends. They learn new skills. They develop creativity. They investigate new careers. They enrich their lives.


Volunteer Screening

All persons, who wish to volunteer, must fill out a confidential volunteer application form. Volunteers are subject to screening processes in accordance with applicable law and AYSO’s Safe Haven Program and Child Protection Policy.


Youth Volunteers

AYSO Region 161 welcomes youth volunteers, who must submit youth volunteer applications and attend training courses for their certifications, just like the adults do. AYSO National Policy prohibits children under 18 from serving as team Coaches.  

How do I become an AYSO volunteer?

It's easy. Talk to your child's Coach, talk to our Regional Commissioner or any of the Region's board members. They will be most helpful - and happy - to find the right job for you. You can also send us an email at [email protected]
