Youth Volunteer Opportunities....

In addition to participating as a player, any youth in the area are also welcome to participate as youth volunteers.  There are several opportunities open to our youth volunteers - and plenty of training available to make them comfortable with their role.  Players giving back to the region is a big reason why we are so successful in teaching sportsmanship and values.

Regardless of which role you choose to volunteer in, your parents MUST register you as a youth volunteer.  You will need to re-register every spring for the upcoming season, just as you do as a player.  Any training or certification classes that you receive, however, will stay with you for life.  In addition, the region WILL acknowledge or sign off on any volunteer hours (for NHS, Eagle Scouts, etc).

  • Youth Assistant Coach:  Youth volunteer must be at least age 10, and at least two divisions older than the division they are assisting with.  Player must be a registered youth volunteer, accepted by the region as a volunteer, and must complete all required coach certification training.  Youth assistant coaches MAY NOT be left in charge of a practice, or run any portion of a practice independently.  Youth Assistant Coaches may assist an adult certified coach with drills, demonstrate technique, and practice with the team.  If you are interested in becoming a Youth Assistant Coach, or would like more information on the program, please contact the Regional Coach Administrator at [email protected].
  • Youth Referee:  This can make a dramatic difference in the youth volunteer's development as a player on the filed.  Beyond just learning the rules, youth referees become more confident and comfortable communicating and leading on the field.  They become more aware of tactics, and what happens or needs to happen off the ball for a team to be successful.  In short they learn by watching others play, and learn from their mistakes.  Youth referees must be at least age 10, and at least two divisions older than the division they are assisting with.  Youth referees may act as assistant referees as needed.  Youth referees are required to register as a volunteer on a yearly basis, and complete any and all required training prior to volunteering as a referee.  If you are interested in becoming a Youth Referee, or would like more information on the program, please contact the Regional Referee Administrator at [email protected].
  • VIP Buddy:  The VIP program (soccer for players with disabilities) is both unique and revolutionary.  Their are few if any other opportunities for VIP players to participate in team sports, and none as fun and rewarding as AYSO.  VIP buddies are the backbone of our program in that they have made a time commitment and a training commitment.  VIP buddies must register as volunteers on a yearly basis, and must complete AYSO Safe Haven Certification training.  They are paired with a VIP player on the field to assist with game flow, and to keep the game fun and focused.  If you are interested in becoming a VIP Buddy, or would like more information on the program, please contact the Regional VIP Coordinator at [email protected].
  • Youth Board Member:  Their are several opportunities for interested U14 and older youth to participate as Youth Board Members.  Youth board members are non-voting members of the board, who provide us with valuable insight and opinions - from a player's perspective.  They often assist with administrative activities such as picking primary program team names, or assisting with our social media footprint and communications.  Youth Board Members MUST register as youth volunteers on an annual basis, must complete AYSO Online Safe Haven Certification, and must be voted in to their position by the regional board.   If you are interested in becoming a Youth Board Member, or would like more information on the program, please contact the Regional Commissioner at [email protected]
Please remember, as a youth volunteer - you represent AYSO just as much as an adult volunteer.  You are expected to uphold our beliefs and philosophies, and always act in a fashion that does not reflect poorly on the region.  Most importantly, you are expected to set an example for other players, in terms of sportsmanship, team commitment, work ethic, and leadership.
