Volunteering in AYSO

AYSO is a volunteer-run organization. Coaches, referees and administrators are volunteers. Over 220,000 parents, neighbors, relatives and friends lend their time and talents so that each child gets a terrific AYSO experience. AYSO’s volunteer foundation ensures that it’s all about what’s good for kids. It also makes AYSO very affordable.

Requirements

Volunteer Application
Every volunteer (coach, referee, board member, team parent, etc.) must submit a Volunteer Application each year. They are delivered to AYSO National Headquarters for an annual background check, which screens for volunteers’ suitability to work with our participants.
