American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

AYSO Region 1204


AYSO is a 100% volunteer run organization, so the board members, coaches, referees, etc. are parents, friends and family who are committed to ensuring the children have a successful and fun season.

While there are many opportunities to help, annually our biggest area of need is for coaches and referees. No experience is necessary – only enthusiasm and interest in your children. AYSO will provide both live and online training as well as guide books and online resources to ensure your success and only requires a few hours per week of your time. You’ll find it’s one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll have.

What are Volunteers? 

People who give freely of their time and talent to a worthwhile group or cause. A volunteer is someone who believes that people make a difference and is willing to prove it.

Who are AYSO Volunteers? 

Coaches, referees, registrars, fundraisers, field markers, publicists, treasurers, administrators - many, many dedicated people all contributing their time and efforts to make AYSO a premier soccer program for kids.

Why are Volunteers so vital? 

People power runs AYSO. Volunteers strengthen AYSO by giving their time, energy, ideas and ideals. AYSO happens because of our volunteers.

Who can be one? 

Moms, dads, sisters, brothers, grandparents, even friends. AYSO needs volunteers who want to help make our soccer program a fun experience for kids - women and men, young folks, middle-aged folks and the "young at heart!"

As we say, "Everyone Plays" in AYSO and that means that everyone has something to contribute to the program. Our volunteers contribute:

  • special skills or abilities
  • time
  • energy
  • ...themselves
What do Volunteers do? 

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

  • coach teams
  • stuff envelopes
  • referee games
  • pay Region bills
  • make sure the fields are ready for play
  • take registrations
  • raise funds
  • schedule games
  • put up registration posters and take pictures
  • run meetings
  • take care of computer-related matters
  • ...make a difference
What do you get as an AYSO Volunteer? 

AYSO Volunteers make new friends. They learn new skills. They develop their creativity. They investigate new careers. They enrich their lives by growing from their experiences. Plus, it's a lot of fun.

How can I participate in this vital role? 

It's easy. Indicate on your registration form that you’re willing to help or talk to a board member when you drop off your registration. If you’re interested, please contact your Regional Commissioner or any of the Region's Board of Directors. They will be very helpful -and very grateful - to find the right job for you.

Take that first step, become involved in your Region and discover the Power of Volunteers.
