Volunteer opportunities

AYSO at a Regional level, is an all volunteer organization. It takes hundreds of volunteer coaches and referees to put on our seasons. Can't be a coach or referee? Many other volunteer opportunities are available and critical to making our organization run. 

Opportunities await you!

AYSO is the largest youth sports organization, and it takes a large number of volunteers to run our programs. We have all kinds of jobs, and there is definitely one that will fit your schedule and interest. Some jobs are year-round, some just for one season. Some jobs can be done during the week, some during the weekend. There is something for everyone! If you don’t know how to do the job, we’ll train you for FREE! Please read over this job list. We are describing general categories of jobs for the most part. Most of these jobs should be performed by a committee, with one or two coordinators and a number of helpers. The more people involved the less time any individual has to spend on the job.

If you would like to volunteer for a job described below, send
 us your name, phone number, and email address to [email protected], and we’ll contact you. If you are not sure what a particular job entails, contact us for more information.

Major volunteer jobs

Coaches, assistant coaches, referees and team parents are the backbone of our organization. We need new coaches, referees and team parents every season. We cannot have games without them. We realize that most new volunteers have little to no experience related to soccer so we provide great training to get you started. 

For coach information, take a look at our coach page.  
For referee information, take a look at our referee page.
