Registering as a Volunteer

Getting started

To get started from the My Account page, click Volunteer in the left column. Then click the Find Volunteer Roles button in the upper right corner. you will also be given the opportunity to volunteer immediately after registering your players.

If you do not have a child playing or you have already signed up to volunteer for this season then the first step will be to select the program. There should only be one program listed at this time for 2019 Fall Core. If your child is registered to play but you have not yet volunteered then you will not see this screen.

Selecting volunteer roles

Please understand that in order to be assigned to a team you have to be signed up as a volunteer in that division. This can be problematic if you want to coach in a division that your child is not playing in. For coaches and team parents this process is self-explanatory. However, for referees signing up in a division does NOT mean you will only be refereeing games in that division. Referees should only sign up once, the division does not matter.

It is required that you fill out a separate application for each volunteer position. So if you are registering as a board member, coach, and referee you will need to fill out 3 applications. Click the Sign Up button for the positions for which you would like to volunteer, then click Continue.

Volunteer application form

In the volunteer application form new volunteers (meaning this is the first time you have ever volunteered for AYSO in any region), please be sure to use your full legal name. this is because a background check will be performed and any mismatches may cause delays or incorrect results.

Returning volunteers should use their name and birth date EXACTLY as it was entered in eAYSO. This will allow the system to find your existing record so that you may skip a background check. Also, if matched it will retrieve your existing AYSO ID and certifications. We recommend that you log into your eAYSO account in another browser window for reference so that you can enter the exact same information.


After you finish the volunteer form you will be asked to use eSign to electronically sign the document. If you are a returning volunteer your AYSO ID should appear in the upper right corner of the page. Please confirm that this is the same AYSO ID that you have in eAYSO from the previous year(s). If they do not match please scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Back button so that you can correct your information and hopefully get a successful match.

If all the information is correct then scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Continue to Review button. After confirming the information on the form scroll to the bottom and click the Submit signed volunteer application button.

Repeat the process for any additional volunteer roles you would like to sign up for. The eSignature will not be required again.
