 You Are A Great AYSVolunteer

  AYSO cannot exist without the dedicated group of volunteers.
They do it for the community children and are not paid.
Sign up as volunteer to help our children have a quality soccer program.


AYSO VOLUNTEERS ARE DOING THEIR PART TO MAKE IT SAFE, FAIR AND FUN.


AYSO Volunteers register annually in a Sports Connect Account (SCA). Volunteers not share an SCA even if they are in the same household. Owner of the SCA is called the Primary Account Holder (PAH). Only PAH can register as AYSO (youth) volunteer. Another person can be authorized as a Secondary Account Holder (SAH) but must not create a second AYSO volunteer in the same SCA. From inside the SCA a volunteer role can be chosen for ANOTHER person and then send him/her an invite to complete the volunteer application using a link sent to their (unique) email address of the new volunteer. Players can be youth volunteers but must create own SCA with unique email address. DO NOT sign up a player registered under a parent SCA as a (youth) volunteer in the parent SCA as they are not the PAH. Use the invite instead.
 
SCA is made once at the regional portal website ayso73.org for each parent and every (youth-)volunteer.
An application is completed annually in the owner's SCA. Volunteer registration valid 8/1 - 7/31 next year. 
 Read the " Important Notes for Registering as a Volunteer " 

FOR PLAYERS
- Parent is the PAH with a SCA under which all players in the same household can be registered.
- PAH must have legal guardianship of players which are registered cannot be the coach unless it is the parent.
- SAH is an authorized adult authorized to access the SCA but shall not register as a Volunteer under that SCA
- The AYSO insurance is linked to the player(s) registered under the PAH and SCA

FOR VOLUNTEERS
- All volunteers must be PAH of their SCA. NO sharing SportsConnect accounts between (youth-)volunteers
- Only the PAH completes an AYSO volunteer application in their SCA if they want to volunteer.
- PAH can sent invites to others to volunteer but not register them as volunteers in their own SCA.
The invitee must create own SCA in which they can select a volunteer role and complete AYSO (youth) volunteer application.
- PLEASE DO NOT Register yourselves as a participant as that means you are a player for the season.
- Use the Volunteer Icon on the left side of your account main screen and FIND VOLUNTEER ROLES.
- Team members like: Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Team Managers, Team Referees, Team Fund Managers, Communication Managers all register in the core program.  When in doubt see if any volunteer role is available in the Core program.
- Other roles like Instructors, Assessors, Board members, etc will register in different programs which will open late like August to avoid confusion with roles in the core program.


FOR PARENT/LEGAL GUARDIAN and the YOUTH VOLUNTEER.
A parent must own an SCA  BEFORE the youth volunteer starts the AYSO volunteer application in her/\his SCA.
- The parent listed on the Sports connect system e-signs the AYSO youth volunteer application in the SCA of the youth.
- A parent does not have to be an AYSO volunteer to e-sign the AYSO application of the youth.
- It is strongly recommended that family members or relatives also volunteer to motivate youth referees to earn community credits for school.
- Parents can create an invitation in their own account (Volunteer Page) for their youth or partner volunteers (must have unique email). This adds the new volunteer to their family circle. The invitee receives a link in his/her email and completes the registration by creating a new account . When a volunteer logs in with a new account but same email the system attempt to link it with the existing (old) account.

HOW TO BECOME AN AYSO VOLUNTEER?
How you become a Referee Volunteer is shown as example. The process is the same for every volunteer other than the task education.
Avoid problems and view the important notes on volunteer registration. Ask our board members if you have questions.

First things first:
(Re-)register as AYSO volunteer every year. Examples:  Referee, Youth Referee, Coach, Assistant Coach, Team Manager.

FOR 2022 FALL SEASON
ALL VOLUNTEERS associated with a team should sign up under the Fall 2022 Core program.
All other volunteers NOT referees sign up as volunteer under the 2022-2023 Volunteers Program.
For the referee related volunteers they sign up under the 2022-2023 Referee Program.
These later programs will be introduced to avoid confusion where team volunteers sign up. 


Details specifically for signing up as volunteer under the Core program:

Click on Volunteer icon in your account left panel. Then select FIND NEW ROLES button.
Select the Fall 2022 Program. > View Divisions > Select any division like 16-19U > View Selected Opportunities
Scroll through the volunteer roles > Select role and click. Then complete the Volunteer Application.
If you wish to invite some other person like a youth to become a volunteer then click on the INVITE instead on select your role. The Youth should have unique email address to receive the invite. Upon receiving the invite the youth creates a new account on Sports Connect with own ID (email) and password. In the new account the volunteer page should show up with the AYSOU button to access the training platform Etrainu.

Step 2: Regional Referee Online Course and the Companion course
Step 3: Continue with the course until all modules are done including the exam

DO NOT ASSUME that the instructor will call you or you receive emails to inform you of credits received for a course. It is your responsibility
to verify that you received the credit. Most instructors close rosters in 24 hours so you should check your ETU record.
