AYSO Region 174

Volunteers

AYSO Region 174 is made up of volunteers


AYSO runs on volunteer power. There are 220,000 volunteers around the country making sure everyone plays! AYSO volunteers are mostly parents of current players, but also siblings, grandparents, parents of former players, neighbors and even active players themselves. AYSO volunteers give each child the precious gift of their time. Our region is lucky enough to have some of our volunteers continue to donate their time long after their children have aged out of the program.

AYSO is a family experience. As an AYSO volunteer, a parent gets to participate with their child and teach the values of giving back to the community. Sometimes it's the whole family with parents, siblings and grandparents all getting in on the act.

Coaching and refereeing may be the most visible volunteer roles, but there are many ways to help a team or Region. Many volunteer roles require small amounts of time, and are just as valuable to the kids. There is an AYSO volunteer opportunity for everyone.

California AB 506

Effective January 1, 2022, California AB 506 requires that all administrators, employees and regular volunteers in California MUST have a one-time background check as approved by the California Department of Justice to exclude individuals with a history of child abuse. This form of background check requires live scan fingerprinting. 

To clarify, a REGULAR VOLUNTEER is a person who has direct contact with children 16 hours a month or 32 hours per year, which applies to most coaches, referees, team parents, and board members who spend 2 or more hours on the field weekly.

This DOES NOT replace the Sterling Background Check. ALL volunteers are still required to complete the Sterling Background Check when they complete their volunteer application.

Live scans are not transferable between organizations, so if you have completed one for work or for another organization you are still required to complete one for AYSO. Live Scan only needs to be completed once. To register for an AYSO sponsored event or to complete the Live Scan on your own, click here: https://www.ApplicantServices.com/AYSO

Additionally, the law requires volunteers in youth organizations to complete child abuse and neglect reporting training. As a member of US Soccer, AYSO volunteers must now complete Safe Sport training. The link can be found on your volunteer page in your Sports Connect profile.The link is also available here: https://safesporttrained.org/?KeyName=tsVWe36Xa6PS3b5NzOug

Volunteers who do not have the Live Scan and Safe Sport Training complete will not be allowed to volunteer.

Youth volunteers under the age of 18 are exempt from taking Safe Sport Training, the Sterling Background Check, and Live Scan.

AYSOU

All AYSO Volunteers, including youth volunteers under the age of 18, must take Safe Haven, CDC Concussion Training, Sudden Cardiac Arrest Course, and Safe Sport Training (youth volunteers are exempt from completing Safe Sport Training).
