How to Become an AYSO Region 87 Volunteer in Just Three Easy Steps   


First off... Thank you for your desire to serve the kids and welcome to the AYSO VOLUNTEER TEAM.  I’m sure that you’ll find it fun, challenging, and rewarding as you develop your soccer knowledge and skills along with your child(s).   


All volunteers need to go through the AYSO validation/vetting process.  Every volunteer has their information confirmed and we actually do call the references and run the background check.  Each year when you renew your membership, we also run a background scan to make sure that things are as they were in the prior year.


To become an 'Official Volunteer' Here are the steps that are required.
