Volunteer Info


Thank you for volunteering.

All volunteers working with children must complete the following requirements mandated by California state and/or AYSO. You do not need to do these immediately, but should do so as quickly as you can. While these take some time, they protect our kids, and they protect you.

In particular, please complete the background check, fingerprinting, Safe Haven, Concussion Awareness, Sudden Cardiac Arrest, and SafeSport as soon as you can.

If you are a coach or referee, please follow the additional corresponding instructions below.


You should have already received an invitation from [email protected]. Please follow the link to complete your Background Check ASAP. Due to County, State and Federal reporting, Background Check Processing can take up to 10 business days. Self disclosures can add an additional 5 business days.

Note: Youth Volunteers (anyone under the age of 18 in California) are not required to complete a background check.   See Youth Referee Program for details.


Once you have completed the background check, you will need to complete training.  Follow the steps below.

  • After you have signed up as a volunteer return to the AYSO108 website.
  • Navigate to your Account view. 
  • Select the Volunteer option on the left-hand side.
  • Click on the AYSOU link on the right-hand side.
  • Continue to the Coaches or Referees sections below.


6U and 8U Coaches, you can take your courses online any time. Probably best to wait until a few weeks before you will first practice so the material is fresh in your minds.

If you have not done so, you will need to complete it in two parts: 1) an online course and test, and 2) an in-person course and field session
