To all Coaches and Referees;
AYSO’s goal is for every girl and boy stepping onto a soccer field to learn soccer and have a safe, fair and fun experience.
We rely on you to ensure that safety comes first. Please consider it your role that incident reports are completed whenever there is a personal injury, damaged property or threats of or actual physical violence surrounding an AYSO game, practice, event or property.
The Incident Report Form should be completed by the Coach, AYSO official or AYSO volunteer which may be a member of the Regional Staff such as the Regional Safety Director, or Tournament Official. The report is NOT to be completed by a parent unless the parent is the Coach.
Please be sure to print and keep a copy of a blank Incident Report Form in your coach/field bag along with a pen. It is imperative that reports are completed for ALL safety incidents that occur this season AND that these reports are emailed within 48 hours to Region 418 Safety Director, Brendan Deely - firstname.lastname@example.org.
All AYSO registered participants are eligible to be covered by the AYSO insurance policy provided they meet the necessary requirements, which starts with the timely submission of a completed Incident Report Form.

Registration is open! This is a great time to secure your child's spot for 2014 Fall and 2015 Spring. In fact, if you don't get this done before June 30, you'll pay more and there will be no guarantee your child will get on a roster.
This is a new registration timeline than we've ever done before. We want to be able to communicate team assignments to families earlier in the summer and that requires cutting off registration sooner. Help us help you.
Don't delay -- register today!
We are always looking for motivated volunteers to become coaches! No coaching experience, or even soccer experience, is required. We will train you! Becoming an AYSO coach is a fun and incredibly rewarding experience. You will have the opportunity to teach kids both soccer skills and life lessons that they will carry with them the rest of their lives. Make an impact. Become a coach!
