Youth Volunteers

Kids can volunteer too! AYSO Region 418 has an outstanding group of youth volunteers who help out as Youth Referees for Saturday Core league games, and as EPIC Buddies in the EPIC/Special Needs program. 

  • Volunteering is a great way for kids to give back to their community, develop leadership skills, and gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the game. We are always looking to grow the number of youth volunteers in our region and we welcome new volunteers to sign up. Parents should follow the instructions below to add a youth volunteer to the parent's account.
  • A volunteer application must be submitted by a parent or guardian annually, and position-specific training must be completed by the youth volunteer before they may become active in their chosen volunteer role. No background check is submitted for youth volunteers under the age of 18. Youth volunteers must be at least 12 years old. Volunteers 18 and older must complete an adult volunteer registration.
  •  When the youth volunteer application is complete, the AYSO training courses can be accessed on the AYSOU learning resources website, by logging in with the youth volunteer's unique username and password. Completed courses will then be assigned to the youth referee's volunteer certifications in their volunteer account.
