AYSO cannot succeed without volunteers. Coaches, referees, and administrators are all volunteers. Volunteers provide the energy that makes our program a success. AYSO’s commitment to being a volunteer-run organization is based on what is good for kids and helps make AYSO affordable.
We are always seeking volunteers. AYSO has developed special training that helps parents who have little or no soccer experience to quickly gain the age-appropriate knowledge and skills they need to be effective coaches and referees. It also has special administrative and management training. Although we would love to have you as a board member, a coach, or a referee, there are many volunteer opportunities that do not require training or even that much time. We are always in need of:
- Team Parents
- Special Event Support
- Concession Stand Helpers
- Registration Support
- Field Set Up and Take Down
- Sponsorship and Fundraising Support
We also welcome youth volunteers. For Birch Run students, working with AYSO may satisfy community service requirements. Birch Run High School seniors may take on AYSO volunteer positions as senior projects.
Volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application to register with AYSO. You can complete the application online at www.eayso.org and bring two (2) copies to a walk-in registration or Call Melissa at 989-245-8562 for more information
We encourage you to come out and help! It’s fun, easy, and you will be doing a great service to the youth in our community.
