Volunteer Training Registration

All volunteer training and scheduling is coordinated through the AYSO national website called eAYSO. This website is important for two key reasons:
            1.         Personal information is kept secure. AYSO National makes sure that these protections are continually reviewed and certified, so that you can be confident whatever information you provide is handled properly.
            2.         Volunteer Certifications and Background Checks are coordinated through this site to provide a safe and qualified group of volunteers to our programs.
