Most volunteer positions require some training. Training comes in many forms, depending on the courses needed.

Safe Haven

Our volunteers are asked to complete Safe Haven courses in order to get credit for their volunteering. AYSO's Safe Haven program has been in place for years, and serves to protect AYSO players and the volunteers. AYSO's Safe Haven program was the first of its kind in youth sports, and we are proud to strive to create a safe environment for our players and volunteers so they can enjoy a happy and healthy soccer experience.
To take the Safe Haven course, you first need to sign up as a registered volunteer in our website, at You can choose a specific role from the list or from the [show more] option, or you can choose General Volunteer. You would continue with the prompts and questions.

*Note: Each login has it's own account. You should create and use your own account login on our website. Your account can still be connected to your spouse or child's account by invite,
Once the volunteer registration is done, you will have an AYSO volunteer ID. You can get the Safe Haven training. This is done on AYSOU, which is available directly at or by link, click on the 'AYSOU' link in our region's menu. Once in, click on 'My Courses' and you should be able to take Safe Haven from this screen.

  • All coaches, assistant coaches, referees, team parents need to register as volunteers each year. Log in to and register. Maybe five to ten minutes.
  • Volunteers need to be properly trained and certified. If they have done the proper training in previous seasons, they should not need to be re-trained.
  • Volunteers also should request VPS credit to get their one point for their team on our Points Status page. This should take under a minute.
We have many board and staff roles as well, such as Division Coordinator, Safety Director, Mayor's Cup Coordinator, and many more.
