How to Volunteer

There are two types of volunteers within AYSO:
  • Volunteers that work with or around children on a regular basis (Coaches, Referees, Team Managers) or have access to registration information (most Board members). This page is focused on the training/certification requirements for this group.
  • Volunteers that do not typically work around children or don't have access to any system information (Fields Liners, Goal Setup). These volunteers do not have to go through any of the steps listed below.

All volunteers in the first group (Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Referee, 8U Official, Team Manager, and most Board members) are required to go through various levels of certifications per various AYSO and state guidelines. These certifications are:

  1. Background Check: This is done through an external vendor (Sterling Volunteers) for AYSO National and are typically valid for about a year. When you signed up for one of the background checked volunteer roles and if you hadn't completed a background check with AYSO Region 64 within the past year, you should have received an email from Sterling Volunteers ([email protected]) with a link to their website to start the background check process. If you didn't receive the email, or you would prefer not to click on a link in an email, follow these instructions:
    1. Login to your account at www.ayso64.org
    2. Click on the 'Volunteer tab on the left side
    3. In the 'Certification' area of the page, click on the check box for the 'Risk Status' row and then click on the 'Renew & Update' button
    4. On the popup, verify and update (if required) your information and click on the 'Submit' button
    5. Click on the 'Submit' button on the next page asking you to confirm that you want to initiate a background check
    6. The next popup will say the background check request has been submitted, so click on the 'Continue' button

  2. Fingerprinting: This is a new requirement by the State of California starting in 2022. If you had already been fingerprinted in a previous season for any AYSO program, you will not have to go through fingerprinting again.  If you have not been fingerprinted for an AYSO program, you will need to go through fingerprinting one time.  Note that even if you have previously been fingerprinted for a non-AYSO youth program or school, you will still need to be fingerprinted for AYSO as the fingerprinting statuses will not carry across different organizations for privacy reasons.  The next AYSO fingerprinting event is 8/20/2022 from 2pm - 5pm at Raynor Park, 1565 Quail Ave, Sunnyvale, CA 94087.  The next one will be 8/27/2022 from 11am - 2pm at John Muir Elementary School, 6560 Hanover Dr, San Jose, CA 95129. Although you can signup at the event itself from your mobile device, it is much easier to signup ahead of time from a laptop or larger browser page.  Follow these instructions to signup:
    1. Go to https://www.applicantservices.com/AYSO-BILLED and click on the big red 'Get Fingerprinted at a Sponsored AYSO Event' button
    2. On the 'User Validation' popup, enter your email and click on the 'Proceed' button
    3. Check your email for a 6 digit code to enter on the 'User Validation' popup and click on the 'Proceed' button
    4. In the 'Region Number' dropdown for Step 1, scroll down and select the Region 64 option ('2J64 - AYSO - REGION 64 | 2J64') and click on the red 'Next' button
    5. In the next section (Step 2), fill out the information in the yellow boxes and click on the red 'Next' button
    6. In the next section (Step 3), click on the red 'Schedule Appointment' button for a fingerprinting event that works for you (e.g. 'AYSO Special Events (MARCH 5th EVENT ONLY) AYSO REGION 64 Sponsored Fingerprinting Event - AYSO15') and note the date of the event as you will need it for the next step.
    7. In the next section (Step 4), select the date of the fingerprinting event you had picked in the previous step, then select a specific time on the list of available appointments, then click on the red 'Next' button. Note that this will be your appointment time, so be sure and be there about 15 minutes before your scheduled time.
      IMPORTANT: Note that when you first get to this page, the calendar may be showing the current date, NOT the date of the fingerprinting event you had selected in the previous step. This gets confusing because it says 'No appointments available for the selected date. Please select a different date on the calendar'. You have to specifically select the date for the event you had selected before the appointment times are displayed for you to pick one.
    8. In the next section (Step 5), you will be required to watch a 4 minute video that walks you through what you will need to bring to your fingerprinting appointment and what to expect. When you are done with the video, click on the red 'Next' button.
    9. Follow the prompts from there and you will be emailed a QR code which you will need to present when you arrive for your appointment. Note that you should NOT be charged for this. If you are, stop the process and email us at [email protected]

There are also additional details on how to take the other training/certifications on this page. Note that you will need to create an account with the SafeSport training vendor in order to continue.
    5. When you click on the SafeSport training link for the first time, you will see a 'Sign Up' page to create an account. Most of the fields should be self-explanatory, but for the 'Name of Sport or Community Organization Required' field, enter 'AYSO'.
    6. When you successfully login to get to the Safe Sport home page, scroll down to the section titled 'My Courses'. There, you should see a course titled 'SafeSports Trained - U.S. Soccer Federation'. Click on the 'Start' button to start this course.
