Thank you for volunteering with the AYSO community. Each year we have over 500 volunteers supporting our 1,500+ children. We love our community and set a high bar for our volunteers. We require the following Mandatory courses for our coaches and assistant coaches.

Mandatory Volunteer Training

  1. Age Appropriate Coach Certification (for coaches and assistant coaches)
  2. Volunteer Registration for 2015
  3. Safe Haven Certification

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.

To Register for a class, log into www.eayso.org.
Click Enroll to take a class. Enter San Carlos in City and the appropriate Course in Class e.g. U-8 Coach, then Search.
This will list all the available classes in San Carlos. A Search for Section 2 and Area N will list all Classes available in San Carlos and the 7 neighboring Cities.
