Blue Sombrero

Blue Sombrero help line for parents: 866.264.2048

AYSOU Login Credentials - Volunteers will use their Blue Sombrero Username and Password to log into AYSOU. If this is working on Blue Sombrero, but not working on AYSOU, the volunteer will need to login in to Blue Sombrero, click on their volunteer details, and then click update. 
Additional Volunteer Users - users volunteering outside of the registration system will volunteer his/herself, or add a new user to volunteer.  If the volunteer now becomes an additional user, he/she will want to accept the invite to create a Username/Pas
sword on Blue Sombrero to get them access to AYSOU.  Youth Volunteers do not have to accept this additional user invite to move forward.

AYSOU Certifications - Certifications will port over from eAYSO once the user volunteers, based on the system recognizing the volunteer ID.  If the certifications do not port over, there is a mismatch in the ID.



AYSO Calendar


Air Quality Information
In response to recent years'  problems with California wildfires leading to health related Air Quality concerns,  Region 26 has adopted a safety policy this year to notify teams on practice and game days if the Air Quality is deemed unsafe for high exertion activities (AQI over 100).  


AYSO needs volunteers!  
Coaches, referees, and in many other areas at all age divisions needed!  Please consider what you can help with in filling out the volunteer portion of the application. We provide training, equipment, exercise, and a great supportive community not to mention kids who love learning from parents under the AYSO philosophy where everyone plays.   Coaching volunteers will be contacted over the summer and be given preference on days and times for practices.  If you have questions about volunteer roles, please contact us

Core or Recreational is our regular recreational & instructional program and has open registration - there are no tryouts to place on a team.

VIP  is for those whose disabilities make it difficult for them to participate on mainstream teams.




The City of Palo Alto Rain Policy

The city makes the call whether the fields are open early in the morning, usually before 7AM. They leave a recording on this rain hotline:  650 329 2697
