Certification requirements for Volunteers

Thank you for volunteering to help with AYSO!   From field liners, to equipment and field management and maintenance, to scheduling, coaching and refereeing, there are a lot of roles involved to make youth soccer happen in Palo Alto.   We appreciate any and all the help that we can get.    For Board Members and roles that work directly with kids - Coaches, and Referees - for player safety, there are specific compliance checks that AYSO requires:
