How to Complete AYSO Volunteer Application – Youth Only
Before starting, have the following things ready:
- email address unique to volunteer
- last 4 digits of child’s SS#
- photo ID (any kind) for the child.
- name, phone #, address for two personal references – for example, a former coach or other sports official, a teacher, a club or religious leader, or anyone else who knows the child.
1 – Go to Sports Connect’s Region 13 home page: http://ayso.bluesombrero.com/region13
2 – Create or login to your account. This account should be tied to an email address unique to the volunteer. If you are registering a youth volunteer (under 18), the minor should have his or her own email address..
3 – Return to Sports Connect’s Region 13 home page: http://ayso.bluesombrero.com/region13
4 – Click on the tab called “Volunteer Applications.”
5 – Find the volunteer application for the year for which you are volunteering. Click on the “Sign Up” button next to Youth Volunteer. Scroll all the way down and click on the tiny “Continue” button.
Note – Please be careful when selecting the year. There are times when multiple years may be active at the same time.
6 – Click on the large [+] box with the words “Sign Up A Family Member” lettered underneath. Then click “Continue.”
7 – Now you are at the actual application form. Fill it in.
TIP: Answer only required fields (marked with a red asterisk *). If you provide optional answers, the page might reload – harmless, but confusing and time-wasting.
TIP: Indicate whether the youth volunteer is new or returning.
TIP: Photo ID Type: If you do not have any of the listed choices (for example, if you only have school-issued photo ID card), select “State ID” for the photo ID type.
TIP: Photo ID Number: If the Photo ID does not provide a unique ID# for the youth volunteer, enter “0000.”
TIP: Photo ID Expiration Date: If the Photo ID does not have an expiration date, enter “December 31, 2021”.
TIP: Reference #1 Organization: For youth volunteers who are also registered players in AYSO, you can list “AYSO” as the Organization. Under “position/role,” you can enter “Player” or “Participant.” The “Reference #1” and “Reference #2” should be an AYSO volunteer or administrator. If the parent is a volunteer, then the parent can list their own name as one of the two required references.
TIP: The Address of AYSO is 711 W. Woodbury Rd., Unit E, Altadena, CA 91001.
