Volunteer Leadership

AYSO Region 13 is run entirely by volunteers. Everyone you meet who “runs” the region is a volunteer! There are many different volunteer roles inside the region and many ways you can contribute to our community soccer program.

Board meetings are on the first Thursday of every month at 7:15 pm, and everyone is welcome to attend. See the Calendar for the next one. If you have a topic you would like discussed at the next board meeting, please email the Regional Commissioner at rc@ayso13.org.
