Redwood City AYSO Needs You!
Did you know that over 1,600 kids participate in Redwood City's AYSO program? Providing a positive and organized environment for all these players requires hundreds of volunteers each doing their part. Every year we have many open positions - for coaches, assistant coaches, referees, board members, etc... If you want to contribute even just a little bit of your time, we need you! There is nothing so fulfilling as watching kids learn and grow and your kids will remember your involvement for years to come. Your help WILL make a difference! Sign up now!
Q. But I don't know anything about soccer?
A. You don't have to, most people just starting with AYSO knew very little about the game. All you need is a positive attitude.
Q: What about training?
A: AYSO will give you all the tools and classes necessary; plus many contacts to ask questions.
Almost 100 teams play every fall in Redwood City AYSO. That means 100 coaches and 100 assistant coaches. As a coach you will motivate, congratulate, teach, encourage, drill, console, strategize, lead, and mentor a small group of children or young adults for 10-12 weeks. Even if you have no soccer experience, AYSO will help teach you the principles of the game and how to coach young kids to have fun and learn soccer. Sign up to be a coach at registration. If you don't have time to be a head coach, then become an assistant coach! You'll learn about the game and you'll likely love it so much you'll become a coach next year.
"The task of the Referee is to assure the maximum
enjoyment of everyone present at the game."
Without referees there would be no game. Referees enforce the laws of the game and help assure that sportsmanship counts as much as points on the board. Every game is worked by 1-3 referees and each referee typically refs 10 games per season. That means we need basically as many referees as coaches and assistant coaches if not more! Sign up to be a referee at registration! You'll learn more about soccer than you thought there was to know!
Even if you don't have a clue about soccer and hate being outside, we can still use your help in running the organization and making AYSO a positive experience for all our youngsters! Redwood City AYSO has specific needs for the following volunteers:
Directors and Assistant Directors

These responsibilities can be broken into boys and girls sections, but one director could coordinate all. Assistant Directors are needed to help with work load and cover for the Director when they are unavailable. The currently needed positions are:
