AYSO Region 88 is an all-volunteer organization. The volunteers within this Region are committed to creating a well-run, child-first environment so the children that participate may play soccer, meet friends, and grow into healthy, confident adults. Every facet of what we do has “what’s good for the kids” at its core. We volunteer to serve the children, your children.
A Safe Haven certification is a requirement for every AYSO volunteer and the class only needs to be attended once. No one is allowed to help at AYSO practices or games without this certification. Also, starting this season, all team coordinators will have to attend this course.
If you are interested in attending a local clinic in or near our region, please:
Sign-up instructions will be sent to you.
Each coach has to fulfill a few simple requirements to be able to coach in Region 88.
Note that this also applies to all Assistant Coaches in the Under 8 division and older.
