AYSO Region 1631 - Downtown San Jose

Parent Participation Roles

Our AYSO region in downtown San Jose is 100% run by volunteers!

There are so many ways to pitch in: coaching, refereeing, lining fields, picking up equipment, planning parties, ordering trophies, updating the website, and so much more. A lot of volunteer roles only take a few hours each season. We provide all the training, and in most cases we match you up with other volunteers so there is always help available.

Family volunteer participation is a key to our community-based soccer league.  It allows us to keep costs low for families and gives an opportunity for families to get to know one another and help make it well run soccer league for the kids.
