The AYSO Team Parent is a pivotal part of every team. They are the coach's assistant, cheerleader and traffic director all in one. These are things you will already be doing if your child is on the team, so take it one more step and help the entire team operate more smoothly! 

Every coach needs help arranging snacks and water for games, making calls when rain or wind makes practice impractical, and keeping an energetic team in line on the sidelines. You're making a difference for a whole team - a team that includes your child. It's a great way to make your child's team a family experience! 

Another important role a Team Parent can play is the unofficial Kids Zone™ representative at every game. Kids Zone™ is one of the ways AYSO makes sure all its players and volunteers are having fun. The program encourages spectators to use good language, show good sportsmanship in attitude and behavior, and create an enjoyable day for every player. The Kids Zone™ button, parent pledge form and sign, remind those on the sidelines to act appropriately, and a Team Parent can wear and share these important tools with everybody watching the game. 
Please step up at the beginning of the season and offer the coach your help as Team Parent!

Once you decide to be the Team Manager for your team, please log into your account and sign up for Volunteer Role.

  • Sellers must sell 5 items or more, cannot take 4 items.. has to be 5 or more.
  • Remember BUY-OUTS are $30.00.
  • Cash and checks only, change gets lost and also gets heavy.
  • Prior to turning in your fundraiser, you will need to tally up orders and buy-outs. This will be available at the field on due date.
  • Make sure to count the money IN FRONT of parent as they turn in their money and orders to make sure there is no confusion.
  • When fundraiser is due, turn in during your practice in case you missed a few parents. You will need to tally up your orders and buy-outs on form and turn that in with monies. Tally forms will be available at Check in tables, we will also have volunteers to help you fill out your sheets.

END OF SEASON PARTY

This is not mandatory, but you may want to celebrate the end of the season with a small gathering. Usually you can begin to plan this at least 2 weeks before the season ends. You will be required to book locations ahead of time for everyone tends to have party at the same time.

We have Shakeys and Grazianos as our sponsor who will provide players with two free slices of pizza and a drink and they must wear jerseys to display team spirit. This is an option but feel free to coordinate as you desire.
