How to Keep Your Regions Compliant
Help RCs understand the budgeting process.
A big part of Regions being compliant is reporting the number of players and volunteers in the Region (both eAYSO Regions and non-eAYSO Regions) to the AYSO National Office. This is important for two reasons: 1. It ensures all players and volunteers are covered by AYSO’s Soccer Accident Insurance (SAI) and 2. It allows AYSO to collect the $15 per player charge that provides that insurance coverage and other financial obligations. By helping your RCs understand the budgeting process, they will be more likely to remain compliant. Make training a priority.
One AD says, “It’s important to track volunteer training and certifications for coaches, referees and administrators.” That way, you will be the first to know when one of your Regions is not compliant due to a lack of training. It’s also important to provide training for your Area staff to set a good example for the Regions. Provide a clear job description.
When a volunteer assumes the RC position, it’s vital that the AD provide them with a clear and thorough job description that details the responsibilities, expectations and resources. Requiring your RCs to attend RC Training
at the AYSO National Office should be included in the job description as well.
