Burbank AYSO Region 254

Volunteers


This region is made up of volunteers

AYSO runs on volunteer power. There are 220,000 volunteers around the country making sure everyone plays! AYSO volunteers are mostly parents of current players, but also siblings, grandparents, parents of former players, neighbors and even active players themselves. AYSO volunteers give each child the precious gift of their time.

AYSO is a family experience. As an AYSO volunteer, a parent gets to participate with their child and teach the values of giving back to the community. Sometimes it's the whole family with parents, siblings and grandparents all getting in on the act.

Coaching and refereeing may be the most visible volunteer roles, but there are many ways to help a team or Region. Many volunteer roles require small amounts of time, but are very valuable to the kids. There is an AYSO volunteer opportunity for everyone. Find out how you can help.

CALIFORNIA AB 506

Effective January 1, 2022, California AB 506 requires that all administrators, employees and regular volunteers in California MUST have a one-time background check as approved by the California Department of Justice to exclude individuals with a history of child abuse. This form of background check requires live scan fingerprinting. 

To clarify, a REGULAR VOLUNTEER is a person who has direct contact with children 16 hours a month or 32 hours per year, which applies to most coaches, referees, team parents, and board members who spend 2 or more hours on the field weekly.

This DOES NOT replace the Sterling Background Check. ALL volunteers are still required to complete the Sterling Background Check when they complete their volunteer application.

Live scans are not transferable between organizations, so if you have completed one for work or for another organization you are still required to complete one for AYSO. Live Scan only needs to be completed once.

Additionally, the law requires volunteers in youth organizations to complete child abuse and neglect reporting training. As a member of US Soccer, AYSO volunteers must now complete Safe Sport training. The link can be found on your volunteer page in your Sports Connect profile. The link is also available here:

Volunteers who do not have the Live Scan and Safe Sport Training complete will not be allowed to volunteer.

Live scan information

Effective January 1, 2022, all volunteers in California MUST have a one-time background check as approved by the California Department of Justice to exclude individuals with a history of child abuse. This form of background check requires live scan fingerprinting. This requirement applies to all of our coaches, referees, team parents, and Board members.

I'm sure many of us have been livescanned for various organizations over the years but unfortunately, livescan results are not transferable from another organization. So you need to perform this process for each organization you volunteer with. But the good news is that this is a one-time requirement. 

To help streamline the process and make it easier to volunteer, other Regions around us will be hosting a live scan fingerprinting event. For your ease and convenience, Region 254 will pay for this service.

Below is the list of these other Live Scan events:

September 18th - Region 174 Granada Hills

***If you can't make this event, you can register to be fingerprinted at a livescan center close by. You will have to pay the fees which are reimbursable by the region.

AYSOU


All AYSO Volunteers, including youth volunteers, must take Safe Haven, CDC Concussion Training, Sudden Cardiac Arrest Course, and Safe Sport Training.

Safe Haven and CDC Concussion Training must be updated every two years, regardless of what the status says in your account. Sudden Cardiac Arrest Course only needs to be taken once. Safe Sport Training must be updated every three years, with an annual update.

Safe Haven, CDC and SCA can be found at AYSOU.org, which you can link to in your volunteer profile in Sports Connect. 

Safe Sport Training can be completed here: https://safesporttrained.org/?KeyName=tsVWe36Xa6PS3b5NzOug
