VIP VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION AND FAQS

VIP VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION AND FAQS


Should I volunteer for VIP AYSO?
Yes!  AYSO is a volunteer-run organization. Coaches, buddies and administrators are all volunteers. Nationwide, over 220,000 parents, teens, neighbors, relatives, and friends lend their time and talents so that each child gets a terrific AYSO experience. In Trumbull, we have 270+ volunteers!

What are my options as a volunteer?
It only takes a few hours to become qualified as a VIP coach or buddy. But if you’re not able to commit the time, there are many small jobs you can help as an adult volunteer! Even a few hours each season are an important contribution to your team and Region!
