AYSO - We are Volunteer Powered!

Welcome to the Fall 2021 / Spring 2022 soccer season at Peterson Park AYSO Region 183. We try hard to deliver a world-class soccer program to enhance children's lives in a fun, safe, family-friendly environment based on the six AYSO Philosophies.

AYSO runs on volunteer power
This means registered volunteers run the local AYSO programs all over the country. Additionally, our National Board of Directors, National President, as well as every coach, referee, and Regional Commissioner – the list goes on – is a volunteer.

Thank you to the wonderful volunteers who came out Saturday to pack and help distribute Coaches' bags and even straighten out some items in storage. Your work was a very big help to our region. Thank You! Thank You!

A plea and a thank you for even more help
This year following the pandemic the board had to scramble and worked tirelessly to get all your children on teams trying to accommodate various needs. Our job was incredibly difficult because we no longer have in-person registration so we are often unable to make personal connections with potential volunteers. And due to the interruptions to our programs caused by the pandemic, we have not been able to recruit volunteer new coaches or referees for almost two years.

One of the things we had to do was in some cases was to assign those who volunteered to be an Assistant Coach or Team Parent as Coaches. This was done so we could give all 600 of our players a chance to play. There are several Coaches who coach more than one team and some who even chose to coach three teams!

Please have patience with our Coaches and help where you can, whether it be at practice, putting up goals before the first game, or taking them down at the end of the day. It is very much appreciated by all of us that folks have volunteered. Without them; many of our children would not be able to play and enjoy the beautiful game of soccer.

Thanking you for volunteering and your cooperation.

P.S. We are currently looking for volunteers to serve as Coach Coordinator as well as Division Coordinators. We would love to have your help!

Soccer on!
