What is my role as an AYSO parent?

AYSO is an all-volunteer organization – we receive no public funds and all of our expenses are paid from the registration fees of the children who play.  We expect all parents to participate in a volunteer role.  AYSO is an organization devoted to child development in a soccer environment that is safe, fair, and fun.  The kids are the focus of our program, and the program depends on the efforts of all involved adults for its success.  We require that as a Parent, Coach, Referee, Volunteer or Casual Observer you maintain a positive attitude when dealing with the children under all circumstances without exceptions.  This also includes your attitude when dealing with other parents in the presence of children.  Understand that we maintain a 'zero-tolerance' stand on 'abusive behavior' and violators will be suspended for one full year without appeal or exception.

Please read and abide by the AYSO Kids Zone Parent Pledge (downloadble pdf) for the benefit of our soccer community.
