American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.



As of November 2021 online training and sign-ups for in-person training for all AYSO Volunteers (Coaches, Referees, Board Members, etc.) is now done through a newly formatted platform still called AYSOU - which must be accessed through your Sports Connect account.

In order to be able to access AYSOU you must first be registered as an AYSO Volunteer for the current season; if you are new to this process, details can be found at

Once you have registered as an AYSO Volunteer (and have passed the background check process):
1.  Login to your Sports Connect account (via
2.  Click on the My Account button (just to the right of the Logout button)
3.  Click on the Volunteer tab - this brings you to the Volunteer Dashboard
4.  click on the new "AYSOU" button (just to the right of the "Delete" button)

After a few moments, you will be logged in to the AYSOU website in a separate window.  Make sure that it is your name in the upper left corner (just under the AYSO logo) and not someone else in your Sports Connect account.

The menu bar along the left side will take you to:

Skills Passport - most or all of the AYSO training that you have completed in the past (both online and in-person) should be listed here (Safe Haven, Concussion Awareness, Sudden Cardiac Arrest, coaching certifications, referee certifications, etc.).  Also listed is the Completion Date for each and a link to view a Certification of Completion.  If one of your certifications is missing, contact your Coach Administrator or Referee Administrator.

Document Library - Coaching Manuals, Referee Manuals, and other documents can be downloaded and printed from here.

Training Library - this is where you can sign up for available online and in-person training courses.
Be aware that many of the Coach and Referee courses will have pre-requisites (i.e. you cannot sign up for an Intermediate-level course unless you have completed and are certified in earlier or entry-level courses).
ALL Region 18 Volunteers are required to complete the online Safe Haven, Concussion Awareness and Sudden Cardiac Arrest courses.  These are available in the Training Library, under Safe Haven.

Training Event - this is a calendar-based listing of all in-person training (Coach, Referee, Management, etc.).  By default this shows ALL such courses throughout the country.  You probably will want to narrow your search by Region (we are Region 18) or by location (e.g. within 50 km or your current location).

My Training - at least initially, this only shows the Safe Haven modules (if you have completed the Safe Haven course in the past).  For a listing of all your certifications, use the Skills Passport section.

Help - the Help Centre provides links to several detailed Learner Support and Resources web pages or documents.
