Registration is still open online and will remain open on a division-by-division basis as long as there is space in the division (based on the number of players on a team and the number of teams/coaches we have).

VOLUNTEERS are CRUCIAL to the success of our program.
Region 17 is operated completely by volunteers. We are always in need of volunteers, including referees, coaches, board members, assistant coaches, and team parents. There will be a table at registration to answer questions that you may have about volunteering. Please take the time to volunteer for at least one thing when you are registering your child.
If we do not have enough volunteers (parents) to support our season, then you may be notified that we cannot accept your child's registration, so please register to volunteer via Blue Sombrero. Please bring volunteer forms to a drop-off registration with current photo ID.
Volunteers should notify the board members at the Volunteer Table if you are planning to coach, referee, or assist in any way.
Coaches and Referees: All coaches and referees must be AYSO trained. There are many opportunities for Coach and Referee training prior to the start of the season for all volunteers (new or veterans). The time commitment for Referees is as little as 60 minutes each weekend during the season. Check the Coach's and Referee's Corner sections of the web site for information on the free training classes.
Safe Haven: The Safe Haven Course is required for all volunteers and must be taken once during your AYSO career.
