Volunteer Registration


Questions about volunteering?  Email [email protected] 


Register as a volunteer through the My Account section of this site (link in upper right of the page after you log in).

In the My Account section, there is a Volunteer section on the left.  Then click on the FIND VOLUNTEER ROLES button.

Choose either the Core or EXTRA program for coach and referee opportunities.  For EXTRA, there are team parent volunteer roles as well.  For other opportunities, please email [email protected].  The Board listing is only for those who have already joined the board.  After you choose your program, choose one or more divisions you're willing to help with.

Then choose your role as head coach, assistant coach, or referee for each division you selected.

Finally, complete the volunteer application.  As noted on the form, please use your legal name so that it will match during the background check.  The information from this form will be passed to the background check company, so your name needs to match.  The bottom of the form has a place for training certifications.  You DO NOT need to complete the training before applying.  You can complete these trainings later.

Once you submit your application, go back to the Volunteer section of My Account and it should prompt you with next steps for the background check if you are a first time volunteer.

Background Check

If you are a new volunteer, after you submit your application, you should be prompted with information to complete a background check via Sterling Volunteers.  If you do not see this information, check under the Volunteer section of My Account.  You need to use the link provided after registration or in an email from Sterling Volunteers for the background check to be linked to Evanston AYSO.  Search your email for a message from [email protected] to find the email with the link to start your background check.

Volunteers do not need to pay for the background check. Program registration fees cover volunteer background check fees.

You may see warnings on the Sterling Volunteers site about your Middle Name.  Our current registration form does not have a Middle Name field.  This is OK.  Background checks seem to process OK without this, so go ahead and submit.  But do make sure your other names match your legal name.  If you need to update your registration information, you can do so on this website ( > My Account > Volunteer > Details button that's under your name.


After you complete your background check, your registration is complete.  Contact [email protected] with any questions.

In the meantime, you are welcome to get started on the required volunteer trainings. See Volunteer Resources > Training for details on trainings required for volunteers.  Plan to complete these trainings over the summer before the season begins. 

You won't be able to log into AYSOU/etrainu to access online training until the day after you register; the AYSO systems update overnight.
