The State of California now legally requires volunteers in youth organizations to be “LiveScanned” (fingerprinted) for ID and background check purposes. If you are a coach, referee, or regular volunteer, please read  the information here on how to do it:

Volunteers Needed!

AYSO Castaic is a volunteer-run organization, and we need parents and community members to help.

If you are a parent or other community member and are willing to help, please join us at an upcoming board meeting.  At the meetings, we discuss the current season and plan for future seasons.  There are countless ways to volunteer, with different degrees of time and effort.

Contact us at volunteer@aysocastaic.com for more info.

Referee Training 2022

We need parents and other community members to volunteer as referees.  If you’re willing to help, please see the info here:

Referees

Referee training for new referees (teenagers or adults) will be Saturday, September 3. Before taking the in-person class, there is an online portion of the course that must be completed, so please contact Jonathan Burk, our Referee Administrator, to get more info. And thanks in advance for volunteering!

There are other referee courses in Saugus, Valencia and Canyon Country throughout the months of August and September (usually on Saturdays or Sundays). If you can’t attend our Castaic class, those are also an option.

Check back here for a updated list of local referee training courses, or search online at AYSO etrainu

AYSO Parents’ Guide

Parents, referees and coaches, be sure to check out the “AYSO Guidance For Referees, Coaches, Other Volunteers & Parents.”  It tells you about the rules of soccer and the AYSO program.  There are some changes for 2017 that aren’t included in this version yet, but it’s still a valuable resource.
