Introduction to the American Youth Soccer Organization
The American Youth Soccer Organization, or AYSO was founded in the Los Angeles area in 1964. Since that time the non-profit organization has become of the the country's most sucessful youth programs, with regions in all fifty states. AYSO's success is bases on its philosophies of "Everyone Plays", "Balanced Teams", "Open Registration", "Positive Coaching", "Good Sportsmanship" and "Player Development".
Child and Volunteer Protection
Volunteers are the lifeblood of AYSO. To ensure the safety of both children and volunteers, each volunteer is required to take a short in-person or online training session called Safe Haven®. It focuses on safety and appropriate behavior with children as well as other on-field issues. Agreeing to a background check is also required for each volunteer.
Becoming Safe Haven® certified may take a little time, but AYSO families know their children's safety is worth it.
Safe Haven® is both a child and volunteer protection program. It was the first of its kind in youth sports.
The child protection aspect is intended to prevent child abuse, promote education and awareness, enforce policies and screen and train volunteers. It includes proactive steps that promote a positive, healthy environment for children.
Volunteer protection is the result of volunteer training, certification and continuing education. The Volunteer Protection Act of 1997 provides certain legal protections for volunteers who have been trained and certified and act in accordance with a written job description and AYSO's policies and guidelines.
