Minors as Volunteers
Minors in Coaching Positions
Although AYSO appreciates and encourages young people to participate in all aspects of soccer, including coaching and officiating, no one under the age of 18 may hold the team coach or assistant coach positions, and must not be allowed to supervise other minors. They can be encouraged to help at practices – demonstrating skills and drills, for example – only if two trained and certified adults are present at all times.
Minors as Referees
Players aged 10 and over are invited to volunteer as referees. Youth referees have the same rights and responsibilities as adult referees. That is, they are responsible for the game from the time they enter the field until they leave. Youth referees complete the same training and receive the same mentoring as adult referees.
Becoming a referee is a great way for any serious player to improve his or her knowlege of the game of soccer. Understaning the laws, as referees must, and knowing how the referees see the game can really help a U14 or U19 player take their game to the next level.

The following rules apply to City Parks and APS Facilities:

- Pick up trash after all games and practices. Please take your trash with you so that you don't over fill the trash cans at the parks.
- Do not park in driveways or bolck mail box deliveries. Be respectful of neighborhoods surrounding the fields.
