Team Parent

The AYSO Team Parent is a pivotal part of every team. They are the coach's assistant, cheerleader and traffic director all in one. These are things you will already be doing if your child is on the team, so take it one more step and help the entire team operate more smoothly!

Every team needs help arranging snacks and water for games, goal set up, uniform issues and keeping an energetic team in line on the sidelines. You're making a difference for a whole team - a team that includes your child. It's a great way to make your child's team a family experience!

Another important role a Team Parent can play is the unofficial Kids Zone representative at every game. Kids Zone is one of the ways AYSO makes sure all its players and volunteers are having fun. The program encourages spectators to use good language, show good sportsmanship in attitude and behavior, and create an enjoyable day for every player. The Kids Zone parent pledge form and sign remind those on the sidelines to act appropriately and the kids zone sucker program reminds everyone of these important tools while watching the game.

Please step up at the beginning of the season and sign up as Team Parent!

The Team Parent’s Job...
is to help make sure the team (both its parents and players) are supported and informed of any needs/requirements throughout the season. This includes: distributing team rosters, assigning goal & water nights (and making sure the coach never has to set up the goal or bring water), handling any missing/incorrect uniforms, collecting the team’s mail (from the storage area). The Team Parent also usually arranges the Year End party, including (if the team feels it is appropriate) any end-of-season gifts for the coaches.

The Team Parent should also make sure the other parents on the sidelines remain positive and encouraging during play.

The Team Parent is NOT ALLOWED to cancel any games (for weather or any other reason).

For any questions about the Team Parent’s position, responsibilities and for any materials, please contact the Team Parent Coordinator.
