Primary Program Coordinator, Region 213
What are my tasks and duties as Division Coordinator?
There are various tasks that you'll be taking care of. Overall, you are the manager of your division. You relay division issues to the region, and you relay region issues to the division. Below is a list of most of the things you'll end up working on.
You are the representative for your division.
Your very first task is to apply to be an AYSO volunteer.
With the help of the region, you ensure the division has enough coaches and assistant coaches for the teams to be formed.
You form the teams. The method to form the teams varies based on age division.
You pass out uniforms, rosters, and coach packets to the coaches. This is usually done at a coach meeting.
You address questions and concerns from the coaches or families in your divison. You pass along questions to the board as needed.
You remind coaches to submit ratings for players at the end of the season.
What are programs / player groups?
You can call it a season, a league, or various
The main one you’ll care about is called Primary
or Core program, and the Fall season is often referred to by the notation 1p.
You might also hear about Fall Extra, which is
1e. We’ll have Allstars, Spring, Youth Academy, and a few others.
How do I see my list of players?
Log in to eAYSO
Choose Reports / Player Report
Choose MY2014, and choose the Player Group of 1p
Sort based on whatever suits you at the time.
Please remember this is private information.
Can I see my players in an Excel spreadsheet?
Log in to eAYSO
Choose Reports / Player Export Report
Select the appropriate Player Group
Change status to Registered (or you’ll also see
dropped players, it will throw off your numbers)
Choose which fields you want to display.
I suggest: AYSO ID, First/Last name, AKA,
Street, Zip or City, Location Code, Phone, email, gender, DOB, Status, Division, School, Memo (for buddy request
info), Team Designation. Those fields
will probably be the best set for you.
Click Export Data for a one-time report. Or click Save & Export for a report that
you can use again, same fields with up-to-date information.When you want to run
the report again, you click on the My Reports tab at the top left of this
How do I find coaches?
are several sources for finding leads on coaches. There is not a single golden
source. Try your luck, send out some
emails. Here are some good places to start.
In eAYSO, there is a report called Vol Parent
Jobs. If you export this to Excel, you can see just your division. (It will
have both genders in there, though.)
This data comes from the Player Application in eAYSO.
The Volunteer Survey that is taken by every
family is a good source as well. This may have been sent to you already. This
list likely has some ‘yes’ and some ‘maybe’ or ‘discuss’ families. Don’t assume anything, always contact them to
confirm, even if they said yes.
The rest of the parents in your division that
haven’t replied. Email individuals, or
the whole group. There are various
examples of great emails that you can send out to help get coaches.
Where can I note the coaches I’ve talked to?
There is a shared Google spreadsheet. This is the BEST place to start. It will tell
you how many players you have, (which should match your own reports) as well as
how many people per team, how many teams, and other useful information.
You should keep your coach prospects in here. There is a spot for comments, for position (unsure, TC for Team Coach, AC for Assistant Coach, Ref for Referee, etc.
This lets the board and program coordinator know how your progress is, and if we need to look harder for coaches. It also helps us get ahead with reviewing certifications and registrations.
For corrections, questions not covered, questions needing to be added, or any other comment, email firstname.lastname@example.org
