Pre-K instructions

Thanks for choosing our Pre-K program! This may be your families first introduction to organized sports, so we want to make it a memorable one! Please follow these steps carefully so that we may have all the information we need to deliver a fun and exciting program.

Each step below is required to get your family ready for the Pre-K program. Please follow each step carefully and let us know if you have any questions.

  • 1 Child Registration: Click “Register Now” (if you are new) or “Login” (if you have used this registration portal before) at the top right hand side of this portal.

  • 2 Attend MANDATORY parents meeting: No Exceptions, attendance will be taken, at least one parent/guardian per player must attend. THIS IS A DATE CHANGE FROM THE FLYER!

  •  3 Adult Registration: Register yourself, and any other adult that may accompany you/your child, as an AYSO volunteer on www.ayso221.org. In your account, Scroll to the bottom. Click “Sign Up” next to “Playground Soccer Parent”. Follow the process of registering yourself. Fill it out completely as this will trigger a background check. Write down your AYSO ID number after registering, you will need that for the next step. No Exceptions, if the accompanying adult is not on this list, then your child will not be able to participate that week.
    • Only select one program when volunteering, even if you will have multiple roles or multiple children. Once you have volunteered for one program, your volunteerism can be applied to any program in the system very easily. Select the program that corresponds to the one your child is participating in. This triggers a background check to make sure all is OK, and is why the system needs SSN and references. The process is a little longer than in previous years as the background check is robust. This is to protect the community. .
    • DETAILED STEPS:
      • This website is to be used - www.ayso221.org
      • It can be annoying, but it works. Just remember to only select one volunteer role the first time, otherwise you will hate yourself.
      • Click on "Volunteer", and fill in any remaining information it needs from you (likely your employer)
      • Select the "Core" Program (that is the most common/popular program) and click on view roles
      • Select ONE program and ONE role (even if you have multiple kids or multiple roles) and select "Head Coach" regardless of your coaching status on your team (assistant coach, co-coach, head coach, etc).
      • Click "Continue"
      • Fill out all the information including drivers license and two references. The references are annoying, but it is what it is. You can use me for one of them if you don't have two good references or are lazy (or frustrated by this point like I am!).

      • Click "Accept the Waiver" button and click "Continue"
      • "Click Here to eSign Form" (You are familiar with this from signing up your child)
      • Check the box Agree to use the electronic signature, type your name, scroll down, click "Continue to Review", scroll down, Click "submit the signed signature application"
      • Whew, you are done!

  •  4 Adult Training: Each individual from Step 3 takes the 1-hour online training course on www.aysou.org "AYO's Safe Haven". Your login/password are the same for thsi website. Print the training completion sheet for your personal records (just in case, we should get a record electronically, but better than re-taking). No Exceptions, if the accompanying adult is not on the trained list, then your child will not be able to participate that week.

  •  5 Purchase Soccer Equipment: Size 3 soccer ball, shin guards (the ones with the socks built into the shin guards are great for this age group), cleats (optional but very common).
