[CorvallisAYSO] Division Orientation & Team Meetings
Sent: Tue 8/8/2017 12:20 AM

Welcome to AYSO Region 149's 2017-2018 Soccer Year,

Topics: Division Orientation & Team Meetings, Communications & Website, Blue Sombrero, AYSO University, Highlights for Coaches & Referees, Highlights for Team Managers


Division Orientation & Team Meetings
Near the end of August, we will have orientation and team meetings for each division. These events will consist of division specific information followed by team meetings for all teams in the division. Coaches can get equipment and teams with completed requirements can pick up uniforms. More information about team requirements and the events will be sent after team rosters are published (see note below). Please save the date for division orientation & your player's team meeting:

  • 9/6 6pm - 6U Orientation & Team Meetings
  • 8/29 6pm - 8U Orientation & Team Meetings
  • 8/30 6pm - 10U Orientation & Team Meetings
  • 8/30 7pm - 12U Orientation & Team Meetings
  • 8/29 7pm - 15U Orientation & Team Meetings
  • 9/6 6pm - Extra Uniform Distribution Day

Note: We will start publishing team rosters in Blue Sombrero on Monday 8/14. As we complete teams, you will get an email.


Communications & Website - How We Communicate
Our region communicates through our region website and email...
Mass emails can come from a few systems, corvallisayso.org for customized emails & bluesombrero.com for standard emails or team notifications. We use both systems to provide you with pertinent information. From either system we will include [CorvallisAYSO] in the subject.
The region website will be the primary site for information about volunteer jobs, division details, region calendar, board contacts, region rules, and current season details. We will continue to post updates on the website, you can find information about the current season and all mass emails on this page: https://www.corvallisayso.org/about/seasons.html
Read on for information about the region management website.


Blue Sombrero - New Information System
This year brings many changes. The biggest is the Blue Sombrero region management system (RMS). AYSO national has moved to a new system for managing all region registrations and teams. This AYSO version of Blue Sombrero will include the game schedule, team websites, team communications, team calendar, team roster, and many other features. This system is new to everyone this year and it is still being developed/refined. As we progress through the season, you will see new features and interface changes. You can get to our RMS site here: http://www.ayso149.org


AYSO University - New Training System
The new learning management system (LMS) replaces the old AYSO training site, and now includes all training related items. This system connects to your Blue Sombrero account (Volunteers can login with their Blue Sombrero account) and includes online training, training signups, and learning materials. AYSO National is still working to refine this site, so you can expect changes throughout the year. You can get to the national LMS site here: https://aysou.org


Highlights for Coaches & Referees
We are still working on updating the website and publishing training dates, please bear with us. Training dates will be published before the team meetings in late August. Each division has some changes this year, so please show at the orientation to get the summary for your division. AYSO University has the yearly required Safe Haven and CDC Concussion classes available, please feel free to login to aysou.org and take the courses (note a bug exists for youth volunteers, national is working on a fix).


Highlights for Team Managers
All team managers are expected to attend a job training this year, the dates will be communicated after teams are complete on 8/14. Team Managers will have three job training opportunities (each class will be an hour). Training will include guidance for using Blue Sombrero, managing the new team volunteer structure and the new approach to field volunteers.


Thank You,
Luke Cotton
Region Commissioner

P.S. I am happy you decided to join me for our 39th year in Benton County.

[CorvallisAYSO] ##UX Team Volunteers Needed
Sent: Fri 8/4/2017 8:00 PM

Hello User,

In the each program we are still working on team formation. While some teams have been completed, we are still missing key volunteers to help ensure the viability of many teams. We need more volunteers before we can finalize teams. Each team will need to have a head coach, asst. coach, team manager, and two referees.

Please consider signing up to volunteer for your player, if you have not already. You can confirm or signup in Blue Sombrero by going to http://corvallisayso.org/login, sign in, and click on “VOLUNTEER” in the sidebar. The button to signup or invite someone to signup will be in the top right called “Find Volunteer Roles”, select the volunteer role and continue as yourself or invite someone else. Keep in mind that youth over 12 can referee. More details about volunteer jobs can be found here: https://www.corvallisayso.org/teams/jobs.html

Thank You,
Luke Cotton
Region Commissioner
