Online Training Advice
  • You need to have filled out volunteer registration before you can login for training.
  • AYSOU.org is a new training tool where you login with your Blue Sombrero Account.
  • Each volunteer needs an account to do training (including youth), check your AYSO ID with your volunteer registration to ensure you are taking your training.
  • KEEP A COPY of your certification (new system = new bugs).
  • DO NOT use your phone or Safari for anything AYSO registration/training related.
