Beginning with the 2013-2014 season, Corvallis AYSO is upgrading the volunteer position Team Parent to the new position Team Manager. This position is considered critical for team success. At team formation, each team is assigned a Team Manager. Volunteers for this position, like board members, coaches, and referees, receive priority in their choice of team location for their children. In a practical sense, this increases the likelihood that your child will play on a team with their friends and classmates, although AYSO always reserves the right to make team assignments in the interest of balanced teams.
