  3. Why Did You Decide to Volunteer for AYSO? 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  4. Reasons for Volunteering • Love Soccer • Want to help children have a positive experience • Wife/husband volunteered me • Love dealing with problems • Friends are involved • Real job is boring • If I didn’t do it the team would be dissolved • Knew I could do a better job • Believe in AYSO’s Philosophies 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  6. Idea #1 Determine how many volunteers are needed 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  7. Start with the Regional Coach Administrator. “Last year there were 8 teams in the U-6 Boys Division. Being optimistic, this year you are anticipating 10 teams. This means that in the U-6 Boys Division your Region will need 10 coaches and 10 assistant coaches.” • This process needs to be done for each division. You will then have a master list of not just a total number but a number for each division. • Start Volunteer Position Charts to track needs (see next slide) 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  8. 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  9. The Regional Referee Administrator uses these team lists to determine how many referees will be needed in each division. • All other board members should use a similar process. 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  11. Idea #2 Appoint a Volunteer Coordinator. What are some things that this volunteer might do? 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  12.

  13. Idea #3 Decide when and where to recruit. What is the best opportunity of all? 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  14. Registration A Region should be able to recruit 90% of the volunteers that it needs at registration. 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  15. What are other Recruiting opportunities? • Game Days • Practices • Late Registrations • Events (opening day ceremonies, community activities, meetings, etc.) • Advertisements (posters at fields, newsletters, Web sites, etc,) 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  16. Idea #4 Just Ask… Who? When? Why? 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  17. Ask Everyone • Ask as parents as they come in the door at Registration • Say: “We need every parent to volunteer in some way. Please help us” • Don’t assume that parents will know that you need volunteers. They need to be asked. 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  18. Idea #5 Post the six AYSO Philosophies at Registration. How many Regions do that now? 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  19. AYSO Philosophies • Laminate them as big as possible • Put them in a prominent Position • Be Proud of who we are Everyone Plays Balanced Teams Open Registration Positive Coaching Good Sportsmanship Player Development 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  28. Soccer knowledge & experience are not required to volunteer for any position - including coach and referee because AYSO provides all the training required! 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  29. Idea #8 All board members should be at Registration to recruit for their own discipline. WHY? 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  30. All Board members should be at Registration • Coach Administrator recruits coaches • Referee Administrator recruits referees • You get the idea • Treasurer collects money and/or appoints trained volunteer to do it • Safety Director can help recruit field inspectors, field coordinators, helpers 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  31. Idea #9 You need a very spacious room 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  32. To spread out and allow parents and workers to interact • Why is this important? 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  33. Allows people to socialize, get to know each other, and feel welcome • People are more inclined to volunteer when they feel part of a “community” • Gives people more opportunities to talk about needs and questions 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  37. Idea #11 Have a speed line for returning volunteers It makes them feel special and new parents will notice 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  38. Idea #12 Make sure that every geographic area, community and school is represented by the workers at registration. Why is this important? 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  39. Diversity • If you only have men working at registration, it might be intimidating to women who might want to volunteer. • As you walk into registration and you see someone from your neighborhood or school, how will that make you feel? • Change and add some new workers every year so that it doesn’t feel like a “good old boy” clique 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  40. Idea #13 Have workers wear a large name badge that says in their language: I speak Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Japanese, Hebrew, Bosnian, etc…. Why would we do this? 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  41. Idea #14 Have a Children’s Corner Any ideas? 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas

  42. Children’s Corner • Serve child friendly food – only with parents’ permission • Play a video children would like • Have a drawing contest – ask each child to draw a soccer picture and put pictures up on the wall. Give each child who draws a picture a coupon for a free prize. Award a significant prize for the winner • Play games with the children. Utilize some of the teenage AYSO players to do this • Have a player raffle ($0.25 a ticket) 30 Volunteer Recruitment Ideas
