Open Volunteer Positions
As a completely volunteer organization, AYSO of Dubuque relies on the willingness of team parents and other individuals to fulfill various responsibilities to help keep AYSO running smoothly. At the current time, the following Board position(s) need a volunteer:
Child Volunteer Protection Advocate (CVPA) - The Child & Volunteer Protection Advocate (CVPA) is a unique AYSO job that is required for every Region and is one of the seven required Region board positions. It is the role of the CVPA to oversee the AYSO child and volunteer protection program in accordance with AYSO Safe Haven policies. A fun, fair and safe experience for both volunteers and children is the objective of every CVPA.
(New) Assistant Coach Administrator - The Coach Administrator is responsible for ensuring that all coaches have proper training, and continue to advance in their certifications to create a more sophisticated learning and playing experience for the youth. The Assistant Coach Administrator would assist the Coach Administrator in putting together coach packets with up-to-date information, in addition to distributing information during the regular season. The coaching staff works with the Divisional Coaches to reduce the number of phone calls and emails per person.
(New) U5 Coaching Assistant - Organizing many 4 and 5 year olds in a jamboree style of soccer can get very hectic, especially when all responsibility is left on the U5 Master Coach. The U5 coaching assistant would help coordinate players and coaches/parent helpers to their fields and assist in showing them how to do each weekly practice/drill.
(New) Additional Coaching Staff - The Coach Administrators and Divisional coaches spend a lot of time ensuring that coaches are properly trained, and have all necessary information that pertains to their weekly responsibilities. People interested in joining the coaching staff would be a primary contact to coaches within their division to help distribute information, such as schedule changes, weather cancellations, or policy changes. The additional coaching staff works directly with the Divisional coaches, Equipment Manager, Coach Administrator, and Regional Commissioner, in that order.
Referee Administrator - Referees ensure that the game is safe, fun and fair for players, coaches and fans. The Region Referee Administrator supports the AYSO National Referee Program, making sure all referees are trained, certified and properly registered, schedules assignments for referees and assistant referees within the Region, and makes sure that the games are fun for all.
