Getting Started with Training

If you created your own account before registering as a Volunteer, the next step should be pretty easy.  Log in to and navigate using the My Account link

if you do not see this page, then perhaps you were registered under another person's account, such as a spouse or a parent.  The first step is for that person to add an additional account for yourself.   Go through this flow, wait 24 hours, and then come back to this checklist

From this page, click on the Volunteer link, which will bring up your Volunteer Certification status, and provide you with an AYSOU link.  In this example, this is a new Referee Volunteer who has not completed any of the certifications.

Clicking on the AYSOU Link will open a new window into the AYSO "E Train U" site using single-sign-on.  You should eventually see this:

The next step is to click on Training Library

From here you would select "Safe Haven" and take the Online Modules for Safe Haven, Concussion Awareness and Sudden Cardiac Arrest

For Coach Volunteers, check with your Coach Administrator for the Coach classes to enroll in.  Likewise for Referee Volunteers.


SafeSport Training is accessed in a different manner.  It is not available through EtrainU (AYSOU), rather you need to go to the SafeSport website using a special link.  This link is available by first going to your Volunteer page.  Then click on the SafeSport checkbox, and click Renew & Update.   

Note that SafeSport is not required for Youth volunteers (under 18 years old)

The following popup screen appears.  On this popup, click on the "HERE" link or paste the provided URL link into a new browser window to get started.

Finger Printing

This requirement applies to all adult volunteers whether Referees, Board Members and Coaches.  Youth volunteers do not need to be fingerprinted.

This is a new State Law (AB 506, effective January 1, 2022)  The law added all Youth Service Organizations to the list of organizations whose volunteers and staff must complete training in child abuse and neglect reporting and undergo Live Scan background checks which includes a fingerprint check. 

We will provide fingerprint captures at certain group events (coaches meetings, and so on - see calendar) or you may choose to get fingerprinted at a local business offering this service.

If you do get yourself fingerprinted on your own, you may request reimbursement for the cost.  It is also VERY IMPORTANT that you provide the following code to the fingerprint provider so that the results get routed to AYSO - code AA498  ( Find a local finger print provider)

More information on the California State Law requiring Background checks and Fingerprinting can be found here

Youth referees are not required to be finger printed, even though the registration site will indicate a "caution" icon next to the Fingerprinting
