It is essential to have a number of buddies on hand for
beginning VIP players who will need them. The best buddies
are peers of the players—not parents.
Buddies, as with all volunteers in AYSO, must be registered before they
participate with the VIP players at practices or games. Each year,
volunteers must complete the Volunteer Application Form, register with
and be accepted by the Region where they plan to participate. Buddies
under the age of 18 years old must register using the AYSO Youth
Be sure to take your signed application to the information tent and ask to speak with Terry (VIP Coordinator).
