How to Register as a Region 4 Volunteer

(Posted 8/13/17) If more than one person on the account you have set up is going to register to volunteer separate accounts should be set up for all but the primary person listed on the account. The system is not recognizing multiple people who want to volunteer under the same account.

(Posted 4/27/2017If you would like to Volunteer for a team-specific role (e.g. Team Coach, Assistant Coach, Team Manager, Team Referee) you will need to go through the Registration process for each role.  Fortunately, most of the information that you are asked to provide (name, date of birth, picture ID, last 4 digits of your Social Security number, references, etc.) is saved after the first time you Register as a Volunteer.  You will be asked to eSign and review your Volunteer Application Form for each role, but this is a fairly quick process.

For non-team-specific Volunteer roles (e.g. Board Member, Referee not affiliated with a specific team, etc.) you can register for that role in any Division within the Program (typically the Core Program).

1a.  If you have already created a Blue Sombrero User Account (only 1 needed per household) skip to 1b.  If you are a new Blue Sombrero User follow the steps below:
 i.  Make sure you are on the Region 4 website:  If you are a returning family or volunteer, do NOT try to register via eAYSO!

ii.  Assuming that you are on Region 4's  Blue Sombrero powered website and have not yet created a Blue Sombrero User Account, click on Register Now in the top right hand corner of the site.

iii.  Fill out the Create New Account section on the Login screen.  Then click on Create Account.

iv.  Fill out the Primary Parent/Guardian Information section, even if you are just registering yourself as a Volunteer. Be sure that your first name, last name, and date of birth exactly match what you had entered in previous years in eAYSO.  If you are not sure (e.g. Bill or William) go to to check.
*** Note *** The Address information should be your Home Address.
Do not use eAYSO to try to register a Player or a Volunteer for the Fall 2017 season!
If you wish to add a Secondary Parent/Guardian (for an additional adult or youth Volunteer in your household), enter his or her information in the Secondary Parent/Guardian Information section and click “Create Secondary Account User & Continue”. Again, first name, last name and date of birth must match what is in eAYSO exactly.  You can add additional Users to your Account at a later date.
If not, leave the area blank and click Submit

v.  You will see a screen which asks "Which best describes you?"
If you are registering a youth Player, select the 1st option "I am a parent or guardian registering a participant".  You will have a chance to register yourself as a Volunteer, after registering your child(ren) as a Participant.
For a Volunteer who does not have a child playing, who just wants to register himself or herself as a Volunteer, select the 2nd option "I am a team coach or other team personnel".

1b.  Log in to Blue Sombrero, click on the My Account button (upper right part of your screen)

2.  Click on the Volunteer icon on the left side

3.  Click on the Find Volunteer Roles button near the upper right

4.  Select the Program you wish to volunteer for (normally this will be the 2017 Fall Recreational/Core Program), then click View Roles

5.  For a team-specific role (Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Team Manager, Sponsor) scroll down to find the specific Division your child's team will be in (e.g. 8UG) and click the Signup button next to the volunteer role you want to apply for.
For Volunteer Roles not specific to a team (e.g. Referee, Board Member, etc.) you can choose any Division; you do not need to volunteer for the same Role multiple times.

then scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen and click on the Continue button:

6.  Select the person who is to fill the Volunteer Role.  If the person is not yet a User in your Blue Sombrero account, select "Invite New Account User".  Then click Continue:

7.  Complete all the information in the Additional Position Information screen (fields with a red star are required information)

then scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen; Accept the Waiver; and click Continue:

8.  You will be asked to eSign the AYSO Volunteer Application Form.  Check the appropriate boxes to accept the statements, type in your full legal name as your eSignature, scroll to the bottom, and click the button to continue.  You will be asked to review the Form you just eSigned, then scroll to the bottom again and complete.

9.  You should now be done with the Volunteer Registration process.  If your First Name, Last Name and Birth Date matched your record in eAYSO, you should see your Volunteer Role as Accepted, with your existing AYSO ID #.  If you are a new Volunteer, or if your information did not match exactly, you will have a new AYSO ID # and there may be a delay before your application is Accepted.
