Every Field Monitor (like all AYSO Volunteers) must register each year on the national AYSO Registration website at www.eayso.org and be Safe Haven Certified.
Field Monitors are the "eyes" and "ears" of the region at the selected fields. When you arrive, try to introduce yourself to the coaches so they know you are there. Since they may be in the middle of a game when your shift begins, this may not be possible until the next set of games begin. During your shift, we ask that you roam the fields and make sure that:
If you see any behavior that you feel should be reported, send the info in an email to our Referee Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Try to get as much detail as you can including the names of the individuals and/or coaches, team, date, field, and time. Don't worry if you cannot get all the names. With the team info, we can usually figure it out.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE ARE NOT ASKING YOU TO GET INVOLVED IN ANY CONFLICT. We do not want you to get in the middle of “poorly behaved” individuals. We simply want you to report what you see so the appropriate regional representatives can follow up and take appropriate action.
Please refer to the following PDF file for more detail in addition to an overview of the game structure in the U6, U7, and U8 Divisions where we currently schedule our field monitors.
Our region is implementing the certification requirements below for all field monitors.
