REFEREE VOLUNTEERING REQUIREMENTS

Thank you for interest in becoming a volunteer with AYSO Region 363!  The following steps are required to get you started on becoming a volunteer with us!

Detailed instructions on steps 1 & 2 are available at the AYSO National Website (opens in new window)

Please contact Moorpark’s Regional Referee Administrator, John Charrett, with any questions or issues at [email protected] for volunteer signup.


1) Volunteer Application

Every volunteer (coach, referee, board member, team manager, etc.) must submit a Volunteer Application each year through our Sports Connect portal.  Click on the “Login” button above if you have an account or "Register Now" button above if this is the first time having an account.

2) Sterling Background Check

The background check application is delivered to AYSO National Headquarters and to Sterling Volunteers: the company that conducts the background check. Sterling Volunteers provides all volunteers with for an annual background check which screens for volunteers’ suitability to work with players.  Once the results of the background check are received by AYSO National and by Region 363, the volunteer will be evaluated for the volunteer positions they selected.  If you are a returning volunteer, you will receive a notification from Sterling Volunteers 30 days before your background check is due to renew.  You MUST renew when you receive the notification in order to remain eligible to volunteer.

3) Live Scan

Live Scan fingerprinting is mandated by the State of California under AB 506.  Live Scan is an ink-less electronic fingerprinting that scans your fingerprints directly into the computer to determine who a person is so that a background check can be done.  
To clarify, a REGULAR VOLUNTEER is a person who has direct contact with children 16 hours a month or 32 hours per year, which applies to most coaches, referees, team parents, and board members who spend 2 or more hours on the field weekly.

To help streamline the process, Moorpark AYSO Region 363 has partnered with a local business, Accu-Prints to ensure all associated fees are paid by our Region.  Please fill out and take the printed form (California Live Scan Form R363) after scheduling an appointment to Accu-Prints at 301 Science Dr. Suite 132 in Moorpark.  Phone: (805-529-5288).  Walk-ins can be accommodated as well. 

Please note that Livescans are not transferrable from another organization, so you need to perform this process for each applicable organization you volunteer with, but the good news is that this is a one-time requirement.

You can complete the items below prior to completing your LiveScan.
