Team Volunteer Points

Team Volunteer Point System

AYSO 114 Long Beach is one of the best regions in Area 11Z. We rely 100% on volunteers. It is important that everyone continue to help keep our region great!

What are Volunteer Points?

Only teams which have accrued the requisite number of volunteer points are invited to play in Region 114 post-season tournaments at the end of the Fall season. For U5-U8 this is the Friendship Cup. For U10-14 and up this is the Commissioner's Cup, and the winner of each Commissioner's Cup division goes on to play in Area tournaments against other regions from Area Z, and possibly on to Section 11 Playoffs!

IMPORTANT! Failure to reach the required Team Volunteer Point threshold may result in disqualification from end-of-season tournaments/playoffs.

How Many Volunteer Points Does My Team Need?

In order to be allowed to participate in post-season tournaments, each team must accrue:

  • U5/U6: 10 points required for Friendship Cup invitation
  • U7/U8: 17 points required for Friendship Cup invitation
  • U10-U14: 17 points required for Commissioner's Cup invitation
  • U16-U19: 17 points required for Area Tournament participation

How Can I check My Team's Volunteer Point Total?

View your team on the Region 114 Matchtrak.com page. The bottom of the page shows your points total.

How are Volunteer Points Earned?

Volunteer points are earned by:

  • Refereeing AYSO U7 and up youth soccer matches as a center referee or assistant referee. You must be an AYSO certified referee. There is no limit to the number of referee points an individual may accrue on behalf of a team.
  • Referee mentoring of new referees and assistant referees during games. (Note: Regional Referee Mentors (Senior Referee Staff) are Intermediate or Advanced certified referees appointed by the Regional Referee Administrator (RRA) or RRA staff.) There is no limit to the number of referee mentor points an individual may accrue on behalf of a team.
  • Field Lining points are earned by marking playing fields with painted lines. This takes place Friday afternoons at 4pm before games are played. A TEAM may accrue a maximum of FIVE field lining points. Please sign-up using the Sign-Up Link listed on this page.
  • Referee / Coach Tent points are earned by staffing the Referee / Coach Tents during the regular Fall season. One is at Heartwell near the container; the other is at Saint Maria Goretti. Shifts are available during game hours (usually Saturday). A TEAM may accrue a maximum of THREE Ref/Coach tent points. Please sign-up using the Sign-Up Link listed on this page.

How Are the Points Assigned To My Team(s)?

Each time you sign up to volunteer in one of these positions, you are asked to select the team for which the points should be accrued. (Such as "Boys 10U Team # 03"). The region uses the identified team to assign points -- so make sure all volunteers on your team know your full team division and number!

Region 114 uses Matchtrak.com for game schedule, referee assignments, and team volunteer point tracking. (Link will be live once the season schedule is ready.) NOTE: The Referee / Coach Tent and Field Lining points are manually entered by a volunteer board member, so please be patient as these may take a few days to show in your team's accrued totals.

If you are volunteering on behalf of multiple teams, you may select a different team each time, but a single volunteer point cannot be shared among multiple teams. (In other words, if you staff the Referee / Coach tent to earn one point, that one point can only be assigned to one team.)

* U5/U6 games do not have official referees. Coaches/parents referee their own matches; this does not count toward volunteer point total.

** U7/U8 games have only one referee per match -- the center referee. There are no Assistant Referees at this level. These matches should be worked by newly trained referees or Youth Referees.

U9-U19: Should have three referees per match: one center referee and two assistant referees (ARs).

What doesn't count towards our team's total?

There are some volunteer positions/duties in Region 114 that do not accrue points. This includes being a Head or Assistant Coach, or Team Parent. Also, volunteering at the U5 Jamboree or Opening Day Festival does not accrue volunteer points.
