AYSO EXPOs are annual nationwide events for AYSO volunteers, hosted by Sections, that provide opportunities for training, certification and continuing education for all volunteers: coaches, referees, management and more. They are also great networking avenues to connect with other volunteers from surrounding Regions, that allow you to learn from one another. In addition to the training, there is a Sponsor/Vendor Show where you can meet not only AYSO National partners but local vendors in your communities that are providing services that can help your programs. It is also a weekend where we celebrate the achievements of volunteers who go above and beyond in your community.
Mark your calendar to join us as we share ideas, stories and our love of soccer with other AYSO volunteers just like you!
Any person who is a registered volunteer for the current membership year can attend any AYSO EXPO.

The EXPO registration fee includes your admission to the AYSO EXPO only, which includes access to all courses* and meals** listed on the event agenda; this fee is the per attendee cost to attend.
*PLEASE NOTE: Some courses do require an additional fee, registration, and/or prerequisite is required, which will be listed on the agenda if applicable.

Typically, the event begins on Friday at 2pm, and end on Sunday at noon. This may vary from EXPO to EXPO; please check your specific EXPO’s webpage and agenda for your event.
I’m interested in attending, and am considering staying in a hotel the weekend of the EXPO. Is there some place close by that I stay at overnight?
Often times our EXPOs have been held at a hotel, and we have negotiated great rates for our attendees to stay. These reservations can be booked by clicking the separate hotel reservation link on your specific EXPO page.
Please note that pricing and deadlines vary by location, with a limited number of rooms in the group block. AYSO cannot guarantee the group rate if the block has been filled or if the hotel deadline has expired, whichever comes first.
Please visit our website again in the Fall to complete the “AYSO EXPO Vendor Show Interest Form.” Please note that by completing this form, you are not guaranteed to be a vendor at this time. Vendor rates may vary by EXPO location.
Each EXPO has their own registration link. Once the 2020 EXPO site has launched, you’ll be able to register by visiting your specific EXPO’s webpage.
Please email the contact on your specific EXPO page for the refund policy. Policies may vary by EXPO location.
The AYSO EXPO registration includes: access to all scheduled workshops (except Instructor Courses), all meals (if offered) and refreshments breaks throughout the scheduled weekend event as well as an event goody bag and materials. Just as pricing and event agendas vary by EXPO location, the EXPO registration fee may include different meal functions, which can include a Friday night Welcome Reception, Saturday Breakfast, and Saturday Lunch; this may vary by EXPO. Any meals included with your EXPO registration fee will be listed on the EXPO event agenda for your location.
The Single Day Pass* is for Saturday ONLY and includes access to all scheduled workshops (except Instructor Courses), Saturday meals (if offered), AYSO EXPO goody bag and materials.
* Please note: If your EXPO offers Single Day Passes, there may be a limited number of Passes for each EXPO and registrations will be honored on a first come, first serve basis. If you have questions regarding Single Day Pass availability for your EXPO, please contact the personnel on the specific EXPO webpage for more information.
I would like to bring a family member who is not attending the EXPO to one of the meal functions. How do I get them a ticket?
Additional tickets to meal functions can typically be purchased once onsite at the EXPO.
Each EXPO may offer Instructor Courses as a part of the weekend event. Instructor courses prepare and train volunteers to become instructors in their specific discipline. There is an additional fee to register for the course(s) because it typically includes expanded learning materials such as manuals and handouts as well as lunch. This additional fee typically covers these expenses. Pricing, course offerings, and what the fee covers may vary by EXPO location.
