Alaska Youth Soccer Club Toolkit
Alaska Youth Soccer has transitioned many forms to a new online registration platform for players, administrators, teams, leagues, and more. The platform streamlines most of the business practices of the AYSA into an online source, including Player and Team Forms, Adult Registration/ Background Checks, Insurance, Tournaments, AYSA Administrative and Reporting Forms, and AFL league registration/ scheduling.
Background Checks
Adult Seasonal Passes
US Youth Soccer adult seasonal passes will be issued through the approved Alaska Youth Soccer State website and program. Currently, AYSA is utilizing Bonzi. Each affiliate club and /or association must establish and maintain an account with Bonzi Corporation. All adult volunteers requiring a seasonal pass will be registered in the Bonzi system. This will assure that AYSA programs and leagues are following the standard that is common practice for all clubs with US Youth Soccer. AYSA requires that each adult working within the youth program have submitted and passed their annual Adult Background Check through AYSA.
