Welcome to AYSO Region 208 - Serving West Wichita, Maize, Goddard, Andale, Colwich and Garden Plain


AYSO VolunteerAYSO and Region 208 depend on volunteers to get the job done each week. Every coach, referee and board member is a volunteer and devotes their time to help provide our kids with a rewarding soccer experience. We cannot run a successful organization without our Volunteers...please take the time to Thank them.

In addition to the people you see each week on the fields, there are many others that help Region 208 in some capacity.

How Can I Help?

There are numerous volunteer opportunities within Region 208:

Regional Board Member:

These are the people in the Orange Shirts at the fields each week, and they help run the organization. In addition to the Seven Required Board Positions, there are many other opportunities to help on the board. If you are interested in becoming part of the Region 208 Board, please contact the Regional Commissioner ([email protected]).

Team Coach:

Each of our 100+ teams needs a coach. Coaching your child's team can be a rewarding experience. You do not need any experience, and training will be provided. If you are interested in becoming a coach, contact our Coach Administrator ([email protected]). If you are unable to be a team coach, you can still be an Assistant Coach. It is a great way to be a part of the game.


Referees are an essential part of the game of soccer. They enforce the Laws of the Game and help ensure the game is Fun, Safe and Fair to all involved. Region 208 strives to make a referee available to every game (U8 and above), but we can't do this without volunteers. Anyone can become a referee, including kids (10 and above) is provided. Becoming a referee is a good way to learn the game of Soccer. If you are interested in becoming a referee, contact our Referee Administrator ([email protected]).

Team Parent:

Team Parents help keep the team organized by performing some of the "administrative" functions of running a team. Opportunities include communications, and coordinating the fund raising or snack schedule. Let your child's coach know you want to is much appreciated.

Grounds Crew:

Each week many hours are spent mowing the fields, striping the fields, setting up the fields for play and cleaning up after the games. See the Grounds Crew section below for more information.

Other Opportunities:

There are many additional volunteer opportunies available throughout the year. Help is always need for morning setup, afternoon teardown, tournaments, and other events held during the season.
