Incident Report Form & Participation Release Forms

These forms are available on the AYSO National website www.ayso.org

Incident Report Form

The AYSO Incident Report Form is used whenever there is a personal injury, damaged property, or threats of or actual physical violence surrounding an AYSO game, practice, event or property. The form should be prepared by the Coach, AYSO Official, or other AYSO Volunteer. The form may also be prepared by a member of the regional staff such as the regional safety director, or by tournament or event staff members.  Incident Report Form

Participation Release Forms

Whenever a player or youth volunteer has suffered a concussion or an injury or illness that required the care of a physician or a visit to an emergency care facility, the AYSO Participation Release Form must be given to the parents or guardians. The participation release form must be completed in full and signed by the child’s parents or guardians before the player or youth volunteer will be allowed to participate further in the program.  Player Release Form

Player General Release

Once the team coach has assumed charge of the children on his/her team, the coach remains responsible until a duly designated adult has taken charge of each child after a practice or game.  No child shall be left unsupervised after a game or practice.  Parents who are unreasonably late or consistently tardy may be reported to the Regional Child and Volunteer Protection Advocate (CVPA) for action. Each coach may establish a standing policy of where children may be picked up by late parents.  AYSO does not encourage children to walk or ride a bicycle home or to a friend or relative’s house. However, we recognize that it may be necessary in some cases.  Neither AYSO nor the coach can be responsible for a child’s safety if they do walk or ride home. A parent or guardian assumes full responsibility for the safety of the child once he or she is released from a practice or game. Please note that this also applies in the case of players who are of legal driving age and transport themselves to and from AYSO activities.  If your child will be walking, riding a bicycle or driving themselves home from practice or games, please complete the following information in order for your coach to release them:  Player General Release Form
