The AYSO Incident Report Form is used whenever there is a personal injury, illness, damaged property, threats or actual physical violence surrounding an AYSO game, practice, event or property.
The form should be filled out as soon as possible after the incident and should be prepared by the coach, referee, AYSO official or a member of the Region staff such as the Safety Director or event staff members.
Filling out an Incident Report as soon as possible will allow the volunteer to capture facts and contact information before witnesses leave the field.
Make sure all coaches have several copies of the form at the beginning of the season - it can be downloaded here - and know the correct procedure to fill out the reports and turn them in. Incident Reports are not only a best practice, but a requirement to ensure proper follow-up can made.
Remember, you must keep all incident reports on file and email, fax or mail a copy to the National Office. But don’t delay sending them. It’s better to send the Incident Report Form in as soon as possible, rather than waiting until the end of the season.
