The Stars Come Out In Easy AYSO Registration Templates
Get more players and volunteers in 2012! The “Great Soccer Starts Here” registration materials – located in the new Region Toolkit – have been updated, expanded and are ready for your Region to start using today. Visit AYSO.org/Toolkit
to get everything you need.
An especially fun tool: Now you can send a “Come Back to AYSO” invitation postcard from AYSO alum and Major League Soccer star Landon Donovan to players that didn’t return to your Region last season.
That’s a powerhouse message to players that just may have missed registration last year, tried out another soccer program or got distracted by other activities. These players often just need an invite reminding them that they’re welcome back! Those players’ names, addresses and email are in eAYSO and just waiting for your invite.
Or how about sending a “Register Now” email reminder from U.S. Women’s National Team star Shannon Boxx to all the girls in your Region that played last season? Let them know when and where they can register for your new season.
Both of these star players launched their soccer journeys in AYSO, along with ESPN broadcaster and former U.S. star Julie Foudy, U.S. National Team captain Carlos Bocanegra, MLS and U.S. star Brian Ching and U.S. and Scottish Premier League star Maurice Edu. All these stars have stepped up to help your AYSO Region invite kids to register for the new season.
These handy materials are in the Region Toolkit as templates. For flyers, ads and postcards, all you have to do is type in your local information, print out a copy and take it to a printer. Online printers are making even four-color flyers inexpensive, but everything is available in black and white or color, so you can choose what’s best for your budget.
And don’t forget: The Region toolkit includes templates for yard signs (cheap, easy and your volunteers can stick them right on their lawn), car door magnets, fence banners, ValPak coupons and so much more. And there are also Spanish-language versions of everything that feature Landon Donovan and Carlos Bocanegra.
This spring, FOX Soccer will run almost 500 “Great Soccer Starts Here” 30-second commercials on its basic and premium channels. And “Great Soccer Starts Here” ads are also running in national magazines, websites and more.
When Regions across America all are using “Great Soccer Starts Here,” they’re a part of AYSO’s biggest-ever national advertising campaign!
