As a former AYSO player, and a parent of young children, I continue to feel the need to serve our community by volunteering my time on the Carson Valley AYSO Board. I have nothing but fond memories of learning the game, developing self confidence, building lasting friendships and enjoying my time on the field while I played AYSO in this valley. I am committed to participating on the Board in any way that allows my children as well as all children in the Carson Valley to receive those same opportunities and experiences that I had. 






Referee Administrator - Kerim Posadas
I have volunteered as a U6 AYSO soccer coach since last year for my son's new soccer season.  Now I am volunteering to coach and referee for both of my kids' (Ivan and Felipe) team.  I have been playing soccer from the age of four and stopped playing two years ago. I played on different clubs around the country: college, amateur, and professional soccer leagues.  It's an honor to teach our new generations about this beautiful sport and make them the new soccer stars. I face one of my biggest challenges in my life and hope to succeed by growing older and continue teaching what I know best..."SOCCER".





Child / Volunteer Protection Advocate - Rob Rose

It was five years ago that I  received the call from our local AYSO region asking if I would volunteer to coach my daughters soccer team. I was terrified. I had never played soccer and knew nothing about the game. After some cajoling from my dear wife and kids I reluctantly accepted the position. A few hours of internet surfing and reading coaching manuals provided by AYSO I did my best to ready myself for my first coaching experience. I’ll never forget the first day I met the kids on the team with their smiling eager faces and positive energy. I was hooked. Fast forward five years and I still love coaching the kids and have expanded my involvement with the organization as a division coordinator, field coordinator, referee and now the Child and Volunteer Protection Advocate . 


Uniform Coordinator - Anita Whiteley
Ten years ago we signed up our son with AYSO not knowing anything about soccer but we were happy as parents to help out in anyway we could. Over these years our daughter has also played AYSO. It has been a fun journey learning as we went and have really grown to love the game. I started out volunteering as team parent, then coached five years, served three years as a Division Coordinator and now this will be my second year as the Uniform Coordinator. We have loved watching our kids get out and be active while enjoying the outdoors and having fun. We love being involved with AYSO because it has  built confidence, developed good sportsmanship, built friendships  and taught our kids how to work as a team at even a young age. I look forward to another great year representing Region 318.

In elementary school I played soccer on a coed team sponsored by the local Kiwanis club in the area I grew up.  When our kids were old enough to play AYSO in this community, I was taken back to the fun times and the experience I had as a youth playing soccer.   I have supported AYSO for the last few years and was an assistant coach on my sons team during one of the recent seasons.  It is great to be able to volunteer and be more active in an organization that provides so much for our youth in the community.   It is good to see the skills that the youth develop and it is rewarding to be a part of their success.  I enjoy the being in the outdoors with my family and cycling in my free time.




Picture Day Coordinator - Melissa Compton
Hey my name is Melissa Compton I grew up playing in AYSO, I love the sport of soccer.....Now that I have children playing in AYSO I figured I should volunteer my time in helping the community keep this sport alive. I love watching my kids on the field learning how to be team players, making new friends and best of all having the time of their lives which to me is most important. I want my children and hopefully yours growing up remembering the love that they had for soccer.....So remember have fun out on the field and practice, practice, practice! :)





Website - Chris Garton
Soccer was a key foundation in my childhood and had many positive effects on my personal growth.  It's important to me that other kids get to have that same opportunity. Soccer programs in a community don't just happen.  After coaching my son's teams for the last five years, I realize how much effort it takes by a LOT of volunteers to have a successful and vibrant program.  Updating this website and getting involved in other projects is rewarding for me to be a part of the Carson Valley volunteer team.







Secretary - Daphne Hillyer
I have been attending soccer games for more than six years. I have been a team mom for many of them. It was Rob Rose who asked if I would be interested in being a Board member. I was looking for something to volunteer for and this was perfect. I never played soccer. Baseball and basketball were the sports I played all through high school. I learn more of the game all the time and now I have the opportunity to give back to what my girls love playing the most. My daughter Megan plays both spring and fall soccer.  Now she is also a junior referee. 






Treasurer - Tami Gray
I love watching soccer.  It's so exciting every time they score a touchdown.  The best parts is when they turn a double play or make a three-point shot. Gee, I just love this sport!










Equipment Coordinator - Cory Baird
I started within the Carson Valley AYSO as a Head Coach after a couple of years coaching for this great organization I decided to give more.
