Allow son to play soccer in Lakeside AYSO immediately

This petition had 188 supporters

My son was banned from playing in Lakeside AYSO - where he has played for years - because the Regional Commissioner does not like me. I have previously questioned the Regional Commissioner on comments made regarding myself and my son as well as questioned procedures. Recently the region created a fundraiser seeking community donations. Before donating I asked some questions regarding the statements within the fundraiser and my questions were not only deleted from public view but I was then blocked from the region's Facebook page and my son's registration to play soccer this spring was canceled and my credit card was refunded. Two days later the Regional Commissioner finally returned my phone call and advised that my son was not only not welcome to play soccer in the spring but that he was also banning him from ever playing in the Lakeside AYSO region for life because he "doesn't like me." The Regional Commissioner stated that he and the board members are "tired of dealing" with me and they are electing to take their personal dislike of me out on my 12 year old son. 

I ask that you sign this petition in support of my son. We are asking that the Regional Commissioner and the local board members put their personal feelings aside and let my son play. One of AYSO's philosophies is Open Registration which is explained as: "Our program is open to all children who want to register and play soccer. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing. There are no elimination try-outs and nobody gets cut." We are asking that the National AYSO get involved to stop the bullying of our son. Not signing the petition allows grown individuals to continue to pick on a child.
