Coach Training Program

The AYSO Coaching Program includes three facets: Coach Safe Haven Certification, Concussion Awareness training, and discipline-specific training.  All AYSO coaches are required to take the Coach Safe Haven course once before their first season coaching.  After that we strongly encourage coaches to take the Coach Safe Haven refresher at the Annual Coach and Referee Meeting at the start of each fall.  If you can't make the annual meeting for some reason, you can contact your Division Coordinator or the Regional CVPA for updates on changes to the Safe Haven and coaching programs.  

The discipline-specific training consists of the following courses.  Coaches are required to take a coaching course every two years.

5U/6U Coach: two hour classroom (online) and two hour field session
7U/8U Coach: two hour classroom (online) and two hour field session
U9/U10 Coach: two hour classroom (online) and two hour field session
12U Coach: three hour classroom session and four hour field session
14U - Intermediate Coach: 15 hours, including four hours classroom and 11 hours field practical
15U and up - Advanced Coach: eight hour classroom, seven hour field session
National Coach: residential course, held in Southern California, typically once a year for seven days

Fall 2017 Coach and Assistant Coach Information

Hello Coaches and Assistant Coaches,

THANK YOU for stepping up to be a part of your young players soccer experience this fall!!   AYSO is an ALL Volunteer organization with dedicated family members like you willing to jump in and make the magic happen for our kids.

You’re wondering what happens next now that you’ve offered to be an AYSO Coach or Assistant Coach!

Step 1 – Become an AYSO Volunteer by going to www.ayso104.org; the same place you registered your child.  Login and under My Account , Select VOLUNTEER on the Left, then Find Volunteer Roles on the Top Right.  Select next to 2017 Fall Core, then choose Head Coach in your child’s division.

Step 2 –  Training!  Every AYSO Volunteer needs three certifications:

Safe Haven
CDC Concussion
Age appropriate coach certification

Go to www.aysoU.org and login with the same credentials you use in www.ayso104.org.  Then click on My Courses.  Take the following online courses:  AYSO’s Safe Haven and CDC: Concussion Course.  This takes care of the first two certifications.

If are going to be a 6U, 8U, or 10U Coach, then you’ll take an age appropriate class online, followed by the age appropriate field session.  The online coach courses cost $7 but I have a coupon code for you to take it at no cost.  Please email me for your coupon code at chief.coach@ayso104.org

After you complete the online Safe Haven, CDC Concussion, and age appropriate online coach course, sign up for your age appropriate Coach Field Session which you can find on www.aysoU.org under Live Sessions.  These sessions last two hours and are scheduled on Saturday’s before the season kick off on September 9th.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are coaching U12 or above, your Coach class is a combination of classroom and field session (no on-line portion).  Please sign up for the 12U Coach or Intermediate Coach (for 14U) on www.aysoU.org under Live Sessions.  If you have any questions about these coach courses, please email the chief.coach@ayso104.org

Step 3 – Attend the Annual Coach Meeting at the New ATC at 3901 Georgia Ste NE, Suite C3.   These meetings are scheduled By Division and you can look up your division’s meeting on our website at www.ayso104.org and select the Calendar link.   At this meeting we’ll review some important information you’ll need to be successful, and you’ll also receive your roster and uniform box so you can contact your team families and get the season started!

Thanks for all you do for the kids,

Mark
