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 Commissioner 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.

U5/U6 Coach: two hour classroom (online) and two hour field session
U7/U8 Coach: two hour classroom (online) and two hour field session
U9/U10 Coach: two hour classroom (online) and two hour field session
U12 Coach: three hour classroom session and four hour field session
Intermediate Coach: 15 hours, including four hours classroom and 11 hours field practical
Advanced Coach: eight hour classroom, seven hour field session
National Coach: residential course, held in Southern California, typically once a year for seven days
