Coaches

AYSO is a volunteer-run organization.  AYSO has developed age-appropriate coach training to help parents who may have little or no soccer experience quickly gain the age-appropriate knowledge and skills they need to be effective coaches.

If you are interested in coaching an AYSO Region 92 team (Head Coach or Assistant Coach) there are four elements that must be completed for a coach certification, listed below:

  1. Complete the Volunteer application online in Blue Sombrero.  Volunteers who are over 18-yrs old must provide a social security number (for background check) and must complete the electronic signature.
  2. Complete the Safe Haven and Concussion Awareness training online at AYSOU.  (2a) Safe Haven training focuses on safety and appropriate behavior with children as well as other on-field issues.  (2b) CDC Concussion Awareness training provides the AYSO coach with current information on concussions in youth sports.  
  3. Complete the age-appropriate coach certification training.  Depending on the age-group, this may be an online course or a combination of class-room and field training.  A list of local in-person training opportunities is available at AYSOU.  The online course is also available at AYSOU but you need to purchase it first in E-Commerce.  We will provide voucher numbers to pay for the training.

Coaches will be issued a coach badge that must be worn at all games to clearly indicate to the referee and spectators that they are the coach and that he or she has completed the three requirements above.  Uploading your photo into your Blue Sombrero account will facilitate the badge making process more efficiently.  We will not print badges for coaches whose certifications do not show up in their Blue Sombrero account.

Field Helpers and Youth Volunteers: any parent or helper that participates in practices must also complete the volunteer application and the Safe Haven training.  Youth volunteers need to be at least 12-years old.

Fall Season Practice Sign-Up Page

The Fall season practice sign-up page will be open for coaches in late August.  Normally, 6U, 7U, and 8U teams are allowed one 1-hour practice per week on Richmond or Brett field.  10U and 12U teams are allowed two 1-hour practice sessions per week on Campus El Segundo, Brett, or Richmond fields.  14U, 16U, and 19U teams are allowed two 1-1/2 hour practices per week.  Teams may only practice during their registered time slot(s) as noted on the my signup page.  Note: 2017 Practices may be impacted by Campus Construction.  See your Division Commissioners for details.

Practice sessions must follow the AYSO practice session template.  For instructions on how to build an effective training session, contact your Coach Administrator.

Coach Courses

In-Region Coach Course dates can be found in AYSOU.

6U and 8U courses are available online at AYSOU The 10U course has an online portion and a field portion.  These courses are also offered in person at various times – these course can be completed in any Region.  Coaches must pre-register for in-person courses in AYSOU.  

The 8U course is required for coaching at both the 7U and 8U level.  Certification for a higher age group does not satisfy the requirement for age-specific certification at a lower age group – coaches must be certified in the age appropriate division.

The Intermediate certification is required for 14U and the Advanced certification is required for the 16U & 19U Divisions.

Challenger Sports

Challenger Sports will provide Coach Mentoring throughout the fall season.  Each week, coaches will be able to sign up online  to have a Challenger Sports Mentoring Session.  All Coaches will also be assessed for at least one practice and one game per season so that Challenger Staff can provide valuable feedback to help improve the skills of our region’s coaches.  The results will be shared 1 on 1 and Q&A is available.

Challenger Sports also provides an online training curriculum for Region 92 coaches to download complete practice plans or select individual drills and games to tailor a training session.  Click here for access to the Challenge Online Resources.  Use the code LA2017.
