Update on Free Substitutions for 14U and 19U Games:

Region 104 will be implementing free substitutions for 14U this year.  We have always done this for 19U, so we will codify this for these two age groups as follows:

 Substitutions – Teams may substitute an unlimited number of players with the referee’s permission at any stoppage of play.

 After questioning an injured player, the referee then authorizes a team official (coach, assistant coach or trainer etc.) to come on to the field of play to ascertain the type of injury and to arrange the player’s safe and swift removal from the field.  The referee must ensure that the injured player is safely removed from the field of play, prior to the restart of play.  The injured player may only return to the field of play after the game has restarted.  The referee alone is authorized to allow an injured player to re-enter the field whether the ball is in play or not.  Exception: The goalkeeper may be tended to on the field and remain in the game and if a player was injured on the same play that the goalkeeper was injured they may also stay in.

Coaches Home

Last season, our region had 415 volunteers coaching 444 teams.  Our coach volunteers range from parents with no soccer experience coaching for the first time to seasoned veterans who have coached 10 seasons or more.

As a coach, you will motivate, congratulate, teach, encourage, drill, console, strategize, lead, and mentor a small group of children or young adults for 20 weeks.  Even if you have no soccer experience, AYSO will help teach you the principles of the game and how to coach kids to have fun and learn soccer.  You'll learn about the game and you'll likely love it so much you'll become a coach next year.

All coaches must be registered volunteers.  Go to the registration link above, log in, and follow the prompts to complete volunteer registration.  Please ensure you complete the entire process, including the esignature at the end.  If you are a first time voluntter, print a copy of your volunteer application and and take it to a training class.  You will be asked to sign the form in front of an AYSO board member who will check your picture ID and take your form.  

Here we have a collection of useful information for our coaches.  Take a look around and see what information is available. 


At the start of the season, coaches get a box of uniforms for their players that includes a range of sizes to fit a typical cross section of our players.  But not all teams are typical.  So we have a way for you to get more uniforms, a larger uniform, or a smaller uniform.  Download the Uniform Order Form, fill it out, and email it to the equipment manager.  The equipment manager will check the form, let you know if there are questions, and order your uniforms for you.  You should get them in a couple of weeks.

Practice Parks

AYSO has permission to practice on over 100 parks around town.  All coaches must sign up for a practice park where you will hold your practices.

The procedures have changed this year for practice park sign up.  Please go to the home page through the link above and review the list of available parks on the bottom right of the home page.  When you find a park you want use, email your request to the Park Coordinator with your Name, Team Number, Age Division, Name of Park, Days you will practice, and Time you will practice.  The Park Monitor will then add you to that park if there is space available.  It is always a good idea to visit the park on your intended practice days and times to see how crowded it is, and whether there is space available for your practice.

Coaches – You are our local representatives at the parks.  Please help your parents understand that we share all parks with all other youth sports.  Cooperate with other users and try to de-conflict the use of space.  Please be respectful, and if you cannot work out any park space issues on your own, please contact the Park Coordinator.
