Hello Coaches!

If you are reading this, it is because you have volunteered to coach or assistant coach for the upcoming AYSO season. Our region appreciated your commitment to us. But before you can set foot on our fields, there are just a few administrative things that you need to complete. By completing this process, you are ensuring the safety of our players and the continued success of our program.

STEP 1 - REGISTER

AYSO is a national organization that requires all volunteers to register annually regardless of what position or role they are filling. This is very important for two reasons:

1. All registered volunteers are background checked by AYSO to ensure regions aren't putting player safety at risk. 

2. Only registered volunteers are protected under AYSO liability insurance. This means that you cannot be held personally liable if a player is  injured during the normal course of play. If you do not register, you cannot coach.

Registering is done online through https://ayso.bluesombrero.com/region673 and should only take about 5-10 minutes. There are separate options for new and returning coaches so be sure to choose the correct one. If you are under the age of 18, you should use the appropriate link under the youth registration heading.

When you get to the end of the registration form, you will be asked to provide an electronic signature.
NOTE: You do not need to print out a copy of your volunteer application unless you want it for your personal records.


STEP 2 - COACH TRAINING

We know what you're thinking....ugh...training. Never fear. Almost all of the required training can be completed online at your own pace in less than an hour. Plus, you don't have to do it all at once. As long as you get it done before practices start you are good to go. AYSO provides a fantastic set of basic online courses to help you easily and conveniently get the training you need.

There are Three training sessions all AYSO coach volunteers MUST complete:

  • AYSO Safe Haven
  • Age-Appropriate Coach Training
  • AYSO CDC Concussion Awareness (Required by the state of Michigan that all coaches complete this training once every three years)
