Why Coach?

A coach can be the most influential person in a child's life. In AYSO, Positive Coaching is a fundamental philosophy because of the crucial role that a coach has.

Coaching in AYSO is a chance to spend quality time with your own child but you'll also provide an important role model for all the children on your team. In fact, the joy of coaching is so meaningful, that many AYSO coaches continue coaching long after their own children have moved on from AYSO.

Soccer knowledge is a plus, but AYSO provides training and materials so that even a soccer novice can coach effectively by starting in the younger age divisions. Being a coach involves skills you probably already have in addition to specific soccer knowledge.

How does it work at Carlsbad AYSO?

  • Ages 18 and above are welcome to coach

  • The City of Carlsbad allocates practice field space most weekdays.  We will release the practice field space sign-up sheet in late July or early August.

  • If you are coaching your child, then you add yourself as a volunteer/coach during the process. If you've already signed up your child, then log in with the same username/password and add yourself as a volunteer/coach.  

  • After signing up, go ahead and start training (easy, see below).  

  • We will have a coaches meeting in early August where you will receive your equipment. 

  • Season begins on Late-August/Early-September through November

How Do I Get Started? 

  1. Go to, if you do not have an account then click on the green “Register” button on the top right and follow the process to create an account. If you have a child, then register him/her for the league and you will add yourself as a volunteer coach.  If you do not have a child, then just register as a volunteer.  If you have an account, then click Login and enter username/password and follow the same instructions.

  2. Log in to AYSOU.ORG using the same username and password you use for this site  Complete the Safe Haven and the CDC Concussion Awareness classes, then complete the coaching module for the level you are coaching (i.e. U12).

  3. Some levels require on-field/classroom training.  A Local clinic will be conducted in August, we will email you in July when that time and location is determined. If you do not want to wait, then you can register for and attend any other live course in a different region. To do so, go to AYSOU.ORG log in with the same username and password you use for this site.  Choose the "Live Courses" menu item, Click the "Sessions" button to the right of the clinic your are looking for, then  scroll down through the long list to find the clinic you want to register for.  Once you find the clinic you want, click the "Register" button.  Although it is rare, if another region charges you for the clinic, get a receipt and we'll reimburse you.
