Coach Training and Certifidation

A coach can be the most influential person in a child’s life. In AYSO, Positive Coaching one of AYSO Six Tenets 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 and you’ll also serve as 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 age appropriate 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. If you are uncertain, try being an assistant coach. The Regional Coach Administrator or Division Coordinator will be happy to match you up with a coach that has a little more experience.

All coaches must be AYSO registered volunteers, take Safe haven (online), Concussion Awareness (online) and be age appropriately certified. To register as a volunteer you must complete the online volunteer application on this website. Once you are registered you can sign up for a training class through the web site.

The difference you can make in the life of a child is immeasurable and incredibly rewarding. Sign up to coach today.
