Phase #3: Coach Related Certifications

Coach Certifications & Training

New coaches will to go through a few more steps ASAP in order to qualify as a certified AYSO coach.

Coach & Referee Volunteers are required to complete two Safety modules in order to have experience and knowledge with various scenarios that will be necessary to keep our children safe. These modules only need to be completed once so if you’ve taken care of them in the past, there's no need to redo them. If you've never completed these Safety Modules they will need to be completed before being assigned a team. Find these modules at the following site: AYSOU

Safe Haven
1. Once logged into AYSOU, select My Courses on the main header bar. 

2. On the My Courses page, find AYSO's Safe Haven. Select the Open button. 

3. The next page contains all of the modules you'll need to complete to receive the Safe Haven Certificate. Once completed, the certification will automatically be uploaded to Blue Sombrero for you in order for AYSO Admins to review.

Lastly, each Coach will be required to have the necessary training completed equal to or exceeding the division that they will be coaching. IMPORTANT NOTE: The modules are in succession, meaning you’ll need to make sure to complete all modules leading up to your division.

1. Once logged into AYSOU, select My Courses on the main header bar. 

2. Select the division of your choice. Reminder: You will need to complete Coach training modules up 'til the division you've volunteered to coach. For example, if you're going to be a 10U Coach, you'll need to complete the 6U, 8U and 10U training.
