Coach Training Games

Coach Requirements:

1. Volunteer Form on file - must be current for season applying to coach
2. Safe Haven 
3. CDC Concussion Training
4. Division Specific Coach Certification 

Remember, age-appropriate coach training, and Safe Haven Certification is REQUIRED to coach AYSO soccer. AYSO has a goal of 100% coach certification. Every coach or assistant coach must have the Safe Haven qualification and is strongly encouraged to attend the appropriate age-specific training. Even if you are an experienced soccer player, you must attend the coach training to be covered by the Volunteer Protection Act. The Safe Haven and Age-specific coach training courses need only be taken once, although anyone is welcome to re-attend to refresh their knowledge.

Most of the time at the age-specific training will be spent on the soccer field. Participants need not have had any previous soccer experience or coaching experience, but should be prepared to learn by doing. Participants should wear sports clothing (shorts rather than jeans are highly recommended) and bring athletic shoes or soccer shoes, shin guards, water, sun screen, a soccer ball and note-taking materials.
