New Coaches Start Here

Interested in volunteering as a new soccer coach, or recently volunteered as a first time coach?  Coaching youth soccer is a rewarding experience offering you a unique opportunity to enrich children’s lives. Our region provides you all the tools necessary to succeed as a coach, and no coaching experience is necessary – our high quality coach training staff will teach you all you need to know about coaching youth soccer.

How Do I sign Up To Coach?

You can volunteer to coach a Region 47 team by either:

1. Visiting by a Region 47 player registration event and let a volunteer know you are interested in coaching. These events occur prior to the start of the season; we post date/time/location information on our Region 47 website’s home page.

2. Emailing the Region 47 Coach Administrator [email protected]

I Have Signed Up To Coach. What Do I Do Next?

click register now located at the top right of the home page and then fill out an AYSO volunteer form. Submit the form with an electronic signature, and then bring a hardcopy of your form to Region 47 for verification.

The system assigns you a unique AYSO ID number. It appears on your volunteer form, and also on your Blue Sombrero profile. Keep this number as it is required for on-line coach training courses.
What Training Do I Need To Take?
As a coach, you are required to take the following three coach courses:

1. Safe Haven. To ensure the safety of both children and volunteers, each volunteer is required to take a short online training session called Safe Haven. It focuses on safety and appropriate behavior with children as well as other on-field issues. You can take this course by clicking the AYSOU tab on our home page.

2. Concussion Awareness. To ensure physical safety of players, each coach volunteer is required to take a short online training session called AYSO CDC Concussion Awareness. This course teaches you how to recognize signs of possible concussion and what to do if a concussion is suspected. You can take this course AYSOU

3. Age Appropriate Coach Training. Whether you coach 5 year olds, or 17 year olds (and all ages in between), AYSO has a coach training course tailored specifically to the age group you coach. Our age-appropriate training techniques focus on the mental and physical abilities of each age group, within the context of player development. Coach training courses are also offered on AYSOU

4. When Do I Get My Team?
Region 47 creates rosters after (1) closing player registration, (2) having identified all coaches for the age group’s division, and (3) all coaches have submitted their volunteer form and have taken the Safe Haven and Concussion Awareness courses. Once all three criteria have been met, we will provide you with your team’s roster.

5. Now That I Have My Roster, Can I Start Practicing?
Region 47 will provide you with the authorized “practice start” date. No team may practice before this date. And you may start practice on or after this date if you have been given a team roster. Specific practice requirements as follows:

·         Playground Division: No practice allowed. Region 47 uses a “Jamboree” format for this division. Fun soccer activities and games for all players occurs the first 6 weekends of the season.

·         6U Divisions: Teams may practice one day per week, and for one hour per practice.

·         8U Divisions: Teams may practice one  or two days per week, and for one hour per practice.

·         10U and above Divisions: Teams may practice two days per week, and up to 90 minutes per practice (total of 3 practice hours per week).
