How to Become a Coach

Coaching children is a very rewarding experience and coaching your own child's team can be one of the most rewarding experiences of all! Coaches are pivotal to having children get the AYSO experience. If Regions don't have enough coaches, registration is scaled back, and kids who want to play in AYSO are turned away.

Do you have little or no experience with soccer? No problem! AYSO will teach you based on the age level you are coaching. Unique age-appropriate coach training is one of AYSO's specialties. If you plan to be at your child's soccer practices and games, you'll also have time to be your child's coach.

To become an AYSO coach, you must be certified in the age level you are coaching. Certification takes five easy steps:

1. Become a volunteer (If you have already done this, skip to step 2)
    a. Log into http://ayso894.net, or register if you don't have an account yet.
    b. Click on "Volunteer" on the left.
    c. Click "Find Volunteer Roles" on the right top.
    d. If you don't have a child registered, click "Show More" at the bottom of the list, then click SELECT next to "Volunteer Registration - MY17"
    e. Click "SIGN UP" for ONLY ONE volunteer role (you can add more later). If multiple divisions are shown, doesn't matter which division you choose. Just pick one.
     f. Fill out your volunteer information.
     g. Make sure you e-sign your volunteer form.

2. Take online core classes
    a. Go to http://aysou.org.
    b. Login using the same credentials you used for the ayso894.net site.
    c. Click "My Courses".
    d. Click "Open" to take "AYSO’s Safe Haven" and "CDC: Concussion Course".

3. Take the Coach course (for 10U and Under ONLY)
    a. Contact the Coach Administrator to get a training voucher.
    b. Login to http://aysou.org .
    c. Hover mouse over "eCommerce" and then click "Products".
    d. Select "Coach Training".
    e. Click "Buy Now" next to the Coach Training Course.
    f. Follow the steps to check-out.  On step 3, enter the voucher code in the "Gift voucher" field. Don't enter any credit card info.
    g. Once purchased, click on "My Courses".
    h. Complete the age-specific coaching course. Depending on the age division you want to coach, this training may be available only at an
in-person training session.

4. Final steps: equipment and sportac.us
    a. Contact the Coach Administrator to let him/her know you have passed all the coach requirements.
    b. When your training is verified, you will receive a confirmation email.
    c. Bring your equipment to the games and have fun!

Coaches are essential to the game. They teach children soccer skills and help develop a healthy, positive attitude, teamwork and good sportsmanship. Coaching is a rewarding experience because you have the opportunity to build a child's self-esteem, help them learn new skills and just have a lot of fun.


Contact our Coach Administrator or the Regional Commissioner, if you are ready to become a coach or need more information.
