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 in soccer? No problem! AYSO will teach you, based on the age level you are coaching. Unique age-appropriate training is one of AYSO's specialties. If you plan to be at your child's soccer practices and games, then you 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 three easy steps. First, fill out a volunteer form. Then either attend a short Safe Haven course in person or online. Lastly, you must attend a brief age-specific coaching course. It's only a few hours. We also have brand-new Coaching Manuals that help you with training plans and activities for the age you are coaching.
