Coaching Policy FAQ

    AYSO has once again taken a leadership role within the youth sports community by requiring that all AYSO coaches be trained at the appropriate level of the team they are coaching. With this requirement beginning August 2010, every coach will be age-appropriately trained so that every AYSO child will be ensured of the best possible soccer learning experience. Below are questions we anticipate and the answers to those questions. More will be added as they arise.

  • When did the coach training requirement go into effect?
  • Are all coaches (head and assistant) required to be trained?
  • How is AYSO helping my Region accomplish this?
  • Are coaching courses available online?
  • Are AYSO coaches still required to be currently registered AYSO volunteers and have AYSO Safe Haven® certification?
  • What about coaches who have been coaching in a Region for years and have not attended any training? Will they be granted a waiver?
  • If a coach is not trained will the Region have to cancel games?
  • We do not have coach instructors in our Region, what is my next step?
  • Does the AYSO Coach Advisory Commission support this requirement that all AYSO coaches be age-appropriately trained?
  • How can my Region schedule age-appropriate coach training and AYSO Safe Haven certification?
