Coaching Resources

The AYSO Coaching Program includes three facets:

Coach Safe Haven Certification, Concussion Awareness training, and discipline-specific training.  
All AYSO coaches are required to take the Coach Safe Haven course once before their first season coaching.  After that we strongly encourage coaches to take the Coach Safe Haven refresher at the Annual Coach and Referee Meeting at the start of each fall.  If you can't make the annual meeting for some reason, you can contact your Division Coordinator or the Regional CVPA for updates on changes to the Safe Haven and coaching programs.  

(Must be a registered as a volunteer to take courses)
The discipline-specific training consists of the following courses.  Coaches are required to take a coaching course every two years.

5U/6U Coach: One hour online and two hour field session
7U/8U Coach: One hour online and two hour field session
U9/U10 Coach: two hour classroom (online) and two hour field session
