Coach Requirements

Required Training for Coaches

NOTE: ALL Coaches must be registered volunteers for the current year.  This is an annual requirement.

Safe Haven Course: All AYSO volunteers must take the Safe Haven certification course. All seasoned volunteers are asked to take a refresher online Safe Haven course periodically.

Concussion Awareness: All AYSO volunteers in CA must take the Concussion Awareness course.

Coach training requirements: All head coaches and assistant coaches must be trained at the age level they are coaching.  
6U coaches must be trained at the 6U Coach level
7U and 8U coaches must be trained at the 8U Coach level

12U coaches must be trained at the 12U Coach level
14U coaches must be trained at the Intermediate Coach level

In Foster City, We have a combined class that covers coaching at the 6U, 7U, and 8U levels, which we refer to as 6/8U Coach and which is listed in AYSOU as 8U Coach.

There is no prerequisite for taking either the 6/8U or 10U Coach classes.  Take whichever one matches the age division you plan to coach, since the training is tailored to the age level.

Required prerequisites for 12U Coach course:  For the 12U course, candidates must be certified at the 10U Coach level.

Required prerequisites for taking Intermediate Coach, Advanced Coach, and National Coach courses
:  For the Intermediate Coach course, candidates must be certified as the 12U Coach level; for the Advanced Coach course, candidates must be certified as an Intermediate Coach; National Coach course candidates must be certified as an Advanced Coach.

Annual general coach meeting: The head coach of each team is required to attend one of the annual general coach meetings. It is highly recommended that the assistant coach attend also.
