AYSO Coach Certification
 

Safe Haven Coach certification
All AYSO Coaches must complete the Safe Haven certification. This ensures that the well-being of the child is placed first, the philosophies of AYSO are understood and teaches the coaches risk management to avoid putting themselves in positions hazardous to themselves and the children. It is also part of the requirements to be covered under the Volunteer Protection Act.

Age-Specific Training - U6, U8, U10 & U12 Coach certifications
These four coaching courses focus on working with the player in these age divisions to create a fun learning environment. Coaches in U6, U8, U10 & U12 must have the age specific coach certification for the age they are coaching. There are no substitutes nor will higher level courses satisfy the requirement. These courses have no pre-requisite and may be taken individually or in any order.

Intermediate, Advanced and National Coach certifications
These upper level courses build upon each other, thus a coach with the Advanced Coach certification may also coach teams needing only the Intermediate Coach certification. However, these do not confer the age-specific certification needed to coach U6-U12. A coach who holds an Intermediate Coach or above certification and wishes to coach in U10, must also hold a U10 Coach certification. U14 coaches must have at least the Intermediate Coach certification. U16 and U19 coaches must have the Advanced Coach certification. The National Coach certification is for coaches who desire to further advance their skills and offer a greater level of support to their region.

Cross certification from USSF
For coaches who hold a USSF license and a substantial coaching history, cross certification is available. Unfortunately, we do not offer cross certification from NSCAA diplomas, FA levels or other organizations at this time. Coaches with the USSF Youth Modules may apply for U6-U12 certification. Those holding a USSF 'E' license may apply for the intermediate certificate, and those holding a USSF 'D' license or higher may apply for the advanced certificate. Applicants must be recommended by the Regional Commissioner and the area and section coach administrators before the application packet is sent to the AYSO National office to be approved by the AYSO National Coach. Please contact your Regional Coach Administrator for more information. The full procedure is described in the AYSO Reciprocity Equivalency Agreement.




 
General Training Info
 
 

Registration: For all classes please visit the listed website for more details, registration, and contact information. Pre-registration is not required unless specified. Classes with low enrollment may be cancelled at the class start time or a couple of days before. Unless otherwise noted, please sign up for the class in advance through eayso.org. Eayso.org has been upgraded. If you are using Internet Explorer (70% of visitors) the browser often encounters an error and terminates, although FireFox has been working. We hope they fix this soon.

Location: It is normally advantageous to attend a course offered in your own region, as the class will be closer, you will have more opportunity to meet coaches in your city, and will get region-specific information about your region’s policies and practices. You may attend any AYSO course anywhere to receive coach training and certification.

Cost: Many classes have a fee associated with them. For AYSO classes within Area Q: These fees are for those volunteers from outside Area Q. If you are a volunteer from outside Area Q, please bring a check (no cash please) made out to "AYSO Area 11-Q" or to the region conducting the training. Area Q volunteers do not need to bring a check for any training within the area as all regions have agreed to pay directly any costs of their volunteers attending AYSO classes within the area. Area Q volunteers are those from one of the regions listed on our Area Q Regions page.

Be aware that to be covered under the Volunteer Protection Act you must be certified and trained by attending at least two classes: (1) Safe Haven Certification and (2) Age specific training. For example, if you coach in a U7 or U8 division you must attend a U8 course, a U12 course will only cover those coaching in U12. Also note that an intermediate or advanced certificate does not confer all lower age-specific certifications. Therefore a coach who holds a U12 and intermediate certificate and wishes to coach U10, must then get a U10 certificate. Most regions hold to this as minimum coaching requirements.

For questions please contact any member of the Area Q coaching staff.



 
Area Q ACE Program
 

The ACE (Area Coaches Education) program is to provide continuing training beyond the standard and required AYSO coaching courses. These clinics are intended to educate a wide range of coaches. Most coaches have never played soccer and sometimes feel awkward when teaching. Coaches will participate thus learn to play game and feel more knowledgeable. Each clinic will last approximately 2 hours. Program will consist of Intermediate and Advanced instruction and playing time. Participating coaches should wear appropriate soccer attire including shin guards and be registered as a volunteer with AYSO.
