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.
