Becoming a Coach

Coaching children is a very rewarding experience. Coaching your own child's team can be one of the most rewarding experiences of all! Coaches are pivotal to having children get the AYSO experience. If regions don't have enough coaches, registration is scaled back and kids who want to play in AYSO are turned away.

Do you have little or no experience with soccer? No problem! AYSO will teach you based on the age level you are coaching. Unique age-appropriate coach training is one of AYSO's specialties. If you plan to be at your child's soccer practices and games, you'll also have time to be your child's coach!

To become an AYSO coach, you must be certified in the age level you are coaching. Certification takes three easy steps:
1. First, Register for an account on our website, during the registration process you will be asked if you'd like to volunteer. Just check the volunteer position you're interested in and follow the instructions.
2. Then take our online short Safe Haven course at
3. Lastly, you must attend an age-specific coaching course. Our Coach Administrator will reach out to you with details on a coaching course offered near you.
We have brand new Coaching Manuals and all of the equipment you'll need to help you with training plans and activities for the age you are coaching.

Coaches are essential to the game. They teach children soccer skills and help develop a healthy, positive attitude, teamwork and good sportsmanship. Coaching is a rewarding experience because you have the opportunity to build a child's self-esteem, help them learn new skills and just have a lot of fun.
