Coaches

Head Coaches will be assigned one AYSO soccer team. All coaches must have filled out and submitted a Volunteer Application, received a Coach Clinic certification for their age division, received a Safe Haven Clinic certification, and attended a General Coaches Meeting prior to the start of the season before they can receive their roster and team equipment.
 
Coaches who already have a Coach Clinic certification for their age division do not have to take the course again.  If you have never taken a Safe Haven Clinic, now is your chance! It is a requirement for all AYSO Volunteers. Anyone wishing to take it as a refresher is also welcome!

Coach training and Safe Haven classes are listed on the Training page.
  
For the Fall season, coaches generally commence practice at the beginning of August and games usually start the 3rd week of August.  The regular season typically ends around the third week of October.

AYSO recommends that U6 teams schedule a training session (practice) once a week and U8 and older teams schedule training twice a week.  Each training session should last between 60 and 90 minutes each.  When the season begins, there will be one to two games per week in addition to the recommended number of training sessions.

For more information or if at any time you need to speak to someone regarding the upcoming season, contact the Coach Administrator, Heather Hinkle at coach@cvayso.org.
