Coaching Certification


Coaches must have a current volunteer form on file. Coaches will not receive their rosters until they have completed a volunteer form. Coaches must be Safe Haven certified and they will not receive their team’s uniforms until they have completed the AYSO Safe Haven course.

Coaches must be age specific certified by the date specified by Section 10 (usually the first Saturday in October). This date will be posted on the Section 10 website and on our Region 46 website. Teams without a certified coach will not be permitted to participate in Region, Area, or Section playoffs. The required training levels are:

• U6: U6 Coach
• U8: U8 Coach
• U10: U10 Coach
• U12: U12 Coach
• U14: Intermediate Coach
• U16/19: Advanced Coach

Coaches are strongly encouraged to stay at least one level ahead of the age they are coaching.

Starting in 2010, AYSO National is instituting a new policy that each team must have 2 age specific certified coaches. This policy will be phased in over several years. All U6 teams are required to have 2 certified coaches in 2010. U8 will have this requirement in 2011, U10 in 2012, U12 in 2013, U14 in 2014 and U16/19 in 2015. Region 46 will actively recruit more parents to complete this training so we can meet this requirement.
