Coach Requirements

Required Training for Coaches

Safe Haven Course:All AYSO volunteers must take the Safe Haven certification course. New volunteers should attend a face-to-face training. See the Safe Haven training page for details. All seasoned volunteers are asked to take a refresher online Safe Haven course every two years.

Coach training requirements 
All head coaches and assistant coaches must be trained at the level they are coaching. For example, U6 coaches must be trained at the U6 level; U14 coaches must be trained at the Intermediate level and U16 coaches must be trained at the Advanced level.

The recommended prerequisite for taking U8–U12 coaching courses is the course below the division you hope to coach. For example U7 and U8 coaches should take the U6 course first, U10 coaches should take the U8 course first. 

Required prerequisites for taking Intermediate, Advanced, and National courses: for the Intermediate course, candidates must be certified as a U12 Coach; for the Advanced course candidate must be certified as Intermediate Coach and for National course candidates must be certified as an Advanced Coach.

Annual general coach meeting:The head coach of each team is required to attend one of the annual general coach meetings. It is highly recommended that the assistant coach attend also.

Volunteer Application Form (VAF): A VAF is required for every membership year (August 1–July 31) for every volunteer. See this page for details.

Women, men, and youth volunteers 12 years old and up are all welcome!
