Please Pre-Register for the course you plan on attending following the steps below. [You can also find other courses offered nearby, with these same instructions.]
A reminder that you must be a registered AYSO volunteer and be AYSO Safe Haven certified prior to taking any coach training course.
Congratulations! You are now signed up for a coach certification course.
Other nearby Regions and Areas also offer training. Please follow their instructions and RSVP so that they know the quantity of training material to order. Please remember that you are a guest when you take training in their region/area.
On-line training is available for U-8 and U-10. Although not a substitute for the experience gained by taking the courses in person, the U-8 coach on-line course satisfies the requirement for being U-8 Coach Certified. The U-10 course requires a field portion to finish the certification process which is not currently offered stand-alone.
Coaches who have Intermediate Coach Certification are encouraged to attend the Advanced Coach Certification at AYSO Section 2’s Golden Gate Camp. This is a two-and-a half day residential clinic at Menlo College in Atherton, CA for coaches of U16 and U19 teams. The dates are July 22-24 2011. Register at the Section 2 site. This is an annual venue so you can also plan for 2012.
