What’s required to become an AYSO coach?

If you’re willing to contribute your time and effort to ensuring that kids have a fun experience in a fair and safe program, then you possess the necessary prerequisites to become an AYSO Coach. Regardless of whether or not you know a lot about soccer, AYSO will provide the training and tools to help you become a good coach. We’ve had plenty of moms and dads that started out knowing little about soccer that have gone on to become terrific coaches.

If you would like to coach or assistant coach your child's soccer team, please mark this on your child's registration form. Contact us for more information.
