Coach Registration & Training Instructions

Hello Coaches!

If you are reading this, it is because you have volunteered to coach or assistant coach for the upcoming AYSO season. Our region appreciates your commitment to us. But before you can set foot on our fields, there are just a few administrative things that you need to complete. By completing this process, you are ensuring the safety of our players and the continued success of our program.

STEP 1 - REGISTER

AYSO is a national organization that requires all volunteers to register annually regardless of what position or role they are filling. This is very important for two reasons:

1. All registered volunteers are background checked by AYSO to ensure regions aren't putting player safety at risk. 

2. Only registered volunteers are protected under AYSO liability insurance. This means that you cannot be held personally liable if a player is  injured during the normal course of play. If you do not register, you cannot coach.

Registering is done online (link at bottom) and should only take about 5-10 minutes. There are separate options for new and returning coaches so be sure to choose the correct one. 

When you get to the end of the registration form, you will be asked to provide an electronic signature. Also, you will be assigned an AYSO ID number at the end of registration so be sure to write this down as you will need it to complete the online coach training.
 
NOTE: You do not need to print out a copy of your volunteer application unless you want it for your personal records.
STEP 2 -APPLICATION APPROVAL

You may start your training while your background check is taking place.

STEP 3 - COACH TRAINING

We know what you're thinking....ugh...training. Never fear. Almost all of the required training can be completed online at your own pace. Plus, you don't have to do it all at once. As long as you get it done before practices start you are good to go. AYSO provides a fantastic set of basic online courses to help you easily and conveniently get the training you need.

There are Three training sessions all AYSO coach volunteers MUST complete:

  • AYSO Safe Haven
  • Age-Appropriate Coach Training
  • AYSO CDC Concussion Awareness (Required by the state of Utah that all coaches complete this training)
