Age Appropriate Coach Training

Coaches and Assistant Coaches in every division within Region 2 are required to have AYSO’s age-appropriate training before they take to the field and lead their team.

Just because you can Cruyff turn doesn't mean your 8 year old players should be learning that too! The age-appropriate training we provide will help ensure you conduct practice sessions in a manner which is just that... age appropriate. Become proficient in delivering an effective learning experience for the players under your guard and understand how to maximize their potential for the duration of the season.

Here are the necessary Coach Certifications that you must earn if you are to coach in Region 2.

These classes are held periodically in, or local to, Region 2. You can register for classes at The AYSO University
Locally run classes will be publicized on this website.

In addition to the Age Appropriate Certifications, every volunteer must complete the Concussion Awareness and Safe Haven online classes available at The AYSO University

Questions? Ask the Coach Administrator. [email protected]

Did you know?

You can start your coaching career at any division up to, and including, 12U. To coach in older divisions you must meet certain prerequisites.
  • To earn your Intermediate (14U) Coach certificate you must be 12U certified and have coached in 12U for at least one season.
  • To earn your Advanced (16U & 19U) Coach certificate you must be Intermediate certified and have coached in 14U for at least one season.
This is an AYSO National Rule and there is no way to circumvent these requirements for the older divisions.

So... plan ahead. If you have a little bit of an itch but decide to hold off "until they're a little bit older" - don't. You might just miss the boat.
