Uniform replacement information will be available after uniforms have been distributed.
One of the first and most important jobs you will have as a Region 9 Coach will be to recruit a Team Manager (or Managers, if 2 parents wish to share the job). This person should be organized and detail-oriented, willing and able to help relieve you of some of the details of running a team: team banners, snack schedules, team parties and more.
Check out the Team Managers page for complete details about the Team Volunteers you will need for the season. (They are required for all teams). It also explains how you or your Team Manager can get the Team Volunteer information submitted.
Don't forget to register yourself as an AYSO Volunteer for the 2013 season! This applies to both new AND returning coaches and other volunteers.
Not sure if you are already a Registered AYSO Volunteer for the 2013 season? Check here 2013 Registered Volunteers to see if your name is there.
The coaching program is administered under the guidance of the Regional Coaching Administrator and his staff, with the assistance of the Area & Section Coaching staff. The coaching program requires certification of each individual to assure safety and consistency in coaching.
When you decide to become a coach in AYSO your efforts are supported by one of the most complete training programs there is. Depending on the age of the players you have decided to coach you will need to be trained for that level. You may already know how to coach at that age level, but in order to certify you for that level AYSO will need the paperwork as proof. Besides, you may learn something new or a better way of teaching something you know.
Coaching does come with some requirements. In order to coach in AYSO you must be certified. This means you must attend the coaches clinic designed for your level. You must also have completed the previous levels starting at beginning. As part of this training you will have learned about Safe Haven and the "Philosophies" of AYSO. All of these things will help support you efforts as a coach and make the soccer experience for the children Safe, Fair, and Fun.
Check out the Simple Soccer Training and Coaching DVD Library! Simple Soccer DVDs are a collection of Award Winning soccer training DVDs aimed specifically at AYSO parents, coaches, and players. To quote Tom Becker (Region 9 Coach Administrator): "His DVDs are good, I have watched several...". As an extra bonus, every purchase of one of these DVD's will benefit Region 9!Top of Page
The Game Cards are an official record of each game that we are required to have for ALL divisions. Please fill them out correctly. Check our Game Card Info sample for a quick reminder. It shows which sections coaches AND referees should fill out.
Every season we get some game cards turned in that are not filled out correctly. This generally causes havoc with reporting the scores which in turn can delay the posting of standings.
Please make sure you include the following on the game card:
