Coach


    How do you get into aysou.org?

    First, sign in to http://ayso.bluesombrero.com/region13.

    Then, wait 30 seconds.

    Finally, go to http://aysou.org and the system should sign you in automatically.

    What if a family has more than one volunteer?

    Each volunteer, including youth referees, needs a separate account in the registration system, with a different email address for each person. Then, you will be able to register for classes with http://aysou.org.

    In the registration system, you can add a “secondary email address” so that you all receive notices.


    Five Steps to Be a Coach

    Thank you for becoming a COACH for our kids in AYSO Region 13!

    Please follow these five steps to ensure that you will provide a world-class experience for our children.

    1. Submit an AYSO Volunteer Application for MY2019.

    Every volunteer (coach, referee, board member, team parent, etc.) submits one National Volunteer Application each year (annually). These applications are delivered to AYSO’s national headquarters for an annual background check, which screens for volunteers’ suitability to work with children for AYSO. (For extra instructions, you can follow these helpful tips to submit your volunteer application.)

    1. Get trained and certified to be a coach. (note – in Region 13, all Coaches must complete courses in person. Online Courses are not applicable)

    – to coach 6U: 6U Coaching Course (in-person, not online)

    – to coach 7U and 8U: 8U Coaching Course (in-person, not online)

    – to coach 10U: 10U Coaching Course (in-person, not online)

    – to coach 12U: 12U Coaching Course (in-person, not online)

    – to coach 14U: Intermediate Coaching Course (must have 12U course and a year coaching 12U)

    – to coach 16U or 19U: Advanced Coaching Course (must have Intermediate certification)

    You can take these courses anywhere in the country — but we recommend Region 13 because our training encompasses our region’s unique culture. In 2019, Region 13 is holding 6U, 8U, 10U, and 12U courses on July 27 and August 24. Save the dates! More details below

    1. Complete AYSO’s Concussion Awareness class (online): You must have submitted your National Volunteer Application before you can access the information.
      1. Go to AYSO’s online training center (AYSO U) with this link: http://www.aysou.org
      2. Enter your login information from Blue Sombrero.
      3. In AYSO, click on “My Courses” and choose “CDC Concussion Course”.
    2. Complete AYSOs Safe Haven training: All coaches must take AYSOs Safe Haven course in person. The online version of this course is NOT sufficient. We will require you to complete Safe Haven prior to receiving team contact information and prior to holding team practice, so please take the course at your earliest convenience.

    Note to longtime coaches: If you took Safe Haven before 2012, you will need to update your Safe Haven credentials by taking the new version of the class. Looking at your course transcript history (in eAYSO or AYSOU), you will satisfy this requirement if your transcript shows credit for the class entitled, “AYSOs Safe Haven”.

    1. Register your player at https://ayso.bluesombrero.com/Default.aspx?tabid=797328 and check the boxes that say, “Coach.” If you forgot to do that, email the Division Coach Administrator for your player’s division.

    With any questions: Please contact Taj Chiu, Regional Coach Administrator, at coach@ayso13.org. You may also contact your Division Coach Administrator.

    AYSOs Safe Haven Training

    Immediately after the coach training

    Coaches have to take “AYSO Safe Haven” class, once, in-person. Register for this at AYSOU.org when you register for the coaching class. Referees and Team Managers can take the online version of the class at AYSOU.org. If you took Safe Haven a long time ago, you probably need to take it again.

    If you can’t attend one of the dates Region 13 is offering the class you need,

    then you can take it in any other region. Search in AYSOU.org for options.

    Questions: Please contact Taj Chiu at coach@ayso13.org. You may also contact your Division Coach Administrator.
