AYSO Area 3/T Training - Spring 2018 Super Camps

AYSO Area 3/T Regional Commissioners and Board Members
Hopefully this winter weather will be done and all electric services will be restored very soon as once again the Armonk Region 204 led by Regional Commissioner, Kevin Landesman, is hosting our 3/T Spring Super Camp on March 23 and 24 at the H. C. Crittenden Middle School, 10 MacDonald Avenue, Armonk, NY 10504, West off I-684 Exit 3. Thank you, Kevin!

Additionally on Friday night, Chris Mattoni, Mt Pleasant Region 221 RC and Coach Instructor, has arranged for a Positive Coaching Alliance session to help coaches learn and improve more positive coaching techniques for use with their players, parents and referees.
Thank you, Chris!

We are hosting the Coach and Referee courses which are listed below and in with the same descriptive course names beginning with "Area 3/T...". See the registration info in the box below this one.

If needed, you or your Coach and Ref Administrators may register your volunteers for a course in AYSOU if your volunteers have logged into AYSOU at least one time with their username and password. A volunteer cannot get credit for a course and the legal protection this conveys if he/she does not login into AYSOU at least one time.

Please advise your Coaches, Refs and any demonstration players that shoes with any type of CLEATS are not allowed to be worn in school buildings or gyms. Only suitable indoor sports shoes or sneakers may be worn in the gym. Violations will not be tolerated as they could lose us future use privileges at the Armonk schools. Classrooms, gym and fields should be cleaned up and left as we found them or better.

Demonstration players are needed for our coaching courses as listed below. The first coaches to contact Andy Hongell in advance to register with him the number of their demonstration players they plan to have attend their field clinic session(s) will get the available spots. Players may attend the classroom portion of the course with their coach, if needed.

Instructions for Registering for AYSO Training Courses

Instructions for Registering for AYSO Training Courses

AYSOU provides a wealth of soccer related training for free for registered volunteers. You can reach online courses and
content anytime, anywhere. In addition, Live Courses for coaches can be scheduled here.  


1.    Before taking a course, an individual must be a registered volunteer in the new AYSO Blue Sombrero (BSB) system for the region for the current membership year which they intend to volunteer. This is the same ID/password which you may have registered your child or coach volunteering.

2.    After that, to register for in-person or online training, use the new AYSOU system as follows:

·         If you are already a Registered AYSO Volunteer, please click here to login to AYSOU SSO directly (it will pull in your login credentials so you don't have to type them). Otherwise, go to and login with your AYSO ID and password.

·         Click on "Live Courses" in the top red menu bar

·         Select the training or live training date, depending on your preference.

·         Click on the "Sessions" Button for the course(s) you are interested in. You may need to scroll down to see all of the courses.
          The following courses are offered:

o Coach: 6U Coach, 8U Coach, 10U Coach, 12U Coach, Intermediate Coach (14U)

o Referee: Regional Referee, Regional Referee Online Companion, 8U Official

o Management: Regional Board Member Training

·         Finally, scroll down through all of the courses (or search for the word Valhalla) to find the local course. Make sure you select the right date! Pay attention to the course location and start time. Please plan to arrive 30 minutes early.

·         If you are confused, select the "My Courses" tab, and open the "How-To’s for Volunteers" tutorial on How to Register for a live Course Session.


3.    For courses in the H.C. Crittenden Middle School - 10 MacDonald Ave, Armonk, NY 10504, from 684: Exit 3 (Armonk, Route 22). Take Route 22 South. At 1st light, turn right onto Maple Avenue. At next light, turn right onto Bedford Road. Turn left (McDonald Avenue) into H.C. Crittenden Middle School parking lot. Alternatively, from Route 120: Turn onto Route 22 North. At the 2nd light, turn left onto Maple Avenue, continue as above from 684.

4.    All Coaching courses include a field session. Coaches should dress like a coach and be prepared to be on a field or in a gym in case of bad weather.

5.    For live training, players are needed/advised for the field sessions in each course and our Coach Administrator, will provide further details to as needed for live sessions. Live instructor led coaching courses with players for field sessions provide a better learning experience for coaches. New coaching candidates get to practice coaching using players with guidance and feedback from our certified coach instructors. With an online course, coaching candidates don't get this hands on experience.

6.    Coaching Candidates for 14U/Intermediate must first complete a pre-requisite course on AYSOU called "AYSO's Online Summary of the Laws of the Game". Candidates must also be a 12U coach already to receive post-course certification. The live Regional Board Member Training course provides general Regional management and job specific information for all Regional volunteers except the RC, RCA, RRA, CVPA, Safety Director, Treasurer, or Registrar.
