Players may attend the classroom portion of the course with their coaches.

Saturday, April 1: Under Age 10 Coach Course roster #201700969, 1-5:30pm. Attending coaches or their regions collectively must arrange for ten U10 team players to attend the field clinic session from 3pm to 5pm.

Under Age 10 Field Session Only no longer available. This companion session is NOT being offered because the online course is obsolete, does not reflect the new coaching course curriculum released in 2013 and therefore is not recommended. It's much better for the kids to have their coach attend the entire new U10 Coach course listed above. Updated online Coaching courses will be available when we move to the new Blue Sombrero platform after May 1.

Area 3/T Volunteer Training Super Camp Requirements and Information notes:
1. To minimize course check-in delays, it is extremely important to have all volunteers signed up in advance in eAYSO so we can insure we have enough space and course supplies for them. Your volunteers should sign up now for the course(s) in eAYSO.org using "Sign up to Take a Class" at the bottom right on the Welcome page and a course roster number listed above if they have a current eAYSO record or after they "Apply as a New or Returning Volunteer" in eAYSO. Otherwise, Coach Administrators must sign them up using eAYSO Lookup -> Course -> Course Signup if their volunteer(s) have either record in eAYSO. If a volunteer does not have a registered record or a submitted application record in eAYSO, the volunteer cannot be signed up or get course credit until he or she applies in eAYSO and the course instructor or course contact is then notified by the volunteer, his/her RCA or RC to add the volunteer's record to the course roster and resubmit it.
2. Please make sure your coaches understand that to earn credit for a course, they must plan to arrive 15 minutes early to find parking, check-in for their course at the main entrance, get to the classroom on time, attend the entire course and pass a test with at least 70% correct answers at the end of each course. No exceptions. Those arriving late and/or leaving early are welcome to stay, participate and get whatever they can for the time they do attend, but not course credit.
3. "AYSO's Safe Haven" course and age appropriate coach training courses are required by AYSO for all volunteers including coaches, assistant coaches and Referees. "AYSO's Safe Haven" has been completely revised to address current topics such as bullying, concussions and more. This course is required now as an update for all volunteers who attended the old Safe Haven Coach or Referee courses which are no longer valid for liability protection reasons.
4. The online AYSO CDC Concussion Awareness course available at www.aysotraining.org is required for all volunteers including coaches, assistant coaches and referees.
5. Age appropriate coach training for all U6, U8, U10 U12, U14 and U16-U19 head coaches and assistant coaches is mandated by the AYSO National Board of Directors. AYSO Regions must not field teams without Safe Haven certified and age appropriately trained coaches.
6. The U6 up through U12 Coach Courses and manuals were completely revised in late spring 2013 and now include a whole season's worth of training sessions among other changes. Coaches who took the old courses are encouraged to attend the new courses which are far better and will give them eight weeks of lesson plans and will improve their coaching skills, knowledge, and experience. The old online coach courses have not been updated and are not recommended. Updated online Coaching courses will be available when we move to the new Blue Sombrero platform after May 1.
7. Coaching courses except AYSO's Safe Haven and Coach Administrator Training include clinic fieldwork. Coaches should dress like a coach, wear a coach shirt if they have one and bring pen and notepad. They and their team player(s) should bring an appropriate size soccer ball (#5 for coaches), shin guards, turf shoes or cleats, dry gym shoes with clean soles in case we have to use the school gym, water, sun protection, and big smiles.
8. The success of AYSO Coaching Program courses is dependent on having the minimum numbers of players required at the indicated clinic session times listed for each course above. Attending coaches as a group or their regions collectively must arrange for the minimum number of team players listed for each of the course clinic sessions above and register them with Andy Hongell or course must be cancelled.
9. Saturday lunches will be provided on site only for coaches, players, instructors & staff staying for courses through lunch time who contact Andy Hongell in advance.
10. Please check this page this page for updates and any revisions or corrections.
