VOLUNTEER COACHES
THANK YOU for volunteering to be your team's coach!

Here's a checklist and helpful tips to help you get started:

  1. Go to volunteer at your account screen and complete a volunteer form
  2. Go to www.aysou.org and take the online training for safe haven; concussions
  3. Contact your coach administrator to get access to your specific coach division training materials
  4. Notify us at [email protected] once your training is complete so that we can assign you to your team.  
  5. Once you receive your team roster, you must contact all the parents of the players and introduce yourself. Let the parents know when their child’s team practice nights, times, and where the fields are located. Give the Parents your TEAM ID and the soccer club’s website address so they can look up the schedules online.  Remind parents that they must attend Meet Your Coach Night to meet you, receive uniforms and sign paperwork.
  6. Recruit a Team Parent to help you communicate with parents throughout the season.
    1. Team Parents can create and distribute a "snack and refreshments" schedule to player parents, so that each can take turns bringing refreshments for all players to share after games
  7. Contact your Assistant Coach / Co-Coach, introduce yourself and work together on a plan for the season
  8. *Coach Bag: Coaches must have the coach bag with the player forms and medical kit with them at all games and practices. Please review the contents of your coach bag before the season begins. The bag also contains cones, pennies for scrimmages, coach clipboard, and incident report forms, ( u10-and-up will have goalie shirt & gloves). You’ll also receive a soccer manual appropriate for your age division.
  9. *Region and Area Website: Let all your parents know the ARSC website address is www.ayso1236.org.  The website will have our meeting dates, game schedules, practice schedules, team contact numbers and more. So, please pass it on to everyone.  Check game schedules prior to going to your games to make sure there have been no last minute changes to the schedules.
  10. *Team Website: Each Coach/Team Parent can set up a team website. This website offers many features and will allow Coaches/Team Parents to post reminders of the team practices and games, post announcements and duties and share team photos and more.

VOLUNTEER COACH DATES TO NOTE

  2. Meet Your Coach Night
    1. All players, parents & coaches are required to attend the Meet Your Coach Night; this is where the players and parents get to meet the coach, pick up uniforms and game schedules.
    2. Coaches, work with your team parents to help distribute uniforms and get parent signatures on the player forms. 
    3. All player registration forms MUST have a wet signature on the concussion form from a parent or guardian.  This signature authorizes medical release in cases of injury, the child cannot play soccer without it.
