Region 76 has always encouraged coaches, whether head coaches or assistant coaches, to attend clinics to improve their skills as coaches. Our goal is for every coach to have received training appropriate to the division in which they coach and also certain universal training applicable to all coaches. The training requirements are mandatory, as is compliance with AYSO's Safe Haven and CDC Concussion Awareness program. These requirements apply to both head and assistant coaches.
Our region is implementing the cerfication requirements below for all coaches and assistant coaches. Division directors may request waivers from the Regional Coach Administrator but our intention is not to grant them except in rare or unusual circumstances.
All coaches must be certified in the age division they will be coaching. A higher age division coach certification will not allow you to coach a lower age division. This is achieved by taking a Coach Course. You may enroll in a coach course by following the directions below.
