The Coach's Clipboard
Yes. There are many options available to secure the needed training, including online courses, enabling even a last-minute volunteer to get the training that will make him/her more effective and will provide a better experience for the players and their families. All our members must know the importance AYSO assigns to properly trained coaches. For that occasional situation where the regular coach is unable to attend the game, another age-appropriately trained coach can serve as a substitute.
Contact your Section or Area Coaching Staff. They can help arrange for the instructors to provide the needed coach training courses at a place and time convenient for your Region’s volunteers.
