For those of you who have signed up to be a coach, you need to do the following to be ready:
1 • Register as an AYSO volunteer (an annual requirement) at www.eAYSO.org.
2 • Take AYSO Safe Haven training for Coaches (a one-time requirement).
3 • Attend the Coaches Meeting in early June.
4 • The training is a two part program: coaches need to attend an in-class and an on-field session for the level they are coaching in order to be certified.
5 • If you are volunteering to be a Head Coach and you want someone special to be your assistant, please see the FAQ question on how to do this.

The league requires coaches to fill out line up cards prior to the start of the game. The line-up cards are provided to the referees of the match so they can record player participation, goals scored and general conduct of the players and coaches. Each coach will be provided a batch of blank line-up cards when uniforms are passed out. However, for your convenience, you can download an Excel version of the line up card by clicking this link. Please try to print the cards on thick card stock as it helps the referees manage the paperwork during the game.
Hosting a UK Soccer Coach
Every year, we need volunteers to host our UK Soccer Trainers. It is a great experience to get to know these young men and women. The attached flyer provides more details about the program. If you have room, please contact Kieran Brennan for more information.
