Soccer knowledge is a plus, but AYSO provides all of the training and materials you will need -- even someone with no prior soccer experience can become a great coach with our training and support.
Coaching in AYSO is a chance to spend quality time with your own child AND be an important role model for all the children on your team. In fact, the joy of coaching is so meaningful, that many AYSO coaches continue coaching long after their own children have moved on from AYSO.
The AYSO National Coaching Education program is the best youth soccer coaching program around and is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Coaching Education. No other national youth soccer programs in the U.S. are accredited.
Many famous soccer players got their start in AYSO. For more, please read AYSO National's extensive information about coaching.
