Coach Training & Certification

In San Carlos, age specific coach training & certification is REQUIRED for all coaches (head & assistant) through U12 prior to the start of the season each year. The courses are based on the AYSO National Coaching Program and are designed to give both new and experienced coaches age appropriate training to successfully lead a team through the Fall season. They're comprehensive, informative, fast, & fun!

Great! This sounds like fun! Now what do I do?!

Go to eAYSO to check your current certification status (Log In > View Certification > Certification > Coach &/or Safe Haven)
  • Good, eAYSO says that I'm certified to coach the age group that I signed up for at registration! I also have my Safe Haven certification and Concussion Awareness Training so I'm good to go and will wait to hear from the Division Coordinator about my team assignment for fall.
  • Well, I'm not certified to coach the age group that I signed up for at registration but I do have my Safe Haven certification and Concussion Awareness Training. What do I do now?
    • U6, U8, & U10 courses are offered online at AYSO Training. You'll need your AYSO ID # to log in & take the course. You can also sign up to take the course in person (which is A LOT more fun & interactive!) on eAYSO (Log In > Enroll > find the course).
    • U12, Intermediate (U14), & Advanced (U16/U19) courses are only offered in person. Go to eAYSO (Log In > Enroll > find the course) to enroll.
