Thank you for volunteering with the AYSO community. Each year we have over 500 volunteers supporting our 1,500+ children. We love our community and set a high bar for our volunteers. We require the following Mandatory courses for our coaches and assistant coaches.
Mandatory Volunteer Training
- Age Appropriate Coach Certification (for coaches and assistant coaches)
- Volunteer Registration for 2015
- Safe Haven Certification
Volunteer Training Registration
All volunteer training and scheduling is coordinated through the AYSO national website called eAYSO. This website is important for two key reasons:
- Personal information is kept secure. AYSO National makes sure that these protections are continually reviewed and certified, so that you can be confident whatever information you provide is handled properly.
- Volunteer Certifications and Background Checks are coordinated through this site to provide a safe and qualified group of volunteers to our programs.
To Register for a class, log into www.eayso.org.
Click Enroll to take a class. Enter San Carlos in City and the appropriate Course in Class e.g. U-8 Coach, then Search.
This will list all the available classes in San Carlos. A Search for Section 2 and Area N will list all Classes available in San Carlos and the 7 neighboring Cities.
Volunteer Training Requirements by Age Group
U-5 and U-6 Coaches:
U5 and U6 coaches are required to complete the U-6 Coach Certification, either in-person or on-line.
(Course C002 – U-6 Coach (30-40 minute course)
U8 coaches are required to complete the U-8 Coach Certification, either in-person or on-line.
(Course C003 – U-8 Coach (20-30 minute course)
U10 coaches can take the classroom part of the Course online at www.aysotraining.org but have to attend the U-10 Coach Field Session in-person, either in San Carlos or a neighboring City.
(Course C004 – U-10 Coach (30-40 minute course)
U12 coaches have to attend the in-person class as no on-line course option is available for the U-12 Coach Certification.
If you are taking a U12 Certification course from a different region, take care as most other cities offer the classroom and field portions of the U-12 Coach as separate classes and you will have to attend both to receive the course credit.
