Coach Training Matrix

COACH TRAINING MATRIX

Below are the training requirements for coaches in AYSO Region 254. ALL coaches in Region 254 must take an in-person coach certification class taught by an AYSO-certified instructor.

AYSOU Online coach certification courses are NOT recognized, and will not be accepted, by Region 254 as a substitute for in-person training. However, due to COVID-19 regulations and training limitations, THIS IN-PERSON COACH TRAINING REQUIREMENT IS BEING WAIVED FOR THE 2020 MEMBERSHIP YEAR ["2020 MY"]. Specific details about changes to the training requirements for the 2020 Membership Year are marked below by the notation "*** FOR 2020 MY ONLY ***"  When normal play and training resume, the in-person training requirement for coaches will be required.

Certifications or licenses from other soccer organizations outside AYSO (such as a USSF license) are NOT recognized by Region 254 unless prior approval has been given through the AYSO Cross-Certification program. Information about cross-certification can be found here: https://www.aysovolunteers.org/ayso-coach-training-equivalency-policy/
