Steps to being a coach

Want to be a Coach?

Volunteer coaches are what make our organization work.  They are willing to give their time, knowledge, and energy to provide the opportunity for players to participate.  Every year parents or other volunteers step up to ensure that the season can happen.  We want to begin by thanking you for your willingness to consider this commitment.  We try to make it as simple as possible with step-by-step directions (below), support through our coaches Facebook group, and free lessons and clinics on how to coach.  Welcome, and let’s get started.

 

1. Start by Registering to be a coach

2. Complete the Heads Up concussion awareness training and test.  It takes about 30 minutes and helps you learn how to identify a concussion and the effects a concussion can have on developing brains.  Download and email a copy of your Certificate to the Registrar and upload a copy to your Washington Youth Soccer coaches account.  This will need to be done annually.

3. Complete the Sudden Cardiac Arrest online class.  It's free and takes about 15 minutes.  Download and email a copy of your certificate to the Registrar and upload a copy to your Washington Youth Soccer coaches account.  This will need to be completed every 3 years.

Visit the Safe Sport Webpage and complete the 90 minute training on keeping kids safe.  Register as US Soccer and the code is: YC3E-6P5G-YYIL-CS2M.  Download and email a copy of your Certificate to the Registrar and upload a copy to your Washington Youth Soccer coaches account.  This will need to be done annually.
