Be sure to pick up a copy of our own coaching guide at the YSA office or at one of our coaching meetings/training sessions before the season. It's full of games and exercises to do with the kids and many helpful hints to guide you through your season as a YSA coach.

YSA is always in need of coaches and assistant coaches.  If you are interested please email the office.

  • Coach & Assistant Coach:  No experience necessary.  Set weekly team practice schedule and organize age-appropriate practice drills to teach players basic soccer skills, rules and good sportsmanship.  Coaches of K – 3rd grade teams share referee responsibilities for their games.  YSA provides an informational coaches’ meeting at the beginning of the season.  Additional coaching resources are available via links on the YSA website ( www.ysasoccer.org) .  All volunteer Coach and Assistant Coach positions are subject to criminal background checks pursuant to the SAY National Volunteer Screening Policy.
