COACHES

A coach can be the most influential person in a child’s life. In AYSO, Positive Coaching is a fundamental philosophy because of the crucial role that a coach has. Coaching in AYSO is a chance to spend quality time with your own child but you’ll also provide an important role model for all the children on your team. In fact, the joy of coaching is so meaningful, that many AYSO coaches continue coaching long after their own children have moved on from AYSO. Soccer knowledge is a plus, but AYSO provides training and materials so that even a soccer novice can coach effectively by starting in the younger age divisions.

Being a coach involves skills you probably already have in addition to specific soccer knowledge. If you are uncertain, try being an assistant coach. Our Coach Administrator will be happy to try to match you up with somebody with a little more experience.

AYSO REGION 18 TRAINING SUPPORT 

We are excited to commence another fantastic season of fall soccer here in Region 18. Our goal is to provide an outstanding experience for all of our members and we have partnered with Evolution Soccer Programs to work alongside our volunteer coaches, to assist in delivering a season of great soccer and more importantly a lifetime of memories.

HOW IT WORKS - TRAINING PROGRAM - REQUEST A TRAINER

Region 18 coaches can request a trainer to join them during practice by simply emailing trainer@evosoccerprograms.com. The trainers will work with the coach and the team, towards specific training goals for each session. When you send your email please include the following information:

Age group, Day, Location, Time, Specific Topics - (Our trainers have been instructed to focus their sessions on the specific technical requirements, recommended in the age group curriculum created by AYSO)

Once we have added you to the schedule you will receive an official confirmation email of the trainer's attendance.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS CLINICS

They're back! Commencing Friday September 8th from 4:00 - 7:00 pm, the popular Friday Night Clinics will return to Region 18. The sessions will be hosted at Pennkamp Elementary School and are free to attend for AYSO Region 18 players only. Each week has a specific theme and groups will be organized according to age. Please arrive on time for your session and bring a ball and water each week. The sessions will run for 6 Fridays - with more possibly added.
