“A good coach will make his players see what they can be rather than what they are.”
–Ara Parasheghian

Coaches play an very important part in all AYSO Area 1-C programs. Coaches have more interaction with players than anyone else at the Area level. Coaches are responsible for developing the physical and mental skills of their players while keeping the game enjoyable for all. Coaches possess a passion for teaching and for the game of soccer. They devote countless hours to the AYSO program and do it all for free.


Area 1-C is pleased to provide its annual Intermediate and Advanced Coaching courses the weekend of May 29-31 at the Glendale Sports Complex in Glendale.  For more information, please review the attached flyer.  You will need to log on to to register for one of these courses.  (Intermediate Course – Roster No. 201501196; Advanced Course – Roster No. 201501195).  Please make sure that you have satisfied all of the pre-requisites for the course before you register.

One of our Philosophies – Positive Coaching

by Jane Mason on October 7, 2014

Watch and listen to this video, positive coaching is important for many reasons, and I think we could all do with a reminder from time to time.

We have a Zero tolerance policy, but if we could spin everything in a positive, what an awesome experience we all would have.
