Coaching

“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.

New IFAB Laws of the Game as of June 1

by Scott Davis on June 25, 2016

As most of us have already heard, the International Football Association Board (IFAB) released a new edition of the Laws of the Game that became effective June 1, 2016.  The release by IFAB has gotten a lot of exposure in the press and internet but the reality is there are very few changes that will effect AYSO youth matches.  That said, as dedicated coach and referee volunteers, we want to familiarize ourselves with the changes before our next practice or game.

AYSO National is conducting a series of webinars to aid training and the fall Upper Division Coach and Referee meetings will address the new edition.  If you want to get a jump on that training, take a look at the following link.  It has a lot of good information and will be updated as additional questions are asked and answered.
