Making A Difference In Children's Lives

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. Your Region's Coach Administrator will be happy to try to match you up with somebody with a little more experience.


Concussion Safety

On June 9, 2011, Alabama governor Robert Bentley signed the state's youth sports concussion safety bill into law.

The Alabama law requires:

each sports or recreational organization to create a concussion and head injury information sheet that athletes and parents must sign each year;

each sports or recreational organization to give coaches annual training on how to recognize the symptoms of a concussion and the proper medical treatment; and that a youth athlete who is suspected of having suffered a concussion during a practice or a game be immediately taken out of play and not allowed to return until he or she gets written clearance from a doctor with concussion training and expertise.

All of the information and materials needed to comply with this law can be obtained here.
