Coaches must have a current volunteer form on file. Coaches will not receive their rosters until they have completed a volunteer form. Coaches must be Safe Haven certified and they will not receive their team’s uniforms until they have completed the AYSO Safe Haven course. Coaches must be age specific certified by the date specified by Section 10 (usually the first Saturday in October). Your Division Coordinator will advise you of this deadline. Teams without a certified coach by the deadline will not be permitted to participate in Region, Area, or Section playoffs.
