Step by Step Coaching Requirements
If you are on this page you have already commited to coaching and the below steps are mandatory to become a coach for YVYSO. These steps do take time but are required by Federal Law, State Law or Cal South Regulations. All of these steps are geared towards creating a safe, fun and healthy atmosphere for the kids. We thank you in advance for your time. If you should have any questions please feel free to reach out to me anytime.
Director of Coaches
Step 1 - Download and fill out the Administrator form which can be found at the link below. This must be completed by coaches, assistant coaches and team parents. Once complete, please email to the email@example.com and myself firstname.lastname@example.org. This must be done by all coaches, assistant coaches and team parents. This must be filled out each and every season.
Step 2 - Risk management must be completed by coaches, assistant coaches and team parents. This is done by completing a LiveScan at the UPS store located on 4th St. and Yucaipa Blvd in the Stater Brothers shopping center. Tell them you need to get a Live Scan for Cal South/Yucaipa Valley Youth Soccer and they will provide you with the form to fill out, then do your fingerprint. The cost is $30 and you will be reimbursed from the league if you submit the form to the Director of Coaches, Treasurer, or Registrar.
Step 3 - Coaching License. Below is a direct link to the Cal South website. This must be completed by the head coach and any assistant coach prior to the start of the season. This course will take about 4 hours online and will cost $25. The Director of Coaches can provide a code for all NEW license applicants. This code is a 100% discount code for the cost of the online course. This will include the concussion certificate that you must upload to your Cal South profile.
You must create a Cal South profile and register to coach. The instructions will then direct you to also create a US Soccer account which can be done here: https://learning.ussoccer.com/coach
Each coach must complete all of the requirements as listed in the checklist found in the following link.
Step 4 - Once your coaching license and all necessary requirements are completed, email the Director of Coaches and inform them of the completion. Additionally, let them know which age group, practice day, and time slots you would like to coach. Also, provide the name of your Assistant Coach (if you are a Head Coach) or Head Coach (if you are an Assistant Coach). Lastly, provide the names of up to three property players you would like on your team. Head Coach and Assistant Coach children will count as property players.
