Register for a Coach Course

The next coach certification classes will be held March 27-29, 2020.

Register for an in-person Coach Course

All coaches MUST register online at aysou.org to receive credit for the course. If you don't register, there is no way to credit your certifications.  To register for a coaching class:

  1. Go to AYSOU.org and log in using the same credentials as you do to log into your wssl in-league account
  2. Click on "In-Person Courses" from the top menus
  3. Choose "Coach Instructor Led Courses" by clicking on the blue "Open" button to the right of the item. You will see a list of all available in-person coach courses.
  4. Choose the coach course you want to take (e.g. 6U) and click the blue "Open" button once again. On the next page you will again see the course and to the right there will be a blue button marked "sessions" - click the blue button. It will unfortunately display every course in the country (believe us, we wish it didn't).
  5. Scroll down and just look for the date we are offering the training and then look for the WSSL course. All of our courses will say "West Side Soccer League" or "3/A/611" (which is our section, area and region) in the title.
  6. Click on the blue 'Register" button. To get the details for the class (time and place and requirements), click on the course name. The details will expand below the entry.

Online Safe Haven, CDC Concussion, and Coach Courses

The safe haven and CDC concussion courses are offered only online.

The 6U, 8U and 10U courses are also offered online. As there are specific WSSL nuances, we recommend all coaches take the in-person course. However, if you are not able to attend in-person, you may take the course online and take the in-person field session the following season. The 12U and Intermediate coach classes are only offered in-person. 

To take a course online:

  1. Go to AYSOU.org and log in using the same credentials as you do to log into your wssl in-league account
  2. Click on "Online Courses" from the top menus
  3. Choose the coach course you want to take (e.g. 6U, Safe Haven, CDC Concussion) and click the blue "Open" button to the right. 
  4. Click the blue "Launch" button to begin the online training.

For Safe Haven and Coach courses, all modules for each course must be taken for the course to be considered complete.
