KYSC
Volunteer Coaches -
It is very important that you are registered for the "KIDS SAFE" program before the start of each season! Referees will be instructed to look for this at each team inspection before a game.

If you have not done so already, please go to GotSoccer Coach Profile login page. Click on > LOGIN under "Team & Team Officials" on the left side of the page, about half way down. From there you will enter your username and password under the INDIVIDUAL COACH area. If problems, click on Coach Account Lookup.

STYSA bylaws require all coaches to complete a minimum coaching license (Youth Module) within 1 year of beginning to coach. Failure to do so can result in being ineligible to continue coaching.


Coaches - Please do your best to make the games FUN for the players. If your team is dominating the game by more than 4 goals, possibly try some other strategies to make the game more enjoyable for both sides!



RESPECT On the Field!
Check out this YouTube video to see how NOT to behave on the sidelines.

 Coach Resources

Below we've posted some helpful links that can hopefully assist you in your role as a KYSC volunteer coach. You have taken the first step in becoming an important figure in making a difference in a child's life; helping them to learn the game of soccer, having fun, and playing with good sportsmanship!

Want to learn more about the specifics of an "Offside" call? Then click here to see a great pictorial description. (The offside rule is mainly enforced in the U11 and higher division games, however, it is also expected that at the U10 level, players start to become familiar with it.)
