COACHES

Welcome to AYSO Region 65. We thank you for volunteering your time and service to our program.

It is important that you understand and implement AYSO's philosophy, for it is you who will have the most contact with and impact upon our young participants.

Remember that we are playing the game for fun, and for the fun of the children. While you should encourage the very best performance out of your team, never lose sight of the fact that it is just a game.

Some Things To Remember


Remember the 'Everyone Plays" rule. Every one of your player's must play at least three quarters of each game during the regular season and during the playoffs. It is suggested that the same players should not always sit out the first quarter of each game, so that they do not think of themselves as permanent substitutes.

Cooperate with the referees. They are volunteers like you and make mistakes like you. And please insist that the parents of the players maintain decorum at all times. Remember - we do not allow protests.  Hold practices, one or two a week. They mean more than the games. I strongly recommend two, depending on your own time commitments.  Make sure you know the game and the coaching techniques found to be most successful. We have available for you several publications / videos' s which ran help you, and we will hold a series of clinics to further your knowledge.

My staff and I will be glad to personally assist you in any way we ran. Have a great season and best of luck to your team!
