Player Registration Form

All coaches must keep a hand-signed of each Player Registration form
for all their players during all AYSO activities.

This form provides emergency treatment authorization in the event of
a sudden illness or injury and contains vital emergency contact information.
It also contains player and parent contact information and should be treated as confidential and secured appropriately.

Remember you are not babysitters
Make sure there is a parent or guardian during practice and games for every child. You are there to coach, not to watch a child.

Helpful Game Day Tips

  • Remind parents and players at practice of next game time. That way both parents and players know what time to arrive.
  • Ask parents and players to arrive at least 30 minutes before game to have players check in and assure you have game snacks available.
  • Line up players according to Jersey # and make sure you have your player registration forms and first aid kit.
  • When you are ready to enter the field, take a moment to check if fields are free of debris and/or any hazards.
  • Introduce yourself to other Coach, Assistant Coach and Referees.
  • Stay within your Coaches box during the game.
  • Make sure your players stay well hydrated.
  • Make sure to give positive encouragement and direction.
  • At end of game make sure all trash is picked up left by your team.
  • Make sure all players leave with an adult family member and/or guardian and stay until all your players have left.
  • Make sure to turn in your Game Cards to REFEREE or to the check in table.

How to Coach Your Team on Game Day

What is appropriate behavior for a soccer coach during game time?Soccer America Magazine recently came up with some tips for youth soccer coaches on how to coach effectively once the game is underway.
- Keep your comments to a minimum during the game so that it carries more weight. Give short tidbits of information to your players. Always be positive. As your players get older, you can talk to them in more detail.
 - Keep a small note pad and pen with you so that you can record your observations. This will help you to remember those key points to stress to your team moments before the game, at halftime, after the match and to guide your upcoming training sessions. Note everything from injuries to equipment needs!
 - Relax and have patience. In a very real sense you are the teacher, your players are the students and the game is the "exam." What you observe in the game will dictate what you need to work upon in future training sessions to improve upcoming "exams." All youth players (as do students) need plenty of time to develop and learn the game.
