Coaches are an integral part of Anderson Youth Soccer. All of our coaches are parents who volunteer their time and efforts to help the league's youth to enjoy their soccer experience so that they will love the game and love to play it. Not only do coaches teach them about how to play the game and help to increase their skills, coaches also inspire in them life values of fair play, good sportsmanship (how to both win and lose with grace), leadership, respect, determination, and teamwork, just to name a few. It's a highly rewarding experience to coach your child and his/her teammates. Even if you do not know anything about the game, you can still register to coach. We offer coach training clinics to get you started and help you succeed in this vital, rewarding volunteer role of coaching soccer. Contact our Coaching Coordinator and sign up today.
Anderson Youth Soccer's teams play in a recreational level league. U6 and U8 play in-house and U10 & up age groups play in the Walt Zinco Playing League (WZPL). California Youth Soccer Association (CalNorth) requires that recreational level soccer coaches:
1. Acquire a USSF grade "F" coaching license within the first year of coaching.
2. Pass a Live Scan (fingerprinting) background check.
3. Fill out and sign a "Risk Management Disclosure" form.
A USSF grade "F" coaching clinic is typically held locally in July on a Friday evening followed by a 6-hour Saturday field training session. Other locations and dates are available for registration. Click here.
