Under Age 10 Field Session Only. This companion session is NOT offered because the online course is out of date, does not reflect the new coaching course curriculum release in 2013 and is not recommended.

Attending coaches or their regions collectively must arrange for twelve U12 team players to attend the field clinic session from noon to 2:30pm.

b. Completed U12 Coach, listed in eAYSO

e. Regional Referee or Basic Referee Online Course only - if not a Regional Referee or higher, complete the online course at aysotraining.org by 8/17 and bring certificate to class.
No exceptions.
Coach Pre class work required: Becoming an Intermediate AYSO Coach requires that coaches understand a large amount of soccer material so that they can help AYSO deliver programs that enrich children's lives. Our instructor(s) will help coaches get through this course, but we need coaches to be committed to preparing for it and participating to the best of their ability.
1. This course builds upon what was learned in the new U12 course and manual introduced in 2013. Coaches must have a very strong grasp of the material delivered at the U12 level. They need to take the time between now and the start of the class to review the new U12 manual in detail or they will not be able to pass the U14 course.
2. Coaches should get a copy of the current Intermediate Coach manual or download it from aysotraining.org, read it before class and bring it with them to the class (in electronic form is OK).
3. For this course, coach attendees will need to prepare and execute a complete U14 training plan for a topic such as one of the sample topics listed below. The training plan will be similar in structure to those in the new U12 manual but at a U14 level. Additional information will be provided to coaches after they signup on the course roster in eAYSO:
Goalkeeping: - Dealing with 1v1s; - Shot stopping (including diving); - Dealing with crosses
Midfield: - Receiving and turning; - Combination plays; - Build up through midfield
Defending: - Individual defending; - zonal defending; - Defending Principals of Play
Attacking: - Attacking from wide areas; - Finishing; - Attacking principals of Play
This is all a lot of work but it does cut the old two day course class time in half to one day from what it used to be.
Attending coaches or their regions collectively must arrange for a minimum of 22 U14 team players to attend the field clinic session from 1 to 5:30pm for execution of their training plans. Course will be canceled if we don't have the minimum number of team players needed. The first coaches to contact Andy Hongell 914-552-7609, in advance to register the number of their players who plan to attend the field clinic session will get the available spots.
Players may attend the classroom portion of the course with their coaches if needed. Pepsi Field at the SW corner of E. Stephens Avenue and Lozza Drive will be used for field training session. See directions to the field.



Area 3/T Coach & Referee Super Camp Requirements and Information
1. To minimize course check-in delays, it is extremely important to get all volunteers signed up in advance in eAYSO so we can insure we have enough space and course supplies for them. Your volunteers should sign up now for the courses in eAYSO.org using MyeAYSO, enroll to take a class and Course Signup using the course roster numbers above after completing and submitting their eAYSO Profile and Volunteer Application if they have not already done so. Otherwise, Coach Administrators must sign them up using eAYSO Lookup -> Course -> Course Signup. If a volunteer does not have an eAYSO application or registered record, the volunteer cannot be signed up for a course until he or she submits an application in eAYSO.
2. Please make sure your coaches understand that to earn credit for a course, they must plan to arrive 15 minutes early to find parking, check-in for their course at the main entrance, get to the classroom on time, attend the entire course and pass a test with at least 70% correct answers at the end of each course. No exceptions. Those arriving late and/or leaving early are welcome to stay, participate and get whatever they can for the time they do attend, but not course credit.
3. Safe Haven Coach or the new "AYSO's Safe Haven" course and age appropriate coach training courses are required by AYSO for all head coaches and assistant coaches. "AYSO's Safe Haven" has been completely revised to address current topics such as bullying, concussions and more. It is recommended as an update for all coaches who attended the old Safe Haven Coach course.
4. Age appropriate coach training for all U6, U8, U10 U12 and U14 head coaches and assistant coaches is mandated by the AYSO National Board of Directors. U16-U19/Advanced Coach training is mandated for the 2015 fall season.
5. The U6 up through U12 Coach Courses and manuals were completely revised in late spring 2013 and now include a whole season's worth of training sessions among other changes. Coaches who took the old courses are encouraged to attend the new courses which are far better and will improve their coaching skills, knowledge and experience. The old online coach courses have not been updated and are not recommended.
6. Courses except AYSO's Safe Haven and Coach Administrator Training include clinic fieldwork. Coaches should dress like a coach, wear a coach shirt if they have one and bring pen and notepad. They and their team player(s) should bring an appropriate size soccer ball (#5 for coaches), shin guards, turf shoes or cleats, dry gym shoes with clean soles in case we have to use the school gym, water, sun protection, and big smiles.
7. The success of AYSO Coaching courses is dependent on having the minimum numbers of players required at the indicated clinic session times listed for each course above. Attending coaches as a group or their regions collectively must arrange for the minimum number of team players listed for each of the course clinic sessions above and register them with Andy Hongell or course must be cancelled.
8. Saturday lunches will be provided on site only for coaches, players and instructors staying for courses through lunch time.
9. Please check this page (www.aysoarea3t.org/training.html) for updates and any revisions or corrections.
