Welcome to Central Torrance AYSO Region 15


Without Volunteer  Coaches There Are No Teams

Why should you become an AYSO Coach?

Coaching children is a very rewarding experience. And coaching your own child’s team can be one of the most rewarding experiences of all! Coaches are pivotal to having children get the AYSO experience. If Regions don’t have enough coaches, registration is scaled back and kids who want to play in AYSO are turned away.

Do you have little or no experience with soccer? No problem! AYSO will teach you, based on the age level you are coaching. Unique age-appropriate coach training is one of AYSO’s specialties. If you plan to be at your child’s soccer practices and games, you’ll also have time to be your child’s coach.

To become an AYSO coach or Assistant Coach , you must be certified in the age level you are coaching. Certification takes a few easy steps. First, pick the position that you want to volunteer for on your Sports Connect account (same account you register your player). Then attend a short Safe Haven™ course, Concussion Awareness course and Sudden Cardiac Arrest course online. Lastly, you must attend a brief age-specific coaching course. It’s only a few hours.

All online courses can be found at
6U – Online Course
7U/8U – Online Course
10U – Online Course + Field class, sign up on AYSOU.
12U – In class and field work, sign up on AYSOU.
14U – Intermediate Course, sign up on AYSOU.
16U/19U – Advances Course, sign up on AYSOU.

Coaches are essential to the game. They teach children soccer skills and help develop a healthy, positive attitude, teamwork and good sportsmanship. Coaching is a rewarding experience because you have the opportunity to build a child’s self-esteem, help them learn new skills and just have a lot of fun.

To coach your child’s team you can check the coach box at your players registration and/or contact your division coordinator (email addresses on the About us, board member tab) .  And if you have any questions or just want to say “Hi” contact me – your coach administrator
