Coach Registration Form

Please fill out the link below if you are interested in coaching a soccer team for the Summer 2024 Season.

Background Check

Every individual who coaches for FYSA who is 18 or older must complete a background check annually. If you have coached for us previously and are unsure if you are in good standing or not please view our coach list here.

What's the time commitment?

The summer season is 8 weeks long from the beginning of June to the end of July. Practices begin the week of Memorial Day. Each division (U6-U19) has 1 practice and 1 game a week. 


One of FYSA'S main missions is accessible soccer education. We don't expect every parent or volunteer to be an expert, and we aim to make the coaching process as enjoyable as possible. We will have a full 8-week session plan available to you with all of your practices planned out. These are optional, but many find the session plans helpful or at least a good starting point. 

Coaching Incentives

Any coach that volunteers will automatically receive a flat 50% refund on their player's registration fee. Refunds are processed by FYSA staff near the halfway point of each season. You will receive an email notification of this action on your account. 

Club week

Club Week will be the week of May 20th. Club Week is an opportunity for coaches to meet their teams, and for players to pick up their pre-ordered gear or purchase it in-person. More information will be available soon. All coaches are encouraged to attend this event. 

advanced rec coach requirements & info

  • All Advanced Recreational players will go through a pre-season skills assessment. This is not a tryout, all players will be placed on a team. The skills assessment will assist us in making well balanced teams in an effort to give all players a similar playing experience. FYSA will be forming rosters for this summer season. 
  • All Advanced Rec players will have an optional training session combined with Eclipse Soccer Club on Monday evenings. Coaches do not have to attend these sessions as they will be lead by ESC staff.
  • All Advanced Rec coaches must be certified. 


Listed below are a list of certifications that we will accept. We will reimburse any coach that has coached with FYSA for 2 or more seasons, this includes 1 winter season and 1 summer season. If you have questions about which course we recommend or about reimbursements please send us an email at "". Upon completion of the course, coaches should send proof of completion by email before their team's first game. 





These are courses that often require in-person training , we do not recommend these for new coaches as they are in-person and not offered locally. However, if you have completed 1 of these licenses prior then we will accept it. Please send proof of completion to "".
