  • Know the league’s policy for thunder, lightning, and severe weather.  Practices and games will most often continue play in the rain, but never when lightning or thunder is seen or heard.
Concussion Policy

All coaches must follow this policy if during either practice or a game a player concussion is suspected:

i) the player is done for the day;

ii) the player must have a signed release form in order to return to game or practice;

iii) an injury report shall be filled out and sent to the Safety Director and to AYSO National; In short: “if in doubt, sit them out.”

No parent, coach, or referee can overrule the sitting out policy if a concussion is suspected.  For any questions about either the heading rule or the concussion policy above, please contact me

U12 & Younger Heading Banned, Concussion Awareness

Please review this information on concussion awareness and use it so that you can be informed in case a player concussion is suspected. As a result of raised concussion awareness and certain litigation, there is a major change taking place in U.S. Youth Soccer- no heading of the ball is permitted for ages 10 and below in games or practices.

This is not exclusively an AYSO rule, but one that all recreational and club youth soccer organizations in the U.S. are implementing effective immediately.  For this reason, in Core AYSO 1258 games in the U12 division and every division below U12, any intentional header should be called by the referee as a penalty resulting in an indirect kick for the opposing team.

Read the complete description of the AYSO rule for “Heading the Ball” in games and practices.

  • In addition to what’s below, there are also answers to some other common coaching questions at our “Did You Know?” page.<----- Coming Soon 

Thank you for your time and commitment to the safety or our children
