Coaches

SYSA values its volunteer and professional coaches.  We know that our programs would not succeed without the generous donation of time and energy that every volunteer coach gives to their team.  Our Coaches spend a significant chunk of time on the field with our kids every week, not including the time spent planning practices, communicating with their teams and traveling to and from games and practices.  

We reward our volunteer coaches in our Challenge and Travel programs with a partial refund of their child's league registration fee 
  • Competitive team = $300, for teams with all volunteer coaches, may be lower for teams with pro coaches.
  • Recreational team = $180
on the team that they are coaching for Fall & Spring seasons. Additionally that player is eligible for a reduced rate for indoor soccer if their parent is coaching their team.


COACH REQUIREMENTS 

  • Concussion Certification: To comply with Ohio's Return to Play Law, all coaches must complete Concussion Training every 3 years.  Coaches are responsible for keeping their certificates current within the 3 year window.  Coaches should keep their certificate in their team bag, as they are required for tournament play, and referees may ask to see it.  Complete or renew your concussion certificate.
  • Sideline Sports Doc: All coaches and staff members registering with US Club Soccer (Ohio Travel Soccer League) must complete the Sideline Sports Doc online course each time a background check is required (approximately every two years). The confirmation number you receive upon course completion must be entered into the background screening application in order to proceed. Take the course
