Coaches Corner is your resource to assist you to help your players get the most from their LBYSO experience.
We aim to provide you with information on:
Cal South requires all coaches in affiliated leagues to be licensed by US Soccer. LBYSO Recreational coaches are volunteers. Anyone 18 or older (or 16-17 if supervised by an adult) is eligible to coach.
As an LBYSO Rec coach, you must complete these one time requirements.
• Cal South Admin profile setup
• US Soccer “Grassroots” online license (minimum 4v4)
• Concussion training video (included in Grassroots training)
• LiveScan background check (prior to receiving roster)
• SafeSport online training
• End of season player ratings (U8 & U10 coaches)
Have a practice and game plan. Online material, books and other coaches are among the many available sources. But it is up to you to decide what is most effective for your team to learn to work together and improve individual skills while keeping things fun.
For games refereed paid officials, always have a prepared lineup sheet. U10 and up will have certified referees and they will ask for your lineup sheet.
U12 Rec and up play Cal South Intercity League. For U12 and up, coaches download rosters from Cal South through their profile. For JUSA, game cards are available on the JUSA site.
LBYSO Recreational coaches are encouraged to seek out help to avoid carrying the entire load themselves.
