Mother Lode Youth Soccer League

Coach Requirements

Mother Lode Youth Soccer League (MLYSL) welcomes and appreciates our volunteer coaches.

MLYSL requires our volunteers to pass a Live Scan background check. Please see our 2018 Season Information page for Live Scan dates. You will need to bring a government issued photo ID.

Pursuant to California State Law, as of January 1, 2017, ALL coaches for ANY sport (including school sports), working with children under the age of 17, are required to complete concussion training provided by the Center for Disease Control. The training is offered online and available at https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/coach.html. Training takes approximately 45 minutes. Upon completion, please email a copy of your certificate to our Registrar: registrar.mlysl@gmail.com.

MLYSL also encourages coaches to complete at a minimum the Grassroots Coach Training through U.S. Soccer. Training opportunities will be made available to further this goal. Please see our 2018 Season Information page for additional information and/or contact our Coach Coordinator: coachcoordinator.mlysl@gmail.com

Thank you for taking your valuable time to volunteer with MLYSL. We would not be able to play soccer without you!
