Temple City AYSO Region 98


Hello! I'm Jeff Hsu and I'm your Coach Administrator. My job is to recruit coaches and support them throughout the season to insure that each team has a great experience. 

Like all types of volunteers, coaches are extremely important to our program. Without coaches, we can't form teams. And without teams, we are forced to turn away kids who signed up to play. If you have questions about anything relating to coaches and coaching, contact me or come find me on the field. Read below for more info on how to become a coach and the benefits that come with it. (My favorite is being able to set your own practice schedule!)

Below are announcements regarding some of the programs that are active or that we are in the process of preparing for.


Thinking of Becoming a Coach?

Coaching children is a very rewarding experience. And coaching your own child's team can be one of the most rewarding experiences of all! Coaches are pivotal to having children get the AYSO experience. If Regions don't have enough coaches, registration is scaled back and kids who want to play in AYSO are turned away.

Do you have little or no experience with soccer? No problem! AYSO will teach you, based on the age level you are coaching. Unique age-appropriate coach training is one of AYSO's specialties. If you plan to be at your child's soccer practices and games, you'll also have time to be your child's coach.

To become an AYSO coach, you must be certified in the age level you are coaching. Certification takes three easy steps. First, fill out a volunteer form. Then either attend a short Safe Haven™ course in person or online. Lastly, you must attend a brief age-specific coaching course. It's only a few hours. We also have brand new Coaching Manuals that help you with training plans and activities for the age you are coaching. 

Coaches are essential to the game. They teach children soccer skills and help develop a healthy, positive attitude, teamwork and good sportsmanship. Coaching is a rewarding experience because you have the opportunity to build a child's self-esteem, help them learn new skills and just have a lot of fun.

Contact our Coach Administrator, Victor Sanchez, or Regional Commissioner, Albert Ramirez, if you are ready to become a coach.
