SAYNEWS - Coaches Edition 2024

Dear SAY Coaches,


Welcome to the spring soccer season coaches! We are so very thankful for our volunteer coaches! Without you, youth soccer would not thrive in our local communities like it does today.


As we begin to prepare for the season we hope this newsletter helps jumpstart your season preparation. Continued learning, organization and preparation are some important factors in having a successful soccer season. Dig into the following resources in order to get the most out of your season.


Good luck coaches. Have a great spring season. Have fun!!

Preparing for the Spring Season: Coach Requirements

If you have volunteered to coach this coming season, we highly encourage you to visit our requirements page. All coaches need to complete SafeSport training, complete concussion training with either the CDC or NFHS and follow your local SAY program’s approved background screening process.


(Some states may have additional requirements. Check with your local area or district for more details.)

Know the Rules: Laws of the Game
