AYSO Region 12 South Torrance


Prospective EXTRA Coaches,

Thank you for your interest in coaching an EXTRA Team. Coaching an EXTRA team is a one-year commitment starting on Aug 1st.  If interested, continue reading and scroll down to the bottom of the page and download the EXTRA coach application.

With respect to the process, our deadline is Feb. 28, 2019 to submit your EXTRA Coach Application. Verbal applications will not be recognized. You must allow the committee time to review all the applications. Please do not assume that you can become an EXTRA coach simply by default if no one else submits an application. Until you are formally approved and selected, you do not have an EXTRA team on which to offer anyone (players or Asst Coaches) a position. Teams will only be formed if a qualified coach is approved by the Board for the division, and then only if a competitive team can be formed based on the skill level of the players that tryout and commit to the team.

Assistant Coaches will be screened and selected from the Head Coach applications. They will need to meet the same standards, and follow the same guidelines as the Head Coach to qualify. Applicants not initially offered an EXTRA team will receive first consideration for Assistant Coaching positions in the same division.

Coaches cannot engage in any direct scouting with potential players. Unlike Select, we will be conducting open assessments. Players must tryout to play and represent Region 12 on the EXTRA team.

Thank you again for your interest in this EXTRA program. The EXTRA Team Committee will make its decision as quickly as possible and notify all applicants of its decision.

Coaches participating in EXTRA should be of excellent quality. At a minimum, EXTRA coaches (head or assistant) must:

  • Have a current Volunteer Application on file at the National Support & Training Center

  • Be an AYSO trained and certified coach as specified in these Guidelines

  • Be Safe Haven certified

  • Have taken Concussion training

  • Be an active participant in the Region’s standard primary program as an instructor, coach or Referee mentor, or other volunteer service the Region determines adequate to fulfill this requirement

  • Be in good standing with the Region, Area and/or Section and AYSO

  • Be approved by the Region board

  • Be evaluated and renewed each membership year

  • Coaches desiring to coach must have completed age specific training/certification levels as listed below:  

U10 EXTRA:  U10 Certified with a commitment to complete U12 as soon as possible.

It is strongly recommended that EXTRA program coaches be certified at least one level above the level they intend to coach.  It is also strongly recommended that coaches have continuing education each year as designed by the Region. Those wanting to coach must fill out an application and submit it for approval each year
