Training Support from UK Coaches
Each team is provided an opportunity to have one of our three UK Coaches assist in a training session throughout the season. Coaches can schedule a session by emailing Gary Tsang at firstname.lastname@example.org
The three UK Coaches for the 2013 Fall season are:
UK International also provides an online curriculum to help coaches tailor a training session specific to the age and desired skills that the team wants to focus on for a specific practice. Click the link: El Segundo Curriculum for instruction s on how to access online curriculum.
U6 and U8 courses are available online at www.ayso.training.og. The U10 course has an online portion and a field portion. These courses are also offered in person at various times – these course can be completed in any Region. Coaches must pre-register for courses in eAYSO. After logging into eAYSO, select Lookup from the blue menu bar and Course from the pull down menu. Fill in the Roster Number field to go directly to the course you want.
The U8 course is required for coaching at both the U7 and U8 level. Certification for a higher age group does not satisfy the requirement for age-specific certification at a lower age group – coaches must be certified in the age appropriate division.
If you need to look for another local course, fill in CA for the state field, 1 in the Section Field, and D in the Area field. If you still don’t see a course that meets your schedule, try entering only Section 1, 10, or 11 and do not enter anything the Area field. You will see other courses that are within an hour or so drive since these Sections cover Southern California.
The Intermediate certification is required for U14 and the Advanced certification is required for the U16 & U19 Divisions
See the example below which shows how to properly fill out a Region 92 Games Card for the U10/U12/U14 Divisions
