Yay! You want to coach a team.
Coaching is fun and rewarding.
For the benefit and safety of our players, and to provide you with all the tools needed for a great coaching experience, everyone who would like to be considered for a coaching position must follow the WYS Coach Checklist.
Volunteers are the heart of WYS. We hope your experience will lead to more involvement. We're always looking for new ideas to improve the soccer program in Wrentham.
WYS Coach Checklist
Annual MYS Adult Registration & CORI Certification
All WYS coaches, assistant coaches and team managers (In-Town and Travel) must register with Mass Youth Soccer every year and have a certified CORI or they cannot coach. (Our 'year' runs from Fall 2018 through Spring 2019.) Even if you have been CORI certified through another organization (e.g., Wrentham Public Schools), WYS is required by Massachusetts General Law to perform a CORI certification via Mass Youth Soccer.
Follow the steps below to complete the MYS Adult Registration Process and CORI:
All coaches and assistant coaches must complete mandatory concussion training prior to coaching a team. The certification is good for 3 years in BAYS and then must be retaken.
Follow the steps below to complete your mandatory concussion training:
Soccer licenses are optional but highly recommended. Mass Youth Soccer Association provides training for G and F courses. WYS will reimburse license fees (with prior approval).
Why should I get a license?
- Learn about soccer
- Be a better coach to players
- Coaches with licenses are preferred during coach selection process
- WYS reimburses fees (with prior approval)
How to get reimbursed
About the coach selection process
Players are placed on teams randomly within their division. WYS will try to accommodate requests, but please realize we need to have an equal number of players on each team. We'll do our best to make everyone happy.
Coaches are selected after all the players are placed on teams. Teams are not built around coaches. Once a team is formed, parent volunteers for the children assigned to the team will be reviewed and selected.
Coaches are selected after all the players are placed on teams. Teams are not built around coaches. Once a team is formed the WYS Board will review parent volunteers for the children assigned to the team. If there is more than one Head Coach Volunteer then the WYS Board will vote on the candidates. If no parents volunteered as Head Coach for the team an email will be sent to team parents asking for a volunteer.
