Coach Licensing

For CYA Coaches and Potential Coaches

CYA soccer strongly encourages coaches to pursue licensing as a means of improving their knowledge of soccer and their teaching skills. CYA soccer recommends that bantam and junior coaches who plan to continue coaching to obtain at least an “F” license. CYA recommends that senior coaches obtain an “E” license. “E” and “F” license courses are periodically offered by CYA free of charge. Coaches should contact their division coordinators. If a coach wishes to take an “E” or “F” license course offered by another soccer association, CYA will reimburse the coach for the cost of this training. Coaches should contact their division coordinator prior to taking this course and obtain the necessary receipts for reimbursement.

CYA soccer strongly supports coaches who wish to obtain coaching licenses beyond the minimum recommended level. CYA may less frequently offer a “D” license course free of charge. Coaches interested in such a course should contact their division coordinator. CYA may reimburse coaches who pursue “D” or higher-level training at other soccer associations. Due to the higher cost of such courses, CYA will require that coaches obtain soccer board approval for reimbursement prior to taking the course. CYA recommends that coaches seeking reimbursement for higher level coaching courses provide a statement to the CYA soccer chairman of their intent to share the results of this training through further coaching or assistance to others in CYA soccer.
