Coaching with the Rondout Soccer Club

We are always looking for coaches!

You do not need prior experience to coach, in particular in the younger divisions (U4 – U8).

If you are interested but do not feel comfortable with your knowledge of the game, we offer mentoring assistance for new coaches. If you'd like to start, would like a mentor, or if you'd like to mentor please contact our Coach Administrator at [email protected].

What coaches work together to do

  • You’re assigned one team and coach at least one practice per week + game day (about 2 hrs/week)
  • Assist with training during practices, working with lead coaches for each division
  • Manage Saturday morning games (always scheduled between 8-12)
  • Handle team communications, whether by text, email or phone

To become a coach, we'll help you do the following

  • Register as an AYSO volunteer annually via Sports Connect
  • Take AYSO Safe Haven training for Coaches once
  • Attend the Coaches Meeting in early August (for fall season) and early April (for spring season)
  • If you are volunteering to be a Head Coach and you want to select your Assistant Coach, send the request to [email protected] after you have both registered as volunteers

The Board assists with all organizational aspects of club on and off season, attends once-a-month meetings during the season and additional 1-2 hrs per month of administrative assistance.

AYSO’s Safe Haven: Keeping AYSO Players and Volunteers Safe

We take the safety of our athletes seriously. Precautions are taken on the field to prevent physical injuries, and precautions are taken off the field to ensure children and volunteers are safe in their interactions with each other.

AYSO’s Safe Haven program has been put in place to protect AYSO players and the volunteers who serve them. It requires that each AYSO volunteer complete and eSign a volunteer application every year, agreeing to background checks and to abide by the philosophies and policies of AYSO.

Every AYSO volunteer must apply and be accepted as a volunteer. Volunteers are also asked to complete Safe Haven and job specific training in order to become trained and certified. AYSO in-person or online training focuses on the best ways to work with children and important safety protocols. Becoming Safe Haven certified takes 20-30 minutes, but AYSO volunteers know it’s worth it.

Also, did you know that every AYSO Region is required to designate a volunteer to act as the Child and Volunteer Protection Advocate (CVPA)? A CVPA helps implement Safe Haven policies at the local level. Our local CVPA, is Maggie Colon.  Stop and say hello when you see her at the field!

AYSO is so proud of our Safe Haven program – it was the first of its kind in youth sports, most notably in soccer. It creates a safe environment for players and volunteers to have a happy and healthy soccer experience.
