For all coaches, assistant coaches, and older youth players thinking about coaching;
USSF trusts its future to education. By choosing to endorse only their coaching education platform, USSF determines the path for soccer development in the nation. Starting early on this path can shape your future in the sport you love, perhaps in ways you don't even imagine yet.
Yakima Youth Soccer is proud to host the first USSF Grass Roots training in Central Washington on August 3rd and 4th. Space is limited to 14.YYSA will host a D license clinic in early November for the candidates that pass the Grass Roots Training and Certification this summer.
Please, before you sign up, visit the USSF Learning Center for more details on the education pathway that is part of US Youth Soccer's offering for the Yakima Valley and the pre-requisites required prior to signing up for the class. Also, don't forget to pass your background check through Washington Youth Soccer's new process - instructions are listed on our website at YYSA.org.
Registrations are open now that we have been able to determine times for the course with the instructor, and the cost is an affordable $125 for the weekend.
Please click on Available Programs after you login to your YYSA account to find registration for the class there.
We are anticipating one more date in the late Summer/early Fall for 4 Aside training to complete the Grass Roots curriculum, and one more set of dates in the early Spring for all four components of the curriculum prior to our Spring season.
If you are a recreational coach you are not requred to take this course, but you are required to attend at least 1 one-hour refresher symposium provided by YYSA Clubs in Selah, Grandview, Sunnyside, Toppenish, Wapato and East Valley may request a 1 hour symposium at their fields arranged through the YYSA office to better serve their coaches and interested candidates. 2019-20 Coaches in Yakima South, Central, North and West can attend any of the Friday symposiums at SOZO in August, 6:30 pm, on fields TBD. Please contact the office for further details on recreational soccer education for the 2019-20 season.
