Vashon Soccer


Preparation for Coaching

Thank you for coaching Vashon Soccer! Please complete these 4 steps before you step on the field with the kids:

1. Complete 'volunteer' registration 
when you sign up your player or directly here:

2. Complete annual background check via WYSA Affinity You will have to click the "Registration" button, not just logging in. Washington Youth Soccer requires that volunteers over the age of 18 with direct or indirect contact on a youth player submit to an annual background check. Applicants are also required to submit a disclosure form and sign the form under penalty of perjury.

3. Complete concussion training 

4A. Complete US Soccer 4v4 Course 
(or better) at

Once you log in, navigate to the Courses tab and select the Grassroots Courses link. The 4v4 course costs $25. Once you have completed it, the club will reimburse you. Even if you are coaching an older group, this course will give you a foundation of working with kids.
4B. ---OR---Attend the Positive Coaching Alliance Training: Friday, September 21, 6 - 8 PM, McMurray Multipurpose Room
You don't coach soccer, you coach kids. This course teaches you how to communicate with kids in order to encourage and guide their love of sports. If you are new to coaching, you may not realize that this is the most challenging and important aspect of the job.

Volunteers Under Age 18
If the volunteer is under age 18, a parent/guardian will be required to verify the minor’s age and application form. Minors are required to complete a Minor Disclosure Form that must be signed by both the minor and the parent/guardian. Minors are also required to submit a letter of recommendation from an adult. No applicant is permitted to have unsupervised contact with a Washington Youth Soccer youth player until their application is approved. To complete your application, submit the Agreement form and provide the necessary information through Affinity for the background check. Please visit:
