Thank you for volunteering to coach. WYSA could not exist as an organization without volunteers like you. If you are interested in coaching this season please use the on-line registration so that you can be properly affiliated (insured) with Mass Youth Soccer Association. This is not the same as the CORI process. See below for CORI information.
WYSA tries to place all coaches interested in coaching. Some divisions are able to use all the coaches who volunteer, other divisions may have more coaches sign up than can possibly be placed, even for those who coached in previous years. Coaches will be contacted prior to the start of the season. Preference is given to coaches who are licensed. Click here for information on the Coach License Courses. Coaches will be assigned to the same team as their child.
You will also need to register with Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association as an adult and register for a CORI check if you do not have a current CORI with MA Youth Soccer. Click here for instructions to register with MA Youth Soccer.
