Hillsborough AYSO Region 110

Age-Level Certification Required

Consistent with AYSO National policy, all coaches must be certified to coach at their team’s age level.  For example, 12U coaches must be certified to the 12U level.  This applies to both head and assistant coaches.

Hillsborough AYSO provides coach training and certification courses located in Hillsborough for levels 6U through 12U.  Higher level training (Intermediate for 14U, Advanced for 16U and 19U) is provided outside our region by AYSO Area, Sectional and National programs.  Because all AYSO coach training follows a nationally mandated and standardized curriculum, you can attend any coach training event at any AYSO Region, for all age divisions, and coaches from outside Hillsborough are welcome to attend our courses.  This provides a wide range of options and dates in addition to the training offered within our Region.

The minimum coach certification level by age division is as follows:



Certification Requirement
















16U and 18U




Note that the coach training program has two elements – a classroom component and an on-field component.  You must complete both, and be signed off by the course instructor at the end of each session, to be certified. It is advisable to complete the online Safe Haven and concussion awareness courses before attending these sessions.

For the on-field portion, please wear soccer attire and bring a hat, plenty of water and sunblock.

Intermediate and Advanced Courses

Intermediate Coach (14U) and Advanced (16U and above) Coach Training courses are not currently offered in Region 110, but are offered locally within Area 2N. These courses can be found on the AYSOU website, as outlined in “How to Register for a Training Course”.  For many coaches, the best opportunity to get this training locally is at the Golden Gate Camp in Menlo Park. Golden Gate Camp will run from August 2nd through August 4th 2019.  Details and registration options are here:  GGCamp2019  Hillsborough AYSO will reimburse all fees for participants. GGC is a resident (you stay at Menlo College) program with meals so you can either choose to commute or stay. The price is the same.

Intermediate and Advanced courses are rigorous and require a significant commitment over the course of a long weekend.  Intermediate training is 15 hours, Advanced is 18 hours.

Intermediate Coach certification has a prerequisite of a 12U certificate, and Advanced Coach certification requires an Intermediate certificate. It is recommended that if you plan to attend the Intermediate or Advanced Coach training that you not only register through AYSOU but also email the designated instructor with your plans to attend.
