Plymouth Youth Soccer coaching selection policy


All coaching positions are seasonal and the PYSA board reviews all positions at the start of each season to ensure that Massachusetts SAFE soccer / CORI information is current, Zero Tolerance and Code of Conduct policies are being adhered to, that no policy violations have occurred. Returning head coaches from the previous season have first right of refusal if returning and coaching the same gender and age group as the prior season, unless there are complaints that need to be reviewed by the board. If there are not enough teams to allow all returning head coaches to retain their position, the coach that the board deems to be the most qualified, will be the head coach and the other candidate(s) will be assistant coaches. To determine a coach’s qualifications, the Board will consider:


  •  Ability to work well with children
  •  Overall coaching experience
  •  Coaching certifications/licenses
  •  Overall contribution to the league and the association
  •  For Division 1 tryout teams it is preferred that coaches primary focus is on the PYSA club


If there are no returning coaches at the age level, we look at PYSA coaches from the prior season moving up into the age group. When a coach moves up from one level to the next, they will retain their position as a head coach in the new age group. If multiple coaches move up, the process for multiple coaches returning in an age group will be used to determine the head coach.
If we have no returning coaches and no coaches moving up, we look to those who have volunteered to coach. For coaching volunteers, we look at:


  •  Prior PYSA coaching experience (i.e. coached at younger age groups but haven’t coached in the past season or two)
  •  Coaching experience in other leagues (i.e. HS, other town leagues)
  •  Overall coaching experience
  •  Coaching certifications/licenses
  •  Overall contribution to the league and the association
  •  For Division 1 tryout teams it is preferred that coaches primary focus is on the PYSA club


Plymouth Youth Soccer’s tryout program requires all coaches that express interest in our Grades 5-8 tryout program to provide their resume of experience related to coaching youth soccer..
