District 7 Coaching Policy
District VII Coaching Policy (Proposed changes 05/09/2012)
All adult passes processed for Competitive Play rosters must meet the following minimum requirements:
1. U-9 through U-12 must have an “F” coaching license.
2. U-13 through U-14 must have an “F” coaching license in first year and a CYSA “E” or USSF “E” in subsequent years.
3. U-15 through U-19 must have a CYSA E/D coaching license or USSF E.
In addition, all coaches must meet Mandatory Continuing Education (“MCE”) requirements each year after completing the F license by taking an approve module, clinic, referee course or higher license. For example, Coach X completes the F course August 2012. By next year (August 2013), Coach X can meet her MCE requirement by taking a module from an approve list (first aid, CPR, online) provided by D7. Coach X may also take the USSF E course and that fulfills her MCE requirement. Coach X also can take referee course to meet MCE requirement. Now in August 2014, Coach X can take USSF D or just keep taking modules or clinics.
