Coach Clinic Schedule

You may use training clinics from other AYSO Regions
 and we welcome volunteers from our neighboring Regions to our clinics. 
Thank you for volunteering.  
We look forward to seeing you at the training.

Online Training, different than clinics, can be accessed using your eAYSO ID number with this button.  This includes Safe Haven, Management, and lower division Coach and Referee courses.  It is best to take both the Online Training and the Clinic, using the online session as preparatory to the Clinic.
Palo Alto AYSO offers the Basic Referee course for u10 and u12 in two formats, for your convenience.  Either of these earns the certification.
  1. Basic Referee consisting of 3 classroom sessions
  2. Basic Referee consisting of online training at and on classroom session, the Basic Referee Companion Course
Clinics are a combination of classroom and on-field demonstration.  The higher the level of the division, the more time needed for the Clinic.  The Clinics are listed in the calendar.  Click on the Clinic to see more details.

The table below shows which Coach Certification you need.

Most clinics are free.  When not free, Palo Alto volunteers are reimbursed for pre-approved training fees.  If you have a problem signing up for a course or you are seeking pre-approval for fee reimbursement, email one of the following persons.
