United Soccer of Auburn will be holding several coach orientation sessions on August 21 for head and assistant coaches for age groups U4, U5, U6 and Travel.  (U8 will be at a different time)

Please read below carefully for the correct time for your age group(s).

Travel Coach Orientation & Tactics
Sunday, August 21 at 1pm
1pm at Pakachoag Church

This is primarily for new travel coaches, but returning coaches will benefit from updates to MAYS/Mass Youth Soccer rules, age groups, etc. Just a quick note, these sessions are not mandatory, but we will cover important league information.  United Soccer of Auburn will forfeit and/or get fined if we violate some of these rules.  We paid $125 in fines in spring 2016 and 4 of those 5 fines were to teams who did not have a coach representative at the spring training session. Don’t be “that guy.”

We will cover:

  • SportsManager
  • Rosters
  • Pass cards
  • Mass Youth registration/CORI process
  • Codes of conduct

The classroom session will last about 45 minutes, and then coaches may attend a tactics and strategy session with Leo Miranda outside on the Pappas Pavilion Field.

  • Practice plans
  • Coach training resources
  • Mass Youth registration/CORI process
  • Codes of conduct

The classroom session will last about 45 minutes, and then coaches may attend a hands-on training outside, where we will cover activities you may use with these age groups.
