How to become a Coach or Team Manager

To get started, here are the two training certifications that are required for all team admins and coaches.  These certifications are mandated by the US Congress and the State of Utah to protect our children.  Upon completion of these courses, upload your certificates and register as a coach at Ogden Soccer.

1. CDC Heads Up Concussion - This free online course teaches coaches how to recognize and react to potential concussions as well as how to manage athletes'.  It will take 20-30 minutes to complete.  Don't forget to save a copy of your certificate to upload when you register as a coach.

2. SafeSport - This online course is paid for by US Soccer so there is no cost to Ogden Soccer's members. Begin by creating an account and listing a membership with US Soccer.  Use access code YC3E-6P5G-YYIL-CS2M and select the course titled "SafeSport Trained." It's broken into 3 modules and lasts approximately 90 minutes (total). You can stop as needed and it will save your progress.  You'll receive a certificate for each module and a 4th one for completing the entire course.  Be sure to save a copy of course completion certificate to upload when you register as a coach.

Register as a Coach 
- This is the final and easiest step to becoming a member coach or volunteer with Ogden Soccer.  Registration as a coach or volunteer is routed through Utah Youth Soccer (UYSA) to insure data security.  Registration will take about 5-10 minutes.  To complete the process, you'll need to upload a clear photo of your face (no hats or sunglasses) as well as your certificates for completing the Heads Up and SafeSport courses.
