    Job description
    : to administer Coach functions within District VI.

League Coach Coordinators,

Please read all of this carefully.

I know you all have been patiently waiting for information, as have I. Things are a little different this year as CYSA transforms itself into Cal North. I strongly encourage you to become familiar with the new website. (D VI's website,, has NOT been updated yet.)

1. First of all, some of the changes to the courses:
  • The F course has been rewritten. It still costs $650, but there is a STRICT limit of 15 attendees.
  • There is a new Combo F/NSCAA course. It costs MORE, but attendees end up with TWO licenses.
    The way you register for this course is DIFFERENT too, due to the need to report to NSCAA.
    ***Please note: This course is listed FIRST on the application form
  • Do not mistake it for the original F course, which is listed lower on the list.

2. Course Descriptions can be found at: Go to Coaching, then to Course Calendar (go figure), and you will see the courses and their descriptions. Course Calendar:

3. Registration for all courses (EXCEPT for the Combo course) are handled the same way as in the past. The Course Application form can be found at: On the main Cal North page, at the top of the page, there is a little yellow "splotch" to the right of the words "California Youth Soccer Association" - it is for Forms and Documents. OR you can scroll half-way down the main page to the larger yellow box that says "Document and Forms Center".

Once here, in the "Filter by Category" drop-down, enter "Coaching Forms" and hit the Search button. The NEW Coaching Course Application form is listed there. (not sure if this link will take you directly there, but the above instructions work fine.)

4. CYSA is still CYSA, in spite of the name Cal North. Therefore, checks should still be made out to CYSA.
