Information for Coaches
FINGERPRINTING - MANDATORY
The league and Sierra Oaks Soccer requires all coaches and assistant coaches to be fingerprinted and have a background check done (even if you are in law enforcement and have had it done recently as state and local agencies do not share fingerprint records).
We have contracted with Capital Live Scan, a local company that performs a "live scan" fingerprinting service. For more information and locations on this service, www.capitallivescan.com.
The live scan process takes about a minute and you only need to bring you legal identification (drivers license or passport). The required form is listed below. Sierra Oaks Soccer pays for the live scan service for coaches and assistant coaches.
Please send an email to Rob Sandman at email@example.com if you are NOT returning to your team this year. The Club will need to get started on replacing non-returning coaches as soon as possible.
Each year Sierra Oaks Soccer Club will host an F license coaching clinic at Sierra Oaks School. Unless you are eligible to "waive-in" as a first year coach, or only coach U6 teams, you cannot coach if you do not have your F license. Sierra Oaks Soccer Club will be paying the class fees for our Club's coaches.
Please contact our Coaching Coordinator with any questions,
Assistant Club Manager
Practice Field Selection
Each year at the Club Coaches Meeting, usually the first week of August, your Sierra Oaks Club Board will collect requests and assign practice days, times and locations according to standard practices discussed at the meeting.

Coaching clinics & Licenses
According to the RCYSL coach & referee handbook: Coaches and assistant-coaches must complete a CYSA "F" course. However, the "F" course requirement may be waived for the first coaching year, and is not required of U6 coaches (but encouraged).
The training consists of a 3 hour class room session (or on-line session) and an 6 hour outdoor session. CYSA instructors will teach you everything that you need to know to run a youth soccer team. The cost of the class & license are covered by the Club.
For coaches of older teams, we recommend getting the class 'E' license. At this level Basic Tactics and Intermediate Technique are the focus. Again, you put in the time and the Club will put in the cash.
Concussion Notification Form
CYSA has adopted a significant new concussion policy. It's important that all coaches review the new policy, keep copies of the notification form at all games and practices, and discuss the policy with your parent group. Procedures for reporting known or possible concussions are now formalized, including surrender of the player's player pass. CYSA expects all coaches to be aware of and comply with the new policy and notification process. If you have any questions, please the Club Manager or Assistant Club Manager.
