Coaching AYSO United


AYSO United coaches are placed in an environment where development is prioritized over winning and players are required to play 50% playing time. This structure ensures that coaches can develop players and teams without outside pressure as they look to create the ultimate development experience. We encourage professional growth and continued education both in AYSO, USSF and other coaching education programs. Upon successful completion, AYSO United West Michigan will reimburse our Coaching Staff’s fees paid to US Soccer or accredited coaching license entities for obtaining higher levels of coaching education. Email our Director of Coaching for more details.


AYSO United is not only a Club for Player Development, but one that also prides ourselves on continual education of our AYSO top coaches. AYSO United’s Coaching education pathway is designed to create a developmental path for our AYSO and AYSO United Coaches as we create a positive learning environment for our players. Each level within our structure allows coaches to maximize their coaching abilities while looking for other coaching challenges.
