Coaches - 2019



Soccer Coaches!

  RYSA needs your expertise, energy and enthusiasm for coaching soccer.  

Our local kids benefit greatly when you volunteer your time and energy teaching them fitness, teamwork and skills. 

We are looking for coaches for our 2019 Spring House League.  

With over 300 children playing soccer in Revelstoke, we require a large number of volunteer coaches to assist us in providing a fun, quality soccer program.  

Main coach, co-coach and assistant coach options are available.  

Our Spring House season runs for 8 weeks from the beginning of May until the end of June.  Some positions are for only one day per week (Wednesdays) and other are for two days per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays).

If you are interested in coaching, please direct any questions to rysaheadcoach@gmail.com or register online here:

Spring Coaching Courses

BC Soccer is now mandating age-appropriate coach training for all coaches.

If our Revelstoke dates do not work for you, courses are also available in Salmon Arm, Vernon, Kamloops, and Kelowna and RYSA will do its best to assist coaches to attend the appropriate course.

RYSA Coaches courses are coming up in April.  This year we are offering Active Start and Fundamentals free of charge to all of our RYSA volunteer coaches.  Here are the details for each upcoming course:


ACTIVE START (Ideal for coaches of U4-U6)

Saturday April 13th from 3:00 - 6:30pm

At this stage, players should participate in stimulating practices and games that develop basic technical skills in a FUN atmosphere. The emphasis should be movement exercises and games that promote a feel for the ball while teaching basic principles of play within a fun but structured setting. Informal games can be set up at the end of practices or as part of a jamboree mixing exercising and games. Play equal time and try all team positions, including goalkeeper, and equal time should be allotted to practices and game.


FUNDAMENTALS (Ideal for coaches of U7-U10)

Sunday April 14th from 10:30am - 6:30pm

At this stage, players should participate in stimulating practices and games that develop basic technical skills in a FUN atmosphere. The emphasis should be movement exercises and games that promote a feel for the ball while teaching basic principles of play within a fun but structured setting. Mini game formats are used, ranging from 3v3 to 5v5 and a basic league schedule can be created but no standings should be kept. All players should play equal time and try all team positions, including goalkeeper, and equal time should be allotted to practices and games.



Coaches must register for each course online at www.coachcentre.ca.  Please sign up as soon as possible to ensure that we have enough interest for these courses to run!
