I am constantly being asked about individuals. The only way to win is as a team. Football is not about one or two or three star players. - Pele

Coach Selection Policy

Returning head coaches from the previous season has first right of refusal if returning and coaching the same gender and age group as the prior season, unless there are complaints that need to be reviewed by the board. If there are not enough teams to allow all returning head coaches to retain their position, the coach the board deems to be the most qualified, will be the head coach and the other candidate(s) will be assistant coaches. To determine a coach’s qualifications, the Board will consider:

  • Overall coaching experience

  • Coaching certifications/licenses

  • Overall contribution to the league


If there are no returning coaches at the age level, we look at RYS coaches from the prior season moving up into the age group. Generally, when a coach moves up from one level to the next, they will retain their position as a head coach in the new age group. If multiple coaches move up, the process for multiple coaches returning in an age group will be used to determine the head coach.


If we have no returning coaches and no coaches moving up, we look to those who have volunteered to coach. For coaching volunteers, we look at:

  • Prior RYS coaching experience (i.e. coached at younger age groups but haven’t coached in the past season or two)

  • Coaching experience in other leagues (i.e. Mountain Club, other town leagues, club teams)

  • Overall coaching experience

  • Coaching certifications/licenses

  • Overall contribution to the league

  • Whether or not a coach has a child playing in the age group (parents of players will generally be given preference assuming their experience and knowledge is reasonably like that of other interested individuals)
