Coach Information
Coaching a HS Rec Soccer team can be a very rewarding experience! The ability to help our young players stay active and involved, play the world's greatest sport, and enjoy the social nature of our teams.

Coach Pledge & Agreement

Fall/Spring Coach Registration
All Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Team Managers must register with HS Coed to participate with the team. Anyone involved with our teams must go through a background check that is done automatically when you register with us. Coaches are also required to complete an annual SafeSport certification. We require at least 2 adults to coach each team. Coaches need to register for Freshman/Sophomore Division (U15/16), for the Junior/Senior Division.

HS Coed League Rules
Carry a copy of these in your team notebook to reference at games. Coaches can help referees, coaches, and players abide by all of these rules. In your registration you will be asked about game schedule requests, and all schedule requests are due at that time. You need to consider school events like retreats, dances, etc. as well as SAT/ACT testing. Schedule requests that aren't accepted are birthday parties and Timbers/Thorns games.

Practice Schedules
We have access to Gabriel Park, April Hill, Glenhaven, Rose City Park, Montavilla Park, and Sellwood Park. The club registrar will collect practice schedule requests from coaches beginning in early August. 

Game Schedules

Game schedules will be released one to weeks prior to the first game date of each season. If you have schedule requests, please list them in your coach registration or email them to us at [email protected]

You need to provide the referee an Official Game Day Roster. PYSA rules state that 50% playing time is guaranteed. Guest players are okay but must be registered to HS Coed. Any non-registered HS players are not allowed.

Team Formation

Make sure you are following the rules for which division your players are allowed to play in. More issues are created when coaches bend or break the rules on the field. Remember that you are affecting the spirit of HS Coed when you don't play within our rules.

Coaches Gear
Coaches must return all of their coaches gear when they are finished coaching for HS Coed. There is a fall coaches meeting that you will be able to return or pick up your gear at. If you cannot attend the meeting you need to arrange to pick-up/drop-off at the office, 426 NE 12th Avenue, Portland, OR 97232.

Coaches Gear Package includes: Ball Bag, 2 Game Balls, 1 Ball Pump, 2 Corner Flags, 1 Net with Bucket, 12 tall cones, 20 disc cones, Goalkeeper Jersey, Goalkeeper Gloves, med kit, ice packs, 10 bibs, net stakes, net straps

Team Notebook
Coaches need to carry a copy of each players medical release and player's pledge to all games and practices.

Team Building Events
We encourage team building events before, during, and after the season. It is a great way to break the ice for new team or help create better bonds between teammates that have already played together. Here are some ideas:
Bowling, Lazer Tag, Pot luck at someone's house, Timbers or UP games, Putt Putt golf

Coaches Meetings

Fall - TBD
Spring - TBD

Coaches Education
We encourage our coaches to attend as many coaches clinics as possible that are hosted by OYSA each fall.

HS Coed Philsophy

While we do want your players to be competitive, we do not want to sacrifice that for the safety and enjoyment of soccer for all of our players. We want coaches to keep the games in perspective and remember that this is recreational soccer and is meant for fun.
We also want to make sure that coaches are encouraging the participation and empowerment of it's female players.
Be willing to share players with other teams, we are in the same club and if we can give some players more playing time we should do so.
Encourage your players to be on time and to bring a ball to practice/games.


Contact the registrar if one of your players is seriously injured or has a concussion. Part of the club fees goes to a secondary insurance and will help cover some of the medical bills.
Remember that a player cannot return to practice or games if they have had a suspected concussion until you have gotten a medical release from their doctor. Please mail the medical release to the office at 426 NE 12th Avenue, Portland, OR 97232.

Avoiding a Blowout Game

It is the coaches responsibility to not let game scores get out of control. Here are some ideas if your team gets a large lead:
Your team must have 10 passes before they can shoot
Shoot from outside the 18 yard box
You can only score from crosses
Move players into unfamiliar positions
Put your best player at defense or on the bench
Remove a player
Stop scoring!!
