Coaches are an integral part of CASL and are the backbone to the success of the players, teams, and club. All CASL teams are required to have an adult (18 or older) Head Coach and may have up to two Assistant Coaches.
Coaches are appointed by the member clubs and serve at their pleasure.
All CASL coaches must obtain their USSF Grassroots 4v4, 7v7, 9v9, or 11v11 depending on the level and age group they are coaching. As a member of CASL and a direct member of the MSYSA, US Soccer provides coaches with the opportunity to take the 'Grassroots Modules', 'D' and 'C' License courses within the State. As a member of the United Soccer Coaches (previously NSCAA), MSYSA also provides other coaching education courses, which include 4 v 4, 7 v 7, 9 v 9 & 11 v 11 Modules, Goalkeeper Levels 1 to 3, National & Advanced National Courses
Coach Financial Aid.
Subject to the limits and conditions set forth below, CASL will provide coaching financial aid to those coaches of CASL teams who obtain a USSF coaching license, or an NSCAA USC coaching diploma. The coach must be coaching a CASL affiliated team currently (in the seasonal year the licensing course is taken) or intending to coach a CASL affiliated team in the following seasonal year and have been approved to coach that team in CASL. The maximum financial aid per coach per calendar year will not exceed 50% of the tuition cost or course fee of obtaining any license or diploma. Application for financial aid must be received from the coach with a copy of the license, and be in written form submitted to the CASL Treasurer
