Coaching Education Courses

To coach a team playing in SJSL, all head and assistant coaches must hold a coaching license or coaching certificate. For the 2018-2019 seasonal year, SJSL will recognize the NJYS state F or E certificates, or the USSF national licenses accompanied by the Rutgers Safety course certificate. ALL coaches must complete the Google form indicating that they hold a valid coaching license, and a copy of the license must be uploaded to coach in the Fall 2018 season.

For all new coaches, SJSL has designed a new league certification course. The league certification is designed to address league rules and procedures, inform coaches of the Laws of the Game, provide technical instruction and satisfy the NJ Little League Law. The schedule is posted below. Applicants must sign up for both a classroom component AND a field component. You must attend the classroom component prior to attending a field session.

Applicants must be at least 16 years of age to attend the course. Applicants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at the field session. For the July and August 2018 dates, there will be no cost to sign up and attend the courses. The courses will be FREE.

You can register for the course on the Home page. A copy of the classroom powerpoint will be posted. For the field session, applicants are encouraged to wear comfortable playing attire, soccer cleats or appropriate footwear, shinguards, and bring a size 5 soccer ball, snacks and plenty to drink. Coaches are not required to participate, but are encouraged to do so to fully experience the training provided.
