Coaching a Pride Team

Application Due date for Coaching a Pride Team is: November 8th

AYSO requires that coaches be certified for the age they are coaching. 14U requires
an intermediate cert and 16U requires an advanced certification. If interested in
coaching a Pride team, please download, complete, and follow instructions to submit
your application to Prescott Pride Soccer, PO Box 11452 Prescott, AZ 86304 or email to
ayso172co[email protected]. The Prescott AYSO Board will consider all coach
applications. For an application, go to the appropriate sub-Tab under AYSO Extra

Eligible Players
Players in 8U & under are not eligible to play on any tournament teams per AYSO
National Rule and Regulations. To be eligible to try-out for a Pride team, players should
have played the AYSO primary season for region 172. Under special circumstances
there are exceptions for players who have not played in the primary season. Contact
the Regional Coach Administrator for more information.

Prescott AYSO raises funds as a region for Pride Teams. Each team is encouraged to
fundraise to help pay for extra equipment, team events, and to help get costs lower.
Simple fundraising can lower your per player costs by as much as $200, and
aggressive Team fundraising and/or Team sponsors can pay for the season. All
Fundraising events must be submitted and approved by the Regional Commissioner.

The tournament teams, in multiple age divisions, compete in AYSO and club
tournaments normally from January to May. AYSO and club tournaments are typically
two (2) day events with most games occurring on Saturdays and Sundays. Most Pride
teams play in 4-6 tournaments. Pride teams have traditionally played in the Kachina
Klassic, Crossroads Cup, and the Cactus Classic, all AYSO sponsored Tournaments.
