WYSL offers a mandatory (free) 2 Hour Coach Orientation Course for all new travel coaches (assistants and heads) who wish to receive a permanent WYSL coaching pass. All new coaches must attend. Coaches who do not take this course will have to relinquish their passes to their club registrars prior to the commencement of the spring season (i.e. April, 2016).

There is no fee to attend these sessions.

These courses will be conducted by WYSL Board Members who will cover the following:  team and player registration, player and coaches passes, transfer players, code of conduct, game procedures, rain-outs and field pulls, make-up games, referees, the WYSL Sportsmanship Program, Silent Sundays, Red Cards, Protests and Appeals, tournaments, permission to travel, the league website and more.
