Concussions are a serious concern in all of youth sports. It's important for coaches to be able to recognized concussion signs in a player and how to respond. BAYS requires all coaches to participate in concussion training and offers a free online course that can be done at your convenience. Once completed, you are asked to print your certificate (please make sure to save a copy) and hand it into the Watertown Youth Soccer Registrar.

All coaches must complete a CORI form in order to coach a team. This is mandatory to ensure the safety of our players. New coaches can register for a CORI here. Please enter “Watertown Youth Soccer” in the Name of Organization field on the form. You still need to complete a form even if you have an existing CORI registration for other volunteer activities, every organization needs it's own registration.
