Please be sure you have a valid risk management pass from NYSWYSA or any US Youth Soccer state association (IE. ENY, EPA, PAW, etc).  No coach will be permitted into a NYSWYSA coaching course without a valid background check administered through a USYS state association's risk management process.  The NYSWYSA risk management process takes approximately two weeks to complete. You may begin that process by going here



Full payment is required at registration. There is no 100% refund once you registered for the course. Within two weeks of the course, NYSW Coach Education will look to enter the candidate in another upcoming course in NYSW. Within one week of the course, no refund will be given, unless special circumstances are communicated to NYSW Coach Education.
