We Need Coaches

It doesn’t get more simple than this: no coaches ==> no teams ==> no Club.

Coaches are the backbone of our organization.  If you have an interest in coaching, we want to hear from you.

In order to be considered for a volunteer coaching position, you must:

  • Get fingerprinted through LiveScan your first year coaching for OYSC.
  • Pass a DOJ background check
  • Complete SafeSport training – a 90-minute online course on protecting young athletes.
  • Complete US Soccer Safety Training – a 30-minute course on the keeping athletes healthy.
  • Agree to the coaches code of conduct.

The DOJ and risk management (DUI review, SafeSport and US Soccer Safety Training are annual requirements to coach youth soccer per USSF.

Additionally, we are looking for young adults (16+) who would like to share their love of the game with our younger teams.  We can match you up with an appropriate coach/team to get you started coaching and help you stay involved with our Club.

If you have any questions, please reach out to our Coach Coordinator by sending email to:

When available, the link to register as a coach will be available on this page.



If the ambient outside air temperature is greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit (100°F) at the time of practice as measured for Orangevale, CA on, coaches are encouraged to modify or cancel practice.  If the temperature is greater than 105°F leading up to practice time, cancel practice.

Air Quality

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is a measure of the ground level ozone.  For the Sacramento region, the air quality forecast can be checked the day before practice at  We strongly advise that you check the AQI in the afternoon the days of your practices (and you can also sign up for email alerts as well).  Ground level ozone can irritate and damage the lungs.

Ozone levels are typically higher in the Sacramento region in the afternoon and early evening hours and people of all ages who exercise or work vigorously outdoors (soccer practice) are considered a “sensitive group” as they will have a higher level of exposure to ozone than people who are less active outdoors.  Typically, the air quality in our portion of the greater Sacramento area diminishes significantly during the late afternoon/early evening time period (right at soccer practice time).

It is recommended that you modify or cancel practice if the AQI is forecasted to be greater than 100 (unhealthy for sensitive groups).  If it is forecasted to be greater than 126 (unhealthy for all groups), cancel practice.

Field Conditions


If it has rained within the preceding 24 hours, teams must must call the FIELD CONDITIONS HOTLINE at (916) 987-1507 to find out if the fields are useable.  Updates will be provided on a same-day basis only; by 3:00pm on weekdays and by 8:00 am on weekends.
