TORRANCE, CA. (August 2021) – AYSO and The Coaching Manual (TCM) are delighted to announce a partnership renewal with a new expanded offer, providing free access to bespoke coaching content and tools for every coach in the AYSO.

As the Official Digital Coaching Education Partner of AYSO, The Coaching Manual will allow soccer coaches the ability to efficiently plan their team’s training sessions and structure their season’s objectives, using broadcast-quality video session content featuring some of the best coaches in the sport.

AYSO Director of Sport and Development, Scott Snyder, stated, “This offer is a game changer for AYSO. Access to our coaching materials, AYSO-specific content, plus additional resources related to current initiatives, e.g. Social and Emotional Learning, Mental Health, etc., conveniently packaged in an interactive platform is going to be a great asset for our coaches.”

The Coaching Manual has been AYSO’s bespoke digital coaching platform since 2018, allowing coaches to access the same professional tools and resources as soccer clubs and academies in the English Premier League and Major League Soccer.

The Coaching Manual Founder, Chris Barton, shared; “We’re proud to have worked with AYSO for a number of years now, and are delighted that we’ve agreed a multi-year partnership to provide AYSO’s volunteer coaches across the US with access to their customized platform.”

“We couldn’t be happier to support thousands of coaches across the U.S. with the tools and resources that will help them create the best learning environment for their players. When it comes to planning and delivering soccer practice we know that time is precious, so The Coaching Manual not only helps coaches develop themselves and their players – it saves valuable time, too.”
