MYSA Codes of Conduct

The Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association Board of Directors approved the implementation of Codes of Conduct for Coaches, Parents, Players and Referees and a Zero Tolerance Policy by unanimous consent in January 2023. 

The Mass Youth Soccer Codes of Contact and Zero Tolerance Policy were developed over a number of months of consultation and collaboration with League and Member Organization leaders, Massachusetts State Referee Committee and other State Associations utilizing best practices from other Leagues, States and US Soccer appropriate for our programs.

The adoption of the Codes of Conduct and Zero Tolerance Policy linked below is a requirement for all member organizations effective February 1, 2023. 

Additions have been made to Mass Youth Soccer’s existing required registration language detailing that the registrant has read, understands and agrees to uphold the Mass Youth Soccer Codes of Conduct and Zero Tolerance Policy.

It is a requirement that all member organizations reference the Mass Youth Soccer Codes of Conduct and Zero Tolerance Policy in registration language for players, coaches, referees and volunteers beginning with the Fall 2023 season.

Volunteering as Head or Assistant Coach

Ashland Youth Soccer is always looking for parents to help with coaching, scheduling, team creation or curriculum creation. Reach out to our AYS Registrar  if any of the above interests you.

We are grateful for the time and commitment that the parents bring to the Ashland Youth Soccer Program! We couldn't run the program without you.

MANDATORY for ALL AYS Volunteers, Coaches, and Assistant Coaches

In order to ensure the safety of all players, there are new Massachusetts and US Soccer guidelines for all coaches/volunteers.
All volunteers must complete the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association (MYSA)/US Soccer Adult Registration process.  
Note that this process takes some time, so if you will be coaching for an upcoming season, please complete ASAP.**


Click here to go to instructions on how to complete an Adult Registration, and the U.S. Soccer Connect Adult Registration page.

Once you complete the registration portion of the process, the AYS Registrar will confirm you as a coach, and your CORI check/Background check will be conducted by the state.  In the meantime, you should complete the remainder of the registration process including the SafeSport and Concussion training. (All instructions for these are outlined in the link above).

Finally, send a copy of your driver’s license to the AYS Risk Manager at  [email protected]

Required Coach Identification at ALL Games and Practices

**At this time, the risk manager is unable to print Coaching Credentials with the new Stack Safe Soccer system.  Due to this temporary problem, BAYS has approved the following workaround for coaches**

Town registrars will continue to work to make sure all coaches: 

1. Are Registered and Confirmed in Stack
2. Have a valid and APPROVED photo upload (Green Dot)
3. Have an APPROVED iCORI Clearance Status

  • Once coaches have met those 3 conditions, registrars can list them on a BAYS team roster.  

  • Coaches who complete the above steps must bring a government issued photo ID or a picture of that photo on ID on their phone to the fields with them

  • Prior to kickoff at every game, referees will ask ALL coaches on the sidelines to show them a government issued photo ID or a picture of a government issued ID on their phone, which will then be matched against the coach names listed on the roster.

Only coaches who have a valid ID and are listed on a team roster will be allowed on the sideline with the kids.

  1. If a team has a substitute coach for a game and the coach is not listed on that team's roster, the coach must be listed on a valid roster from another team in that club, show the referee that roster, and show the referee a government issued photo ID or a picture of a government issued ID on their phone.
  • NO Credential Lanyard or Coaches Card will be required at this time.  

Once Coaching Credentials are able to be printed in the new Stack Safe Soccer program, the following will be required:

Upon completion of the Adult Registration, CORI Approval, Concussion Training certification, and Safe Soccer Training, the Registrar will issue you a MYSA Coaching Credential.

As a coach, you are required to carry your MYSA Coaching Credentials (worn on lanyard) at all times (games and practices).

The Risk Manager will notify the coaches when Coaching Credentials are printed, and ready to be picked-up at their home in Ashland.

Ashland Youth Soccer has equipment to help you coaching your team. We have pinnies, first aid kits, cones and other gear to help you. If needed, reach out to our equipment coordinator [email protected]
