Re: Travel Team Head Coaches Require “E” Coaching License
The MSYSA Executive Board adopted a license requirement for all Maryland head coaches. It was the decision of the Executive Board that all coaches of MSYSA rostered travel teams should have at least a USSF “E” license or its equivalent, the NSCAA Regional Diploma. The MSYSA policy requires all returning travel team head coaches to meet the “E” license or equivalent requirement by the start of the fall 2007 season. New coaches in their first season as a head coach of a travel team can obtain a one-year waiver of the license requirement; however, all head coaches must meet the minimum license or equivalent within one calendar year of their first season coaching a travel team. Head coaches who fail to meet this minimum requirement will not be permitted to appear on a team’s roster.
