Notice to Applicants
By completing this application, you are requesting to be considered by the AYSO Region 16 Select Team Committee, to be appointed as the coach for a select team. The acceptance of this application for consideration by the Committee does not construe any promise or guarantee of appointment to this position. The Committee will review all applicants for each age division and will in good faith appoint the coach that they (the Committee) feels is best suited to represent our region, and best suited for the prospective team.
Applicants, by signing this application, agree to abide by the AYSO Rules & Regulations, Region 16 Regional Guidelines and the decisions of the Select Team Committee in the governance of their respective team and AYSO spirit and philosophies. Failure to comply with the AYSO Rules & Regulations, Region 16 Regional Guidelines, Select Team Policies, or Board directives may subject the participant to disciplinary action, up to and including, removal from the program. I understand that this program is separate from the regular AYSO season and is financially self-funded among each team.

First of all, thank you for wanting to coach a select team. It's a huge commitment, highly competitive, and hopefully we are all dedicating our time and efforts for the same reason….the children.
Our Select Team Committee for our secondary season is comprised of Region 16 volunteers. The Committee will recommend coaches for this program. The final review and approval is left to the Regional Commissioner & Assistant Regional Commissioner who will ensure that the best applicants have been selected to represent Region 16.
With respect to the process, the deadline to submit your select coach application is Saturday (10/10/15)
Verbal applications will not be recognized. You must allow the Select Team Committee time to review all the applications, and possibly investigate any concerns our region may have regarding this upcoming secondary season. Select Team Committee members will not be allowed to recommend their own applications for acceptance. Please do not assume that you can become a select coach simply by default if no one else submits an application. Until you are formally approved and selected, you do not have a select team and therefore you are NOT to offer anyone a position (players or Asst Coaches). Doing so, could disqualify you and your child from the Select Team program.
With respect to the children, they are very impressionable. The mere mention of playing on a select team is all a child needs to hear before they're booking their flight to Florida for the National Games. What you might consider scouting; a child may consider a promise to play. For this reason, we insist that you DO NOT engage in any direct scouting conversations with potential players or parents until given permission by the Select Team Committee. Please feel free to attend games, maybe even talk to a few coaches, but NOT the children or parents.
We're glad you're excited and hopeful, please stay that way. We just ask that you realize that we go through these procedures for the safety and sanity of all involved…..especially the children. Furthermore, if you cannot respect our rules during the application process, we have no choice but to believe that you won't respect the rules set forth by other regions/tournaments during this select season.
Thank you again for your interest in this program. A decision will be made as quickly as possible and we will notify all applicants of our final decision.
