Coach and Referee Training

Coach Clinics

Calling all coaches; the 2016 coach clinic schedule is set.  All recreation coaches are required to attend one of the SMYS coach clinics to be held on the dates listed below.  These clinics are in addition to the required F license which is held on-line through the CalSouth and US Youth Soccer websites.

SMYS clinics will cover league specific game formats, practice fields, coach expectations, and training objectives.

As always, thank you for coaching the kids!


Referee Training

Mark your calendars - August 6th is the next date for new referee training! 

Becoming an SMYS volunteer referee is a great opportunity to be a part of your child’s soccer experience while learning more about the rules of soccer.  Referees make the game fun and safe for the kids!

It’s also a great opportunity for high school students to earn their required volunteer hours which they can also use on their college applications.

Please join us on Saturday for our 2016 Fall Referee Training Class. In addition to gaining more knowledge of the game, there are many appreciation incentives that referees earn for completing a certain amount of games throughout the season. The 7-hour class will be held from 9:00-5:00 at the San Marcos Civic Center in the Dining Room. Lunch will be provided (Yum!) 

To confirm your attendance (or to learn more about the training), please email Randy Smith with your name and phone number.  Please indicate if you are an adult or a player (youth referees must be 12 years or older).

Thank you for your support of the league and the kids; we hope you will consider this great opportunity, 

Randy Smith 

Director of Referees, SMYS

Logging in to our Site

As many of you may have noticed, SMYS has started using a new registration program called League Toolbox to manage our Winter Arena Season.  This new program not only takes registrations, but it also creates rosters and schedules, as well as helps us communicate with coaches, referees, players, and parents.  Everyone that is registered in the Winter Arena Season (players/parents, coaches, referees) has a personal account that they can access to view their schedules, team rosters, and other personal information.

Logging in to your League Toolbox account is not the same as logging in to our website or your CalSouth account, so if you have experienced difficulties or confusion trying to log in, we apologize for any inconvenience.  If you registered online, you used the League Toolbox program and have an account login and password.

Over the next few weeks, we will be slowing shifting our website over to the League Toolbox web hosting site and will be eliminating part of the confusion between the two sites.  

To view the Spring Arena schedules, click on the schedules button on the top menu - there you will also be able to log in to your League Toolbox account.

Thank you for your patience while we work through this transition that is going to help make San Marcos Youth Soccer a more efficient soccer league.

Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports

headsup youthsports194w110hTo help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, CDC developed the Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports initiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The Heads Up initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.

San Marco Youth Soccer supports this program and wants to make you aware of it.
