More Coaching Information

IEYSA utilizes volunteer coaches at the recreational and select levels of soccer. Each volunteer coach must complete a volunteer application, including a disclosure form and background check authorization. All volunteers must pass the criminal background check and agree to the IEYSA Code of Conduct prior to volunteering.

Volunteer training promotes cooperation, enhances training and education, encourages program innovation, promotes awareness, and rewards contributions. Training, program development and curriculum implementation for all volunteer coaches is the responsibility of the Youth Recreation Director.

Health and Safety Precautions

IEYSA soccer activities occur in many locations around greater Spokane and the Inland Empire. IEYSA volunteer coaches should have the following information readily available at every practice or game:
* A copy of each players medical release form, including emergency contact names and phone numbers
* A first aid kit
* Parent or guardian phone numbers

Coaches are asked to ensure that all players are picked up in a timely fashion by parents or guardians after practices or games; you should be the last to leave the field.

Zackery Lystedt Law
On May 14, 2009, the Governor of Washington Christine Gregoire signed the Zackery Lystedt Law. Effective July 26, 2009, the Lystedt Law directly affects youth sports and head injury policies particularly how you, as a coach, need to respond to player injuries. The new law requires that:

1. Informed consent must be signed by parents and youth athletes acknowledging the risk of head injury prior to practice or competition.
2. A youth athlete who is suspected of sustaining a concussion or head injury must be removed from play - "when in doubt, sit them out."
3. A youth athlete who has been removed from play must receive written clearance from a licensed health care provider prior to returning to play.
Lightning Safety Policy:

The purpose of this policy is to provide information to those responsible for making decisions about suspending and restarting games based on the presence of lightning. The current recommendation of the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) is to consider terminating play when the lightning is six miles away (flash-to-bang time of 30 seconds or less). This recommendation was developed as a practical way to make a judgment in situations in which other resources such as technology and instrumentation are not available.

As a minimum, NSSL staff strongly recommends that by the time the flash-to-bang count is 30 seconds all individuals should have left the game site and reached a safe structure or location. In addition, a smaller, but still real, risk exists with the presence of lightning at greater distances. Unfortunately, current science cannot predict where within the radius the next strike will occur.

The existence of blue sky and the absence of rain are not protection from lightning. Lightning can, and does, strike as far as 10 miles away from the rain shaft. It does not have to be raining for lightning to strike.

The flash-to-bang method is the easiest and most convenient way to estimate how far away lightning is occurring. Thunder always accompanies lightning, even though its audible range can be diminished because of background noise in the immediate environment and its distance to the observer. To use the flash-to-bang method, count the seconds from the time the lightning is sighted to when the clap of thunder is heard. Divide this number by five to obtain how many miles away the lightning is occurring.

When considering resumption of a game, NSSL staff recommends that everyone ideally should wait at least 30 minutes after the last flash of lightning or sound of thunder before returning to the field of activity. If available, electronic detection devices should be used as additional tools to determine the severity of the weather. However, such devices should not be used as the sole source when considering terminating play.
