Question Number: 32986

League Specific 1/15/2019

RE: AYSO Under 19

Steve Hawkins of Altadena, California US asks...

This question is a follow up to question 32984

AYSO National Rules and Regs specify a maximum of two coaches per match:

'b. Remain within the coaches technical area (Article I.G.2) during the match; a maximum of two coaches is permitted for each team.'

Answer provided by Referee Joe McHugh

Hi Steve
Thanks for the clarification which states that
** Remain within the coaches' technical area (Article I.G.2) during the match; a maximum of two coaches is permitted for each team.**
It begs the question though as to whether a first aider / physio or other non coaching staff are allowed?
The experience is that it can be difficult to get persons involved never mind limiting the number.
I have added an update and addendum to the original answer
