BECOME A VOLUNTEER COACH
Every year we need more coaches, assistants, and team parents. The league depends on parents to fill all these positions, and we are always looking to add to our roster of coaches, at all levels of experience. If you would like to volunteer as a coach or assistant coach, or if you know someone who is interested in making a difference in a young soccer player’s life, please contact Davor Gazivoda, Director of Recreational Programs. No experience is necessary, we will train you!
You can also register online as a volunteer at the same time you register your child and let us know which position you would like. Our Head and Assistant Coaches will be involved in the Fall’s Season draft (team selection process). We will only form teams for the number of coaches we have. All other players will be placed on a wait-list until another coach volunteers.
The requirements for coaching are set by US Club Soccer. All Head coaches must go through the Risk Management process which is paid for by the club. You will also be asked to attend a coaches meetings in May and August.
For detailed information, contact Davor Gazivoda, Director of Recreational Programs.
