    Coach Registration (Opens 7/01/19)

    ****U10 Boys coaching positions are full at this time.****

    Change is inevitable. Coaches now need to register through GotSoccer to be a coach.They are in charge of all of our background checks. If you have already been a coach before, do a search for your email to see if you are already in their system.Then you can just log in with your old account. If you do a search and you are not there, then create a new account. All future registrations will be conducted through this site.

    Volunteer Coaches, Assistant, and Team Parents are needed for the following programs:

    FALL RECREATIONAL SOCCER
    COMPETITIVE SOCCER
    GRASSHOPPER PROGRAM
    SPRING PLAYER DEVELOPMENT FUTSAL PROGRAM

    QUALIFICATIONS:

    WILLING TO LEARN AND HAVE FUN.
    Each Volunteer will also need to pass a simple background check once registered.

    There are a few key points that will help you be a successful Volunteer.

    1) Commit to the players on your team. Let them know you're their Coach and you want them on your team. Learn their names as fast as possible. Being on a Team make kids feel wanted.

    2) Consistency keeps the team together. You can consult with parents about times and days for practices BUT set a schedule YOU can keep and KEEP IT. Practice at the same place and times every week if possible. Use the SI PLAY app for all your scheduling and communications with parents. Kids need a safe familiar place to learn, parents need consistency to plan their busy schedules.

    3) Be Prepared for practice and games. Plan your practices each week. Players know when you're faking it. Keep it simple, keep it fun. There are lots of resources available to you. Use them. Here are your Coaching Plans for each Age Division:

    4) Educate yourself. Take the opportunity to educate yourselves about soccer in general but specifically about the game you will be playing each week. 3v3, 5v5, 7v7, 9v9, and 11v11 are all soccer games but with different formations and rules. Players and parents will be looking to you to explain and teach. Take the time to learn so you can help your players learn.

    5) Have a positive attitude. Be excited that your players are making mistakes because that means there trying new things. A Positive Coach makes for Positive Players makes for Positive Parents makes for a Positive Experience for all. Nothing kill the fun faster then a negative attitude. Your attitude will set the tone for the whole team and season.

    Soccer, like all sports is build on a foundation of fundamentals technical skills needed for players to progress. Without this foundation players stop progressing, fall behind other players there age and stop playing because it's not fun anymore or they're not good enough. It’s no fun being left behind. Coaches, implementing the fundamentals of soccer in your practices and games is your goal.
