Not every coach meets all points for these criteria. Often, willing parents that have a solid understanding of youth sports in general are asked to coach in the club, with the intent of educating them on the game of soccer. As a rule, the more criteria that a coaching candidate possess, the more desirable they are to have in our club. Some of the criteria, including being a good role model for the players, dependability, and overall commitment to the players are firm requirements of the coaching role and are not negotiable attributes.

Some of the benefits of coaching with us include:

  • Discounts on your child's registration fees

  • Make a positive impact on local youth
  • Get to spend time with the game and help build the game in our community
