Online Coaching Applications Now Available
Submitted By Head Coach on Monday, January 25, 2016
It takes a team to run a team, and with over 90 teams in our association and as the membership continues to grow, our programs need some help teaching the game we all love.

We are currently looking for coaches for all of our programs, and all applications will be subject of review for each program.  The online form can be found here:

Coaching can be a very rewarding experience. The benefits are you get to spend time with your child, be outdoors and share a common interest with them. With everyone's time being so precious these days, making time now to share your child's interests will help cement your relationship with them for years to come.

You may be feeling that you don't have what it takes. You might know how to play soccer or you might not have any knowledge of the game at all. Don't let this concern you as there is a lot of information on soccer available and knowledge can be acquired, and we even help you out by providing courses at no charge to aid in your soccer / coaching development.

Coaching involves more than designing plays for free kicks or creating team formations. Coaching, especially at the youth level, involves accepting a huge responsibility as you are basically in a position of trust as parents put their kids in your care.   Some attributes of great soccer coaches are:

  • Communicate Positively

  • Teach Soccer Fundamentals

  • Explore Similar Activities

  • Teach Soccer Rules

  • Direct Players in Games

  • Help Players Become Fit

  • Provide a Safe Environment

  • Help Kids Develop Character

Every player is an individual. Provide a wholesome environment so that each one has the chance to learn how to play the game without fear and while having fun.  We know your time is valuable and as a Coach in our Association we offer you the following as a thank you for all of your efforts.

1) All Coaches are Paid Positions of $75.00 per team, however you can only Coach a maximum of 2 teams per year.

2) All Coaches receive a Coaches Shirt (yours to keep), and the necessary equipment, to help your season run smoothly.

3) Access to online sessions and current Coaches to aid in your teams development

If you are interested in Coaching or have any further questions, please contact with us with your questions

Yours in Soccer,

The Executive Commitee
