Frequently Asked Questions - Coaches

1. How are coaches selected?
  • The majority of our coaches are volunteer parents. If you are interested in helping to coach, we can almost always find a spot for you. No experience is necessary. Just indicate your interest on the registration form or call or email the club.
  • As an extra incentive and in appreciation for parents or others volunteering to be head coaches, we offer free registration for the first child in the family.

2. Do you offer any coaches training?
  • We try to have a coaching clinic before the start of each season. Check the Calendar page for schedule information.
  • We have a limited number of USYSA training DVDs entitled "The Novice Coach", designed for players from U-6 (Kindergarten) through U-8 (Grade 1/2), and U-10 (Grade 3/4) through U-12 (Grade 5/6).  Coaches may borrow these for as long as they need them but we request they be returned at the end of the season.
  • All coaches Grade 1&2 and above are provided with a handy resource called "CoachDeck," which is a playing-card size set of practice guides and drills that are easy to follow and effective for planning a practice session. See any board member to get yours.
  • Finally, we recommend an excellent web-based resource called "SoccerHelp.com", which offers advice and guidance on practice sessions, formations, game strategies, team management, and much more.

3. I don't like the way my child is being coached. What should I do?
  • Every coach has a different style or approach to coaching. It is almost always best to discuss your concerns with the coach first. Also, try offering your support by helping out at practice.
  • Finally, if your attempts to resolve the situation have not worked, please contact one of the board members. We'll do our best to find a workable solution.

4. I signed up to be a coach.  Am I guaranteed a spot?  Also, will I hear one way or another if I am to be assigned a team?
  • Head coaches are assigned by the club based on the number of teams in each division.  Occasionally, all teams will have coaches already assigned so there are no open spots.  In such a case we would attempt to make you an assistant coach or co-coach.
  • The club will contact all those who have volunteered to coach to inform them of their team assignment or if there are no teams available.
