Volunteer Coaches

I volunteered, now what?

Many first time coaches volunteer or are volunteered to the job. First things first…Relax.  Relax and think about how much fun you are going to have.

Goal: Create a fun, learning soccer environment for your players in training and in games.
How? Talk to the Program Director and request helpful coaching materials and coaching aids.Talk to other Soccer Coaches in the program or in your community who have worked with these age groups before.

Team Management:
Prepare a list of simple and clear rules for your players and their parents. Introduce yourself to the team. Conduct a preseason meeting to review these rules and to go over other important information.
Consider the following:

  • Schedules and locations for training sessions and games.
  • Drop off and pick up times for training sessions and games.
  • Player responsibilities and behavior at training sessions and games.
  • Parent responsibilities and behavior at training sessions and games.
  • Player equipment (Everyone should bring a ball & have shin guards)
  • Coaching equipment
  • Discuss the procedure for canceling training sessions and games.
    It’s about player development, not winning and losing!

Risk Management:

  • Provide proper age appropriate activities at training sessions and games.
  • Assure that training and playing areas are safe.
  • Make sure that all players are wearing the correct equipment and that it is appropriately sized.
  • Make sure that you are assisted by another adult when coaching the players (This includes the time when players arrive and when they depart from training sessions and games).
