Volunteer Coaches
PLEASE VOLUNTEER!!
All coaching is done by volunteers such as parents, family members, high school players, and soccer enthusiasts.
Coaches that coach the entire season will have their child’s fee reimbursed to them after the season.
If a coach cannot be found when the season begins, one of the parents will be expected to step forward and volunteer. Teams will not be allowed to practice or play without a coach. It will not be the sole responsibility of GFPD to find a coach.

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.
Team Management:
Prepare a list of simple and clear rules for your players and their parents. Introduce yourself to the team.
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
