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 OF COACHING:
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 game
It’s about player development, not winning and losing
