Please consider coaching your child

Thinking about coaching?

All of our coaches are parent volunteer coaches. We cannot run our program without our parent volunteers and are extremely grateful for all of our volunteers.

No soccer experience is required; weekly lesson plans are provided as are trainers for part of your weekly practice session for Rec. 

Let us know if you are interested; you can indicate your interest on the registration page ! We try to have 2 parent coaches for each team.  Coaches are responsible for the weekly practice and weekend games for our rec. program.

If you are coaching Little Lakers our trainers will work with your team the first 30 minutes and help set up the game for the next 30 minutes. Coaches will help out with games on and off the field. 

You will be amazed at how fun it is to be out on the field with your child and his/her peers. We do honor buddy requests for our volunteer coaches. If you would like to dedicate your time and talents to the program we would love to have you. Please indicate your desire to coach below. 

Due to Safe Sport Act of 2017, all coaches need to submit a background check, concussion and abuse awareness training for all youth sports organizations. This includes coaches and volunteers. Background checks completed with an other organization will not count.
