FAQ- Coach

For recreational soccer, we are always looking for volunteer coaches whether you are a seasoned player/coach or new to soccer! Our coaches are exposed to coaching clinics, receive reference material, and are provided the opportunity to attend club team training sessions to enhance coaching development. For those interested in coaching a competitive team, please contact advancedteams@nullsvslvsoccerclub.org.
Yes, coaches can coach more than one team, and we try our best to coordinate schedules and game days. It is helpful to have an assistant coach that can cover in the event there are conflicts.
Rec team coaches will receive soccer balls, team uniforms, and practice lesson materials as part of the registration fee. Comp teams purchase their own equipment through incremental fees coordinated by each individual team.
Practices typically start by mid-August with games starting the weekend after Labor Day and ending 1-2 weeks before Thanksgiving.

Rosters and equipment are distributed at the Coaches Meeting in July. If you cannot attend, the registrar will email your roster to you. We will send an email with information on times and location to pickup your equipment. Uniforms will arrive in late August just before the season starts. We will email pickup location and times about a week in advance.
Game schedules are published by mid-August. This allows us to get the maximum number of teams and players registered. U6-U10 games will be published earlier because those matchups are all SV/SLV SC teams. U12-U19 requires coordination with other county Clubs. We ask families to be patient. In this age group, teams drop or are added last minute which causes delays.
The head coach can name ONE assistant coach. The assistant coach must request to be with that head coach when they register.
