VOLUNTEER TO COACH!

Our recreational program is 100% volunteer run and would not be possible without the help of parents. We’re committed to the parent-coach model for Fall Rec because of the sense of community it brings to the program and club. But we need a lot of willing moms, dads, grandparents, uncles, etc. to make it a success! Please consider volunteering as a head coach or assistant coach.

Some things to know about coaching:

1) We don’t require that you played in college or high school. We value enthusiasm and commitment to making the experience fun and fair for all players. Our licensed comp soccer coaches are available to support our volunteer coaches as needed.

2) We offer a pre-season coaching clinic, designed by our competitive program, providing easy practice plans.  Help will be available all season as needed.

3) The time commitment is 1 practice per week for U8 and younger, and 2 practices per week for U10 and older. If you can recruit a friend or two to coach with you, it will be a piece of cake.

4) Head coaches get to pick their practice time and day, so you’ll have more control over your child’s schedule.

5) New this year, LGU is encouraging parents to enroll in U.S. Soccer’s excellent Grassroots coach education program. The course can be completed fully online for a minimal cost of $25. We will credit $50 towards your registration fees if you complete the course. Read more about it here: Coaching License Pathway
