Coaching/Team Manager Requirements

Prior to the season, all coaches must submit a Risk Management Background Check and concussion training through gotsoccer.com. Coaches and Team Managers will be e-mailed with instructions to complete the process. Complete one 1.5 hour indoor training session, one 1 hour outdoor training session, and attend coaches Rally Day. Please contact us with any questions.

During the season, Team Managers must (with the exception of U-7) attend and participate in games, regularly communicate with parents and adhere to the Coach Code of Conduct. Violations of the Code of Conduct will not be tolerated.

At the end of the season, coaches are responsible for returning SSA equipment (cones, soccer balls, and bags) to the organization and completing an end of the year player evaluation.

Once all coaching criteria from the season have been met, coaches will receive a reimbursement check from SSA according to the following guidelines:

Reimbursement Scale:
  • Team Manager – Total Registration fee for player being coached
2020 Under 18 Coaching Guidelines:
  1. Head coaches under 18 shall have an adult team manager to assist the normal operations of the team if the team has no adult assistant coach.
  2. If the team with a head coach under 18 years has an adult assistant coach, that assistant coach should also act as the team manager with the responsibilities as described below.

The team manager assisting a young head coach should have the following responsibilities:

  1. Make sure the roster and names are accurate;
  2. Work with coaches and parents to establish a practice schedule;
  3. Communicate with coaches to decide if a practice should be canceled in the event of a inclement weather or coach unavailability;
  4. Create a treat/snack schedule if the team desires to have one;
  5. Act as a liaison between the coach and the parents, resolving behavior issues relating to the coach, parents and players;
  6. The team manager may help the coach during a practice but it is recommended that the team manager does not instruct the coach how to coach;
  7. Most importantly, we want to help and foster young coaches to mature, to be comfortable and to grow so the soccer community can benefit for the years to come.
