Coaches Resources

Without the effort of our coaches and support of our parents, youth soccer would not be possible. Your support and effort is appreciated.

Please consider volunteering with SSA, volunteer opportunities are listed on the 'How Can I Help' page.

 

Coaching Requirements

Prior to the season, all coaches must submit a Risk Management Background Check and concussion training through gotsoccer.com. Coaches will be e-mailed with instuctions to complete the process. Please contact us with any questions.

During the season, coaches must facilitate one practice (with the exception of U-4), 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 (head coach only) 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:

 

  • Parent Head Coach - $50.00
  • Parent Assistant Coach - $25.00
  • Non-parent Head Coach - $150.00
  • Non-parent Assistant Coach - $75.00
