General Information

Please consider becoming a volunteer coach! Our programs cannot happen without the volunteers. Soccer knowledge is helpful, but not required. Whereas, a background check is required. You can find the volunteer application here.

Parents, spectators, and guardians should abide by the code of conduct during games and practices. Sports can be an emotionally charged environment, and sometimes our emotions get the better of us. Yelling at referees, coaching from the bench or saying negative things about the children playing is prohibited.
Please remember:

  1. These are kids
  2. This is a game
  3. Coaches are volunteers
  4. The Referees and umpires are human
  5. Spectators should cheer for everyone
  6. No college scholarships will be handed out

Adults should model positive behaviors: cheer for good plays, regardless of who made it; treat the coach as an ally and help out where you can; and be respectful to other adults, children, officials and the coaches.

At the conclusion of the season, please take a moment to evaluate your coach.

Thank you for volunteering; the season wouldn’t happen without you! Here are a few items to help you get started:

  • Job Description
  • League Overview
  • Coaches’ Manual/Rule Book
  • Master Game Schedule

Ball sizes:

  • Junior: Ages 5-9
  • Intermediate: 10-14

At the conclusion of the season, please evaluate your players. This will help us form more evenly matched teams next season.

All coaches, parents/guardians and spectators must abide by this Code of Conduct. Failure to do so may result in you being asked to leave.

  • I will not yell at officials, coaches, other adults or my child while they are playing
  • I will not ridicule anyone involved in a youth sporting event
  • I will not curse or use abusive language
  • I will not coach from the sidelines
  • I will not use any form of electronic media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to harass, verbally assault or bully any member of the Parks & Recreation program
  • I will not disrupt coaches during meetings, games or practices
  • I will demonstrate good sportsmanship by being supportive of all players, coaches and officials at every game, practice or youth sport event.
  • I will remember that this program and game is for kids, not ADULTS
