 ******************************************** 
   Youth Soccer Coaches Needed for the Indoor Season!    
 ******************************************** 

   

The FYSA Fall 2019 Indoor soccer season is starting soon and we are in need of volunteer coaches for a variety of ages of youth recreational teams. This rewarding experience is a great way to make a difference in the lives of the young members of our soccer community.

Our programs range from PreK through High School and time commitments for coaching can be as little as '1 hour a week for 6 weeks' to '2 hours a week for 8 weeks' at most.

If you have any interest in sharing a love for soccer with the youth of our community, we want you involved. No previous coaching experience is required. We offer a free pre-season training session or individual support for those who are willing but feel like they don't know how to turn that desire or soccer experience into successful coaching. Trust us, its not as difficult as you may think AND the experience is rewarding as you see youth learn and enjoy their time on the soccer court.

Older teens can also coach the younger age group teams so if you're a soccer loving high school player and want to give back to the program, let us know!

Parents who volunteer to coach receive a discount code mid-season to use for their next registration. Soccer lovers without children in the program can also get discounted registration for our adult soccer league.

We’d love to match you up with a coaching spot that fits your schedule. Contact us at [email protected] or feel free to call the office at 907-456-3972 or text 907-987-6334 Register to coach at www.fysasoccer.org

Thank you for helping spread the word and for supporting our soccer community. Don't forget to SHARE!

COACHING RESOURCES

Here are some helpful resources for those wonderful individuals who volunteer to coach youth soccer!

FYSA's parent organization for recreational programs is the Soccer Association for Youth (SAY Soccer). On their website, there are some great resources such as video drills, printable drills, even an entire season's worth of practice plans that you can choose from. Check our their Coaching Resources page here: http://www.saysoccer.org/Default.aspx?tabid=333065

US Youth Soccer is another great resource. The USYSA Coaching Education department recently published some excellent 'Assistant Coach Series' publications. These Practice Activities for the Parent Coach are great resources for volunteers.

Feel free to coordinate your efforts with parents. Plan activities that are simple and don't be afraid of repetition. In fact, having several 'go to' drills that are worked on each week is actually a great learning method for young players. Whatever you decide to do as their coach, we're grateful for your time and are happy to help with your efforts.
