Help! I Volunteered to Coach—What do I do?

Many first time coaches volunteer or are volunteered to the job. First things first… Relax. Relax and think about how much fun you are going to have with these little Under-6 and Under-8 soccer players.

Goal: Create a fun, learning soccer environment for your players in training and in games.

Background Check

All coaches must complete this process. Please visit SDYSA's Coach Registration and SafeSport
