Coach FAQ’s

What is involved in being a coach? Assistant coach? 
Typically, Coaches run two weekday practices and a Saturday game (although some regions hold their U6 games on a different day of the week). Our Coaches teach and encourage kids, and have a lot of fun. Parents help with team organization tasks. There is some administration, but not much.

I don’t know anything about soccer. Can I still help coach? 
Yes indeed! We provide training and other materials. Being a coach involves skills you probably already have, in addition to specific soccer knowledge. If you are uncertain, try being an assistant coach. You region’s Coach Administrator will be happy to try to match you up with somebody with a little more experience.

What training is provided for Coaches? 
In addition to Safe Haven, coaches’ training is available on a Regional and Area level for our volunteers. Contact your region’s Coach Administrator for further information.

I’m not happy with my child’s coach. What can I do?
First, remember that we do not use paid professional coaches. Our coaches are parents, just like you, volunteering their time. Many are brand new at coaching, especially in the youngest divisions, and may be learning about the game and our program. Take a moment to talk with your child’s coach if you feel there’s a problem.

If you believe a coach is making too many mistakes or is not doing an acceptable job, please contact your region’s Coach Administrator. If you’re still not satisfied, contact your Regional Commissioner.
