Call for volunteers

We are in need of coaching volunteers for a number of our younger divisions. U8, Kindergarten, and PreK require little to no soccer experience — just the desire to have fun with the kids, get them running, and teach them some skills. U10 does get a little bit more involved, but we aren’t looking for professionals here.

We provide coach training for all levels and are able to work with you during your first few practices if you would feel more comfortable. You can also grab a friend and you can each be co-coaches. Please consider volunteering your time.

Weekly time commitment:

U10 = 1hr weekday practice + Saturday games

U8 = 45min weekday practice + Saturday games

K = 1 hr total – Friday evenings

PreK = 45 min total – Saturday mornings at 11:15

If you have any questions/concerns about coaching, please email me at christiansburgsoccer@gmail.com. If we’ve convinced you, please log into your account and simply complete the volunteer registration for the appropriate division.

Thank you to everyone that has already volunteered their time. Without your generosity we wouldn’t be able to provide our soccer program to the hundreds of kids each season.

{Coaches} Important Change: Equipment pick-up & Coach training

Coaches:
Due to the chilly weather expected this weekend, we are making some changes to the equipment/uniform pick-up times and the coach training.
Equipment/Uniform Pick-up –
All coaches will still need to pick up uniforms/equipment for their team this Saturday at Falling Branch Elementary.
Morning pick-up: 9 -10 a.m.
Afternoon pick-up: 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.
If you are not available to pick-up your team uniforms/equipment, please send a team parent to do so. If a team parent is coming, please let them know what equipment, if any, you need (cones, goals, bag) and if you need a coach shirt and the size.
We have 90+ teams this season and all uniforms need to be checked for problems. Any issues with equipment/uniforms need to be reported to us by Sunday evening; We will be placing a fill order on Monday.
Coach training –
10 a.m. – U8/U8G –  Bring your child and a soccer ball.
We will be showing you games and drills for your age level and will have your children demonstrate. Please come dressed for the cold and only bring YOUR child, do NOT bring your team.
4:30 p.m. – U10+ – Just bring yourself, no children are necessary.
We will be having our U10 Academy girls team demonstrating the drills/skills.
K & PreK coach trainings have been postponed.
Coach training for K and PreK divisions will now be held on Saturday, March 9th. Time and location information will be sent out next week.
Any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time.
