U8-U13 Coach training

We will be holding brief coaching trainings this Saturday, February 27th at Falling Branch Elementary School.

U8 – 3:00 p.m.

U10/U13 – 3:30 p.m.

Please bring your player and dress warmly – the temps are going to be less than spring-like. *Just your child, not your team.*

You will also be picking up equipment at those times. If you don’t need training, please plan to come and pick-up equipment. Any coach, assistant coach, or team manager can pick-up equipment.

If you have equipment from the fall you do not need to come on Saturday.

Jerseys will not be given out at this time. 

Coaches needed

PARENT PARTICIPATION NEEDED!

We are in need of more coaching volunteers. Our rec program runs entirely on time donated by volunteer coaches. At this point we do not have enough coaches in any age level to begin forming teams.

Coaching is an awesome way to be involved in all the fun. You do not need to have any coaching or soccer experience at all; Simply a desire to create a fun experience for the players and their families and to be an enthusiastic supporter of the game. We will provide you with coach training, help with putting together a practice, and being on hand for any assistance that you need.

We have heard time and time again from parents how rewarding coaching has been for them and their family. Many of these parents never had any experience with soccer but have grown with the sport along with their players.  Please consider volunteering your time.

If you have any questions on coaching or the time commitment required, please email me. I’ve coached all divisions and have loved every minute of it. It truly is such fun.

*If your player is currently on the wait list but you plan to coach, please email me as soon as possible.

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.
