Recreational Coaches | 4S Ranch Youth Soccer Association

Recreational Coaches

Our recreational teams are coached by volunteers.  Our coaches receive a Youth Module 1 (YM1) 3-hour course for new and existing coaches.  This free training provides coaches enough information to get started coaching at the recreational level.  Coaches training is held each year a week or so before the season starts.

Volunteer to Coach

Our kids need you!  Please fill out the following form to express your interest in coaching with our organization.  A member of our board will contact you.  All coaches are thoroughly vetted and will undergo a Live Scan background check and fingerprinting.

The Good Coach Checklist

  • Individualism—Remember each child is unique, with differing skill levels and attention spans.
  • Role Model—Coaches, instructors, and teachers are role models.
  • Participation is emphasized, not winning.
  • Fun—Prepare each practice and game for the enjoyment of each player.
  • Safety—Safe drills, clean game play, re-check fields and goal posts, beware of busy streets, etc.
  • Listen to the children’s’ needs, wants, and input.
  • Confidence—Emphasize the positive and minimize the negative.
  • Sportsmanship—Fair play, no taunting, no trash talking, graceful regardless of outcome.
  • Organization—Pre-plan practices and games. Create an outline for the entire season: skills to be developed, drills, and rotation of each player through each position.
  • Develop soccer skills through free-form activity not just through drills and rules.
  • Parents will need your attention. Encourage their positive participation.
  • Positive experience for all: players, coaches, parents, and referees. Please do all that you can to make this the best season yet!
