Teamwork Among Coaches and Volunteers
Coaches and volunteers hold joint planning sessions and cooperate to ensure that each game is a satisfying experience for all participants. Players learn teamwork by the example set by the participating adults.
Teamwork Among Players
Players will learn to work together and support each other during drills and games. During drills, your child may be asked to play different positions and will thus discover the skills and responsibilities needed throughout the team. Through the experience of practicing and playing with others, your child will learn the importance of working with a team toward a common goal.
Teamwork Among Teams
Yes, we even ask for cooperation between the teams competing during a game. All players greet each other before games and congratulate each other after games, and also assist coaches and volunteers in preparing for and cleaning up after each game.
Teamwork Among Parents
As you attend practice sessions and games, you will make many friends among the other players' parents. Although each parent is responsible for making sure their child has transportation to and from games and shows up in uniform ready to play, please be willing to pitch in and help other parents and volunteers as needed with rides, an extra water bottle, providing snacks for the team, and so forth. Our teams may be competing against each other, but as individuals, we need to work together to make sure everyone has fun.
Outside of the players, the coaches are the most important people on the team. The coaches are the people who will guide and train your children and shape their attitudes toward sports. We're proud to introduce our wonderful coaches.
Head Coach 9, 10, 11 year olds. Meagan Bass Coach Bass's Coaching Philosophy. "The entire team wins the prize; by recognizing each other's strengths and supporting each other, we will always come out on top".
Greg Martinez Coach Martinez's Coaching Philosophy. "Every kid who has the true desire to play can learn to play well". Summer Kazinski Coach Kazinski's Coaching Philosophy.
"Do your best and have fun". Head Coach 12, 13, 14 year olds. Fred Mayer Coach Mayer's Coaching Philosophy.
"Teamwork, teamwork, teamwork". Sophie Hanover Coach Hanover's Coaching Philosophy. "Get in shape and get in position and you'll get the goal".
Ethan Romanof Coach Romanof's Coaching Philosophy. "Sports should be fun for everyone".
Assistant coaches will guide the players through warm up drills and will collaborate with the Head Coach on player positions and game strategies. The assistant coaches may also substitute for the Head Coach as needed. To participate on our soccer teams, your child must meet the following requirements.
Be between the ages of 9 and 14 Description. Teams will be assembled as follows. 9, 10, and 11 year olds; 12, 13, and 14 year olds. If we have enough enrollees, we may form multiple teams with smaller age ranges on each.
Be able to run 50 yards without difficulty As your child practices and plays, he or she will be able to run far greater distances with ease, but we need to ensure that our players are able to begin practice. Your child should be able to run 50 yards without limping, wheezing, or collapsing at the end of that distance. If you have any doubt about your child's health, please consult your doctor for advice.
If we find that a child is not healthy enough to participate, we reserve the right to dismiss your child and refund your money during the first week of practice. Be able to easily understand basic instructions in English We welcome children of differing backgrounds, but our coaches cannot accommodate different languages or sign language. If your child is hearing impaired, he or she must be able to respond to voice prompts and referee's whistles.
If we find that a child cannot meet this requirement, we reserve the right to dismiss your child and refund your money during the first week of practice. Parents of participating children must meet the following requirements. Must guarantee transport of participating children to practice sessions and games You must ensure that your child arrives on time for practice sessions and games. You can make arrangements with other parents or babysitters to transport your child, but it is your responsibility to get your child to and from all practice sessions and games.
We will expect your child to participate in all practice sessions and games. In the case of emergencies or illness, you must contact the coaching staff so that we can ensure we have a full team available for the next session. Must promptly pay all fees and provide all required uniforms and equipment for participating children. See the Cost Summary page for more information.
The following are some of the parents and volunteers from last year who have agreed to be references. Feel free to contact any of our references about their experience with our coaching staff and program. Players will learn leadership by example from their coaches and adult volunteers.
To practice leadership, players will be assigned contained leadership duties on a rotating basis, being asked to be in charge of tasks such as counting players, making sure all players complete a drill, selecting another player for a position, collecting or arranging equipment, or demonstrating to others how a task should be performed. Our core values of leadership are as follows.
Leadership should be demonstrated by example. Each individual should be ethical, helpful, and polite at all times. Leaders support the entire team.
Leaders are not stars to be admired; leaders are individuals who share what they know and encourage others to grow. Leaders are modest and friendly. Leaders should not boast about their skills or their team's superiority over another team.
While good natured rivalry is fine, we never encourage bad mouthing, bullying, or teasing other players or other teams. Our coaches are paid for their time through your participation fees, but to keep prices low we rely on the generous support of unpaid volunteers. Note that all volunteers must pass a routine background check see the Background Check page for more information.
We are always looking for responsible adults to fill the following volunteer roles. Equipment Manager 2 The equipment manager keeps track of balls, nets, pads, water container, spare water bottles, food table, and other equipment assigned to each team. Duties include making sure that all equipment stays in good repair and is transported to and from each game, and is securely stored between games.
We prefer to have at least two Equipment Managers for each season so that they can work together or when one must be absent, the other can take over the responsibilities. Snack Coordinator 2+ Our players need healthy snacks before and after games. The Snack Coordinator makes sure that several Snack Providers are scheduled to provide snacks for all players on the team for each game. Snack Coordinators also ensure that a variety of snacks is available for each team, and organize our food table.
We prefer to have at least two Snack Coordinators for each season so that they can collaborate or switch off as needed. Snack Provider 10+ Our players need healthy snacks before and after games. Snack Providers buy sufficient snacks for all players on the team and help the Snack Coordinator set up our food table. We can always use as many volunteer Snack Providers as we can get so that the burden does not always fall on only a handful of individuals.
First Aid Assistant 2+ Our coaches are fully trained in all first aid procedures, including CPR, so if any injuries happen, they will be handled promptly and responsibly by the coaching staff and first responders EMTs or Paramedics will be called in the event of a serious injury. However, there are always minor cuts, bruises, and blisters to attend to, and the First Aid Assistant is responsible for dispensing and applying Band Aids and cold packs and attending to other minor medical needs. Clean up Manager 2+ We must leave the field, stands, and general area clean after each game.
Both teams, the parents, and coaching staff normally pitch in to make this happen, but we need assigned Clean up Managers to ensure that we leave the area in pristine condition. Volunteers must be available for most scheduled soccer games and must have their own transportation. If you are interested in filling any of the volunteer roles described above, please contact Assistant Coach Martinez at 555 555 5555.
For the safety of all participants, all staff members and volunteers must pass a routine background check. Background checks are performed by the local county sheriff's department. To undergo a background check, an individual must report to the sheriff's department and fill out a standard form, providing name and address information and supplying photo identification as well as fingerprints.
This is normally a quick and easy process. Background checks will be paid for by the soccer league. A staff member will contact the sheriff's department to provide names of prospective volunteers to check.
Background checks will be processed by the state highway patrol, which will compare data and fingerprints against nationwide criminal databases. Details returned will be kept confidential by staff members except as required by law , and only those individuals that receive a Pass will be accepted as volunteers. Each individual undergoing a background check has the right to receive the results of that check and to correct any errors on their record.
