Coaches Training

Welcome to coaching!

Coaches, more than any other volunteer, have the biggest impact on players’ lives. Coaches wear multiple hats: they teach kids about soccer, and are also cheerleaders, educators, and team administrators, too. Sound familiar? If you can parent, you can likely coach; you already have many skills that a coach needs. If you are new to soccer, MBYSA will teach you the soccer part, which is actually a smaller part of the job than you may think. 

We also welcome non-parents to coach! Parent figures, aunts, uncles, grandparents, older siblings, cousins, trusted friends, and neighbors are all welcome to coach. We especially encourage women to coach! We love and greatly appreciate all of the men who coach but feel it’s important to note that women are often underrepresented in coaching. Seeing women coaches benefits all of our children, as many players have not had a woman coach them before.

What coach jobs are there, and what does it entail?

MBYSA aims to place a Head Coach and an Assistant Coach on each team.

Both coaches go through the same training, and MBYSA sees them as equivalent. We leave it to each team to decide what each coach does as different coaches have their own strengths and expertise in different areas. Usually, Head Coaches take the lead in planning practice and deciding on the lineup for games. Head Coaches are also MBYSA's point of contact for the team and information is sent directly to the Head Coach during the season.

How do I sign up?

Great! Thank you for volunteering to coach!

MBYSA is pleased to be able to present two forms of training this year.   The first is through a program that our affiliate Cal-South uses and recommends as a go to first for all coaches new or returning.  This is called the Cal-South Coaches Association.   The link for this is found in either new or returning coaches drop down links.  The major benefit of this program is that our coaches just need to sign up for the program using the same username and password that you used when signing your child up.  If you did not sign up a child and still want to volunteer, please keep reading.  If you sign up as a coach or volunteer, you will be contacted by a board member on how to get started.

Steps are as outlined for new coaches.
