One of the toughest things for youth soccer organizations to do is get volunteer coaches for recreational soccer. You hear all the usual excuses; I'm too busy, I have to work, I don't know anything about soccer, etc. Some of them are legitimate but others are because people legitimately do not know anything about the game. The good news is, "You don't have to know anything about soccer". Being a soccer coach is about managing the players and the parents first. There are questions players and parents want to have the answers to:
Where am I supposed to be?
What time am I supposed to be there?
What am I supposed to do once I get there?
If you can answer these three questions, you have already won the biggest battle of coaching a recreational soccer team. To summarize, it boils down to communication. Everything else you need to know to coach a soccer team can be learned on the internet with a few evenings of research and our Youth Development classes we provide for you.
So don't be afraid of the game, come on out and coach a team.
