Simply the MOST important person in our club, the Volunteer Coach keeps us all running (figuratively and literally!). Without these wonderful men and women, the kids don’t play and the club doesn’t exist- period. At the younger age groups (U6-U8), NO soccer or Coaching experience is required: we’ll give you all the tools you need! You just need to be willing to have fun with the kids! Volunteer Coaches get the benefit of picking their practice night, time, and location from our list of available fields. (Coaches must be 21 years or older) Visit Coaches Corner for more details!
Volunteer Refs are needed to help facilitate games. At U6 – U8, each team provides 1 ref for their 4 home games, and referee training is free and easy! Training is provided by LSC. From U9/up, each team provides 1 volunteer Linesman for every game (Center Ref is provided by the club).
Each season LSC provides in-house training for U6-U8 Referees and U9 Linesman. We ask that each team send 2 folks to this training as many games may have a referee shortage in the older age groups.
These individuals help make the soccer experience as fun as it can be for everyone involved, and are the backbone of our Club. Sample duties of Team Parents include:
- Organizing snacks for games and/or practices
- Making a phone/email tree for ease of communication
- Setting up Team Pictures, Awards, and End of Season Party
- Helping the Coaching staff when they need it
We recommend that teams decide internally what level of outside activities/items they intend to pursue, as these costs can add up. However, a small “team fund” should provide adequate drinks and snacks, and might even provide low-cost awards. Want to know more?
