Mid Valley Soccer Club

Join the Team!

Mid Valley Soccer Club is always looking for volunteers to coach our recreational and competitive soccer teams. It's a great opportunity to get involved in our community and work with local youth players. We have outlined key role and responsibilities of a youth soccer coach. 

Role of a Coach:
Coaches have a leadership role. You are a role model and should set the example for the players within our community. For coaches to succeed, and for the kids to realize the best the sport has to offer, coaches must adhere to the code of conduct set-forth by Mid Valley Soccer Club. MVSC believes in fair play within our organization. Fair play can be described in three words: Behavior, Good Manners, and Respect. Please review the Coaches Code of Conduct and our clubs core values. Coaches should perform their duties so they reflect their knowledge of the game in a manner that emphasizes good intentions and shows a proper respect for the efforts of the players, coaches and referees. Remember, the kids are watching!

The most important responsibilities of a youth soccer coach are to:
» provide a safe, healthy environment for the practice and play of soccer.

» provide mature, adult supervision for young athletes.

You must conduct yourself at all times with these two important facts in mind. During games, you share these responsibilities with the referees and opposing coaches. They must, at all times, supersede any other concern.  In some cases, you may be asked to intervene with any unruly spectator on your side.

Knowledge of the Game
Coaches are responsible for learning and understanding the Laws of Soccer for their age group. Please read and understand the league rules. FIFA's Laws of the Game have been modified to meet the U.S. Soccer Federation's (USSF's) player development initiatives.  MVSC will provide access to links which contain important information about training your players and age-appropriate content.  Questions?  Please reach out to us!

How to become a coach:

Step 1: 
Register as a volunteer through our registration platform. All coaches, volunteers and "helpers" must register before they can be on the field with our kids.  Sometimes it takes a village and if you are interested in NOT being a head coach, please consider being an assistant coach or team manager.  All help is appreciated!
