Soccer Coaching

TCYS is now recruiting for head coaches for the 2024 Recreation League Season!

Enthusiastic and positive volunteers are needed each season to coach youth soccer teams.  Coaching a team of youngsters can be a tremendously rewarding experience, giving you the opportunity to help young players grow and learn, face challenges, and experience both success and tribulation.


No prior coaching experience necessary!  As a youth soccer coach, you will be provided resources and support to help you succeed.  Some resources can be found below.  If you have a child playing in the league, you can coach his or her team!

Though no requirement, but highly suggested, is learning essential fundamentals for soccer coaching from U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF).  There are courses available to advance your soccer coaching with licenses and supplemental courses to further grow your knowledge and skills.  The free entry level course is the Introduction to Grassroots Coaching and highly suggested for all new volunteer coaches.  Beyond this entry level course, USSF offers Online Courses for soccer games played at 4v4, 7v7, 9v9, and 11v11.

All coaches must successfully complete a Background Check, complete SafeSport Training, and create a GotSport account.
