Outdoor Soccer cannot run without Volunteer Parent Coaches. No experience necessary. There will be a coaches meeting where mock practice will occur. Drill books will also be available for coaches.
Each session will have a warm-up, developmental skills for 20 minutes and then a game (except for the U5). Each Coach will get a small booklet of warm-ups and drills to do with their groups. Please have as many water-breaks as possible through-out the sessions. Kids can wear hats if it is sunny out for the younger ages. Under 11 & 13 are not permitted to wear hats (due to potential hazards on the field).
On the first day, players will get uniforms. Under 5 & Under 7 only get jerseys. Under 9, Under 11 & 13 get shorts, socks, jerseys. all kids will get a waterbottle and small bag.
Coaches will eventually need to complete the Respect In Sport online course before the end of May and get a criminal record check ($10) that will reimbursed when handed in. CRC will be seen only by BYSI Executive and kept in a locked filing cabinet until destroyed.
Coaching is a rewarding activity. It is fun, you get some exercise and kids look up to you. BYSI CANNOT finish making teams without volunteer parent coaches. Without coaches, we cannot start the season.
