Register your child for the most popular team sport in the world...SOCCER. Volunteer Coaches are needed. Be a part of your child's soccer experience by volunteering to coach a team. All you need is: love for kids, desire to be a role model, an enjoyment of sports, desire for competition, ability to instruct sport skills, willingness to teach life lessons, a few hours a week, a desire to give back, ability to have fun and an aspiration to make a positive difference in our youth.
