Coaching Information

How can I volunteer?

What else should I know?

I've never coached before, what should I do?

  • Make sure you, your players, and their families are familiar with the Code of Conduct and Social Media policy . Coaches will need to sign the Coach's Pledge, and Families will need to sign the Parent's Pledge acknowledging they have read and agree to follow these policies. (These are provided in your Coach's folder.)
  • Have each player's parent/guardian sign the season's Medical Release Waiver right away BEFORE the player even begins their first practice. (This is provided in your Coach's folder).


We all started where you are, even if we've played the sport ourselves. Here's what we've found to be helpful for planning practices:

Frequently Asked Questions

There are various places to practices in the community -- public parks, some churches, and some schools. If you're unsure where these locations are, contact us. If you need to schedule a practice at the Kroger Soccer Complex, contact your Field Scheduler -- Rob Jeffries for U10-U19 and David Fite for U4-U8.

To volunteer, complete the following steps:

  1. Register as a Coach in our registration tool by signing in and clicking the "Register a Volunteer " button on our Demosphere Registration Page.                                                                                                                                                  Note: This is the same tool used to register your player, so you can use the same account information you used then.
  2. Email us letting us know if you intend to be a head coach, assistant, etc. Please also note if you are paired with another coach.
  3. Complete the Concussion Training & Abuse Prevention Training using the buttons on your Member Profile within your StackSports account you used to register as a coach.
