Mercy Street Sports is recruiting soccer coaches for the fall and/or spring soccer season. The league includes boys and girls ages 4-14, with the goal of providing a safe environment where youth are taught the basic fundamentals of soccer while promoting a fun, safe, and competitive environment in which the Gospel is shared.
The time commitment for a coach is 1-2 hours a week for practice and 1-2 hours a week for games. Most practices take place on 2 nights out of Tuesday, Wednesdaying, and Thurday. Games are played on Saturdays. The fall season runs from September - November, while the spring seasons run from January - March. We aim to have 3-4 coaches per team so that coaches will have flexibility if they need to miss a practice or game. Training curriculum and equipment is all provided.
The first step to becoming a coach is to complete the volunteer application below. We run background checks on all of our coaches each year. We also require our coaches to complete an online sexual abuse awareness training through Ministry Safe (takes about an hour).
Training for coaches will take place prior to the beginning of each season.
