Mercy Street's vision is to build Christian leaders in West Dallas, and we believe team sports can play a huge role in this. Your role as a coach/mentor would be to teach the fundamentals of the sport, while using it as a tool to share the Gospel, teach various life skills, and instill Christian values.
As a coach, you would be responsible for coaching your team one or two evenings a week and being present at the game on Saturday. There are several coaches per team so you can split up the responsibilities. Training curriculum and equipment are provided.
We begin our Spring season with coaches training in February. Practices begin March 1st and the season ends in May. It is co-ed soccer with the ages ranging from Pre-K through middle school, and we play in the local YMCA league.

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 during the week with games being played either on Friday nights or Saturdays. The commitment is less for the younger t-ball teams and increases with the older age groups.
Our goal is to have 3-4 coaches per team so that teams will be covered if a coach has to miss. The league includes boys and girls ages 4-18 (co-ed through age 12; girls softball ages 13-18).
