OVERVIEW
Rec League Coaches work with one team of girls and/or boys within the SBU Recreational Soccer League during Fall and/or Spring Seasons. Coaches run short practices and manage games for youth that compete against the other teams within the SBU league, which consists of 9 age groups and 62 teams. Coaches not only share the joy of playing the sport but also reinforce the values that sport helps develop (teamwork, discipline, respect, etc).

WHEN
* Saturday morning/afternoon in Fall and Spring. Coaches volunteer a set 1.5 - 2 hour slot between 9am - 5pm. The time slot is dependent on the age group being coached.
* Fall runs September - November
* Spring runs March - June

WHERE
* Macombs Dam Field: 161st Street between River and Jerome Avenues. The field is on the south side of Yankee Stadium across from Gate 4.

* Patterson Playground: College Avenue at 147th Street.

Coaches are only required to be at one site.

COMMITMENT
* Coaches must be able to commit to being present for at least 1.5 hours every Saturday (excluding holiday weekends) during the season.
* One season commitment minimum, but two seasons is preferred.
* Coaches should understand they will be the point person for contact with families and players and willing to make phone calls home to ensure players are aware of games/other important news.

QUALIFICATIONS
Previous soccer knowledge is not required, but enthusiasm for working with children is a necessity.

TRAINING
We will provide volunteers with orientation materials, coaching training, and a coaching manual. A formal orientation/ training will be held prior to each season. Coaches will be assigned to age groups (age 4-19) based on experience, availability, and preference.

BENEFITS
In addition to helping provide the resources and support to allow under-resourced youth the opportunity to participate in an organized sport, coaches will have opportunities for professional coaching training and will be connected to a network of caring volunteers for fun soccer-related events throughout the year.
