Referees: Many of our referees are middle and high school students. We ask that you also support these students who are working hard for the program. They do a great job!
Coaching: We are always in need of coaches! Please consider coaching your child’s team as the more coaches we have, the smaller the teams are and kids get more playing time! No experience necessary and training is available. Coaches must register online and complete a short background check - Lander Valley Youth Soccer will reimburse you for the cost of the background check.
Board: Please contact any board member if you are interested in volunteering some time to rec soccer and helping to improve the league.
*Players and parents will be contacted by their coach following the coaches’ meeting the week of March 18. Players may not be changed to another team without board approval.*
Bring on the Lander Thunder!
