Reasons to become a coach....

Coaching children is a very rewarding experience. And coaching your own child's team can be one of the most rewarding experiences of all! Coaches are pivotal to having children get the youth soccer experience. If youth soccer organizations don't have enough coaches, registration is scaled back and kids who want to play for the Scottdale Soccer Club are turned away.


Do you have little or no experience with soccer? No problem! The Scottdale Soccer Club will teach you, based on the age level you are coaching. Unique age-appropriate coach training is one of our abilities. If you plan to be at your child's soccer practices and games, you'll also have time to be your child's coach.


To become an Scottdale Soccer Club coach, you must be certified in the age level you are coaching. Certification takes three easy steps. First, fill out a registration form through our online registration system. Then, submit your clearances (PA State Criminal Clearance, PA Child Abuse Clearance, and FBI Fingerprint Clearance or Residency Affidavit) to the PAWest Risk Management Website, along with your SafeSport Certificate.  Lastly, if necessary, complete the appropriate coaching license or age appropriate youth module online. It's only a few hours. We also have access to the new Coaching Manuals that help you with training plans and activities for the age you are coaching. 


Coaches are essential to the game. They teach children soccer skills and help develop a healthy, positive attitude, teamwork and good sportsmanship. Coaching is a rewarding experience because you have the opportunity to build a child's self-esteem, help them learn new skills and just have a lot of fun.


Contact anyone from the Scottdale Soccer Club if you are ready to become a coach.
