Coaches & Managers

Coaches & Managers

Coaches and managers are the backbone of our Club.  Team coaches oversee drills, teach soccer skills and the rules of the game, promote sportsmanship, facilitate small-sided games, manage team equipment, and provide players with a fun, supportive environment.  Managers provide information to players and parents, provide support and assistance to coaches, and distribute uniforms.  Coaches are expected to complete a Coach – Code of Conduct.  Parents are also expected to complete a Parent - Code of Conduct.

Criminal Record Checks

You cannot act as a Club team official and cannot be given a BCSA ID card until you submit a completed Criminal Record Check to our Club Registrar.  There must always be at least one adult BCSA carded team official present at every game and practice.  A BCSA referee will automatically default the game if a team does not have an adult BCSA carded team official present.

Gym Practices

U6, U7, and most U8 teams hold their mid-week practice in a school gym.  The contracts for the school gyms do not begin until the second week of October.  Prior to then, teams can practice on unlit school AW fields.
