Volunteer opportunity description

Overview:

South Bronx United is seeking volunteer coaches for both the SBU girls recreational and competitive travel soccer teams. In addition to helping a team of girls develop technical and tactical skills on the field, coaches serve as mentors and role models for the players, sharing the joy of playing the sport, but more importantly reinforcing the values that sport helps develop (teamwork, discipline, respect, etc)

When:

Recreational Program:

·         Fall Season: early Sept - November

·         Spring Season: mid March - June

Travel Program:

·         Fall Season: mid August - early December

·         Winter Season: January - early March (Only one practice a week)

·         Spring Season: mid March -  June

Where:

Recreational Program: Practices/games are held every Saturday in fall and spring at Mullaly Park, Jerome Ave @ 165th St.

Positions Available: Girls: U12, U14, U19

Commitment:

Recreational Program: Coaches are paired with another coach to manage teams once a week on Saturdays in Fall and Spring for approximately 1.5-2 hours each session.

Travel Program: Head Coaches lead practices twice a week, generally Tuesday and Thursday evenings and manage games on Sundays during the season (Fall and Spring). One weekend practice a week is held during the winter months. Assistant Coaches should have consistent availability as well and help support the Head Coach at practices and games. Coaches are asked to be able to commit to at least one season.

Qualifications: 

Previous coaching experience is not a necessity, but enthusiasm for working with children and a strong knowledge of soccer is.

Benefits:

Recreational Program: 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 trainings and will be connected to a network of caring volunteers for fun, soccer related events throughout the year.
