Coaches Corner

Coach Information 

DFAC dedicates this section to the most important people in recreational soccer today — the recreational parent soccer coach. The success of our program relies on volunteers like you!  We hope that you, the recreational soccer coach, will one day look back with pride at the opportunities you created for learning and enjoyment. A supportive, child-centered, positive experience in recreational soccer is vital to the growth of our sport.

No experience is necessary to be a recreational soccer coach. All volunteers should attend a coaches meeting prior to the start of the season. There you will receive a roster for your team, a coaches manual, and equipment.

In addition, we offer a coaches clinic where our professional coaching staff will equip you with the tools, skills, and techniques needed to guide your team through the season. Clinics are held before the start of each season.

Thank you for devoting your time to becoming a recreational soccer coach!

(To sign up to be a recreational soccer coach, please indicate that in the Volunteer Role section during registration, or click here to send an email.)
