All of Our Teams are coached and managed by volunteers. As a Volunteer/Coach/Administrator/Staff, we need your assistance in creating a safe environment for all involved. For the safety of our players, all volunteers must pass a background check as well as obtain safety certifications in order to participate in any club activities.



No matter what your soccer story is, the club will support you along the way—offering tools for team management and training including:

  • Assistance at practice from trainers ( U6 – U10)
  • Demosphere—a sports team management app that is great for team communication and planning (U8+)

Please complete the steps below to get started and thank you for volunteering!
