We appreciate your support

Coal City Soccer Club relies on the help of our parents. Without them, we simply could not put on the quality soccer experience that we have become accustomed to. The following volunteer options are available and mandatory for every family playing soccer with us. Each family must choose one of these options, but only one parent must volunteer per family. Everyone is charged a $25.00 volunteer fee during registration, once the commitment has been fulfilled, you will be refunded the $25.00 at the end of the season.

How to volunteer

  • Head Coach

    Coaching is the most time consuming and rewarding of the available coaching positions. Experience is not required to coach with CCSC. In fact, most of our coaches had no prior experience playing/coaching soccer prior to signing up. We provide a go-to board member as a director of coaching as well training sessions for new coaches. You will be required to attend a mandatory meeting and attend all practices and games or be responsible for finding an assistant coach to take your place.

  • Assistant Coach

    Your role is to assist the head coach. You will have the option of attending meetings and will be required to attend all practices and games. If you cannot attend a scheduled practice or game, you are responsible for assuring there is a head coach or assistant coach for your team that day.

Coal City Soccer Club greatly appreciates the time given by all volunteers, especially coaches. Our coaches have a unique opportunity to impact the lives of our players in ways they sometimes wouldn't even consider. We look to have outstanding citizens and role models first, great soccer enthusiasts second. Coaches are subject to a background check and if there is any question or red flag, coaching applicants are not allowed to coach.

Coaches Code of Conduct
Disqualifying Offenses

Coaching in the Coal City Soccer Club, while appreciated, is a privilege, not a right. This list of Disqualifying Offenses was developed from Ohio Senate Bill 187 and as part of SAY's volunteer screening criteria and is applicable for coaches. While this list will be the de-facto guide used by SAY in determining what action is to be taken in regards to the results of the applicants background check, other factors may also be considered; such as the laws of a particular state in which the applicant resides, and mitigating circumstances. The Coal City Soccer Club Board of Directors reserves the right to prohibit a volunteer from coaching for offenses and activities deemed to be not in the best representation of the club- in addition to the below list.

Game scores will be copied and pasted to Facebook based on what team parents submit.  If scores are incorrect or names are wrong for scoring or spelled wrong, the issue needs to be taken up with the team parent.  Board members are not at every game so we do not know the specifics of the games.
