Coaches Needed for Spring 2014


                  The Owen County Youth Soccer League is looking for coaches for teams in all age groups – U6, U8, U10, and U12 – for the coming spring season (March through May).  OCYSL is currently compiling its spring rosters and needs to have the positions filled before March 1st.  The U6 and U8 teams play at the OCYSL fields in Monterey, and practice at least once a week.  The U10 and U12 teams are traveling recreational teams and travel to games scheduled through the Central Kentucky Soccer Scheduling Conference and through other nearby leagues.  The U10 and U12 teams practice at least twice per week.

Requirements for the positions are:

·               A desire to help Owen County children have fun while learning the game of soccer;

·               An understanding that learning and fun are most important in coaching youth soccer;

·               Agreement to attend coaches training;

·               A criminal background check;

·               Candidates for head coach positions must be 18 years of age or older; and

·               Candidates for assistant coach positions must be at least 16 years of age.

While not required, experience playing soccer is a plus as is previous coaching experience in any sport.  Also, all OCYSL coaches are required to attend and complete the United States Youth Soccer Youth Module.  OCYSL will provide information on how to complete this requirement and will host one session on Saturday, March 8, 2014, free of charge.
