SMYO coaches are volunteers! Most, but not all, are parents who volunteer to coach their child's soccer team.
Each season, SMYO provides classroom and field training. In the classroom, the Soccer Commissioners brief safety, soccer rules,
organization and program policies, and more. Classroom is mandatory for all coaches. One field training session is given
before each season for coaches only.
The Soccer Commissioners have collected many tools to help coaches, from web sites to rule/guidance books. The following items
will help our coaches have knowledge of the game and how to teach that to our youth.
MANDATORY SOCCER COACHES TRAINING
If you wish to be a head coach or assistant, you must attend training. We recommend all new coaches attend the Sunday session.
U6 and U8 Meeting and Meet the Coach
Each season, we offer a dedicated meeting with all PW and U7 Coaches and Parents.
