What it takes to coach

If you . . .

  1. want to help the youth of our community learn about soccer
  2. are willing to grow and learn about soccer and how to teach youth about the game
  3. recognize youth sports is for the benefit of the athlete and NOT the parent or coach

then you have the foundation to be a successful youth soccer coach.

Becoming a Volunteer Coach

All volunteers interested in becoming a coach should submit a coaching application with the program they're interested in coaching (TRAVEL, RECREATION or TOPSoccer).

To ensure a safe and appropriate environment for learning the game of soccer, MUSC coaches must meet the minimum standards set by the NJ Youth Soccer Association for the level of competition in which the volunteer wants to coach (Travel, Recreation or TOPSoccer). The below table summarizes the requirements and the attached link provides detailed instructions on how to obtain the required coaching prerequisites.
