Become a Soccer Coach

Soccer is one of the most popular sports in the world, so many communities like ours have soccer teams that need coaches. The majority of youth teams rely on volunteers for their coaches.  To volunteer to become a soccer coach for Cleburne Soccer Association, you will have to follow these steps BEFORE we establish the teams for the season.

 
STEP 1 - SIGN UP

Sign up to coach for the season.  You have to do this every season you want to coach.  We use GotSoccer to process the applications for coaches.  You must have a GotSoccer account.  If you don't have an account, sign up for one.  If you do have one and can't remember your login credentials, contact moc.reccosenrubelc@asc.  If you are ready to apply to coach for the season, CLICK HERE

 
STEP 2 - RISK MANAGEMENT

Undergo a Risk Management check.  All volunteers that will instruct our players (managers and coaches) must have a background check. If you completed Risk management (Background Check) in the Fall, you do not need to do this again and can skip this step.

In order to do a background check, log into your GotSoccer account at https://www.gotsport.com/asp/coaches/:

  • In the gray bar, click on the link called 'Background Checks'
  • Click on the button called 'Submit New Report'
  • Enter your information and click 'Submit'

It will take a few hours for the report to come back with a result.  If you are approved, we can then put you in the coaching pool for a team.  If you are not approved, we cannot have you as a volunteer.  We are not made aware of why you weren't approved, just that you are not approved by the North Texas State Soccer Association.

 
STEP 3 - COACHING EDUCATION

Sign up for a coaching education course.  Every season we try to offer locally a coaching course or clinic that will satisfy at least the minimum requirement for new coaches.  All coaches MUST have a coaching license or diploma in order to continue coaching.  Local coaching education course will be listed below.  Coaching education course links around the state can be found on the menu to your right.

 
STEP 4 - TEAM FACT SHEET

AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN YOUR TEAM - Fill out a team fact sheet. A team fact sheet is needed to give us a little more information about your team such as your team name, uniform colors, age group, assistant coaches, etc... All Head Coaches must fill out a Team Fact Sheet. 

 
STEP 5 - COACHES MEETING

Attend the mandatory coaches meeting at Cleburne High School - 1501 Harlin Dr, Cleburne on MONDAY, February 2, 2015 at 6:30 pm. All head coaches and assistant coaches must attend.

 
STEP 6 - ORDER UNIFORMS

1. Log into your GotSoccer TEAM Account after your roster has been unlocked for you.

2. Call each NEW player on your team and find out their uniform size (Jersey and Shorts). Socks will be sized accordingly and automatically ordered.

3. Go to Uniform Order Form and open it up.

4. Fill in the information for the uniforms you want to order. All players get a new uniform in the Fall.  They must keep this uniform for the Spring.
Contact moc.reccosenrubelc@asc for more details

5. The deadline is FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2015 to get your uniform order in to ensure delivery by the first game.

6. You may also order and pay for Coach Shirts on this form.
