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
This applies to ALL Head Coaches & Assistant Coaches & Team Managers

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
This applies to ALL Head Coaches & Assistant Coaches & Team Managers

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
This applies to ALL Head Coaches & Assistant Coaches

All coaches need continuing Coaching Education. No matter what level you are coaching at, you will need the knowledge and skills to properly develop players.

At a minimum, coaches MUST take the Fundamentals of Coaching Soccer course online at www.soccercoach.training

The Intermediate Soccer Coaching course is required for all U12-U19 Coaches

 
STEP 4 - TEAM & COACH 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
