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.
Click on each section below to find out and complete the requirements to coaching soccer each season.
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 email@example.com.

Undergo a Risk Management check. All volunteers that will instruct our players (managers and coaches) must have a background check.
IF YOU HAVE SUBMITTED A BACKGROUND CHECK AFTER JUNE 1, 2016,
YOU DO NOT NEED A NEW ONE UNTIL JUNE 1, 2017
In order to do a background check, log into your GotSoccer account at https://www.gotsport.com/asp/coaches/:
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.
