I don't know anything about soccer. Can I still help coach?
Posted Sep 1, 2017

Yes! IEYSA provides training and materials. Being a coach involves a willingness to learn and requires skills you probably already have in addition to soccer knowledge. If you are uncertain, start with being an assistant coach. IEYSA's Director will be happy to try to match you up with somebody with a little more experience.

Where can I obtain coaching equipment?
Posted Sep 1, 2017

IEYSA will provide each coach with some basic equipment every year: some cones, a soccer ball and some additional supplies. Otherwise, coaches are expected to provide their own equipment and players are expected to provide shinguards, cleats and a ball. You can pick up your equipment at the fall coaches meeting or you can come by the IEYSA office during open hours or by appointment.

Can you recommend some websites where I can learn more about coaching soccer?
