What kind of volunteer roles are available with Deerfoot United FC?
Coaches and Assistant Coaches are always welcome, as are board members.
Here is a list of roles:
Coach – guides the development of the players throughout the season. Works with Assistant Coach to run drills, exercises, and scrimmages during practices. The Coach is ultimately responsible for having the team show up at games and helping the players have a great time. Experience is NOT necessary, only a desire to help our young players improve in soccer. Coaching materials, online videos, coaching clinics/seminars, are all provided at no cost. Definitely one of the most rewarding of all volunteer roles.
Assistant Coach – helps the Coach with all of the above and steps in when the Coach is unavailable for a game/practice.
Team Manager – helps the coaches by communicating with the parents and arranging a snack schedule and a call-out parent to help with calling about schedule changes.
