Coaches' FAQ

WHAT KIND OF INSTRUCTORS/COACHES DO YOU HAVE FOR THE CLASSES?

Our coaches help to run our classes, clinics, camps and the SAM SELECT Combine. They are an integral aspect of our SAM Soccer organization, as they are responsible for instilling the love of the sport into children as young as three years old. We are thrilled to have each and every one of these coaches as a part of our team. 

All coaches must go through criminal background checks in the hiring process.

WHO COACHES THE RECREATIONAL SOCCER LEAGUE TEAMS?

Recreational teams are primarily coached by volunteers - parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, siblings or friends. However, some teams do have paid coaches.

WHAT DISTINGUISHES A RECREATIONAL COACH FROM A SELECT COACH?

While a coach in SAM SELECT can be a volunteer, these individuals often have a vast amount of prior coaching experience.  Additionally, in order to be a SAM SELECT coach one must have an "E" coaching license or higher.  

HOW DO I REGISTER TO BECOME A RECREATIONAL OR SELECT COACH?

To register to be a coach with SAM visit www.samsoccer.org and click REGISTER in the top right hand corner. After logging into the system select Register as a Volunteer. Answer all the questions until you complete the registration. We will then place you with your requested team after passing a criminal background check. Learn more about this in the Policies section on this website.
