One Team. One Club. One Community.

Recreational Coaching

At CSA, we recognize that we couldn’t be the team we are without our coaching staff. Because we appreciate each coach’s commitment to our youth players, we’re excited to offer coaching incentives for the 2023-2024 seasons.

 

Some of the great benefits of becoming a CSA Volunteer Recreational Head Coach include:
  • One free player registration into a recreational team, futures, or academy soccer program with the completion of the MSYSA Grassroots courses ($25+ per course) for the age group in which you are volunteered to coach. The courses may be completed in person or online.
  • Required coaching gear and coaching attire (shirt) provided by CSA
  • Medical, dental, and liability insurance provided through the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association at no cost.
  • Mentoring and curriculum to follow for coaching support, including USSF-recommended coaching techniques by age group.
  • Free or discounted attendance to the United States Soccer Coaches convention.

 

IMPORTANT: In order to receive a registration credit, you must first submit your coaching license to recadoc@calvertsoccer.org. You will then receive a code to redeem during your player's registration. Do not register your player before receiving a code; the credit is not retroactive.

 

Whether you’ve coached with us before or are looking to join an organization with a deep love for the game, we want to hear from you. To learn more about becoming a coach, contact Jesse Howe, Assistant Director of Coaching.
