I would like to be a coach, assistant coach, or team parent. What should I do?

Firstly, THANK YOU! The success of our program depends on the spirit and energy of our volunteers. We need coaches, assistants and team parents! If you would like to volunteer as a coach or assistant coach please click on this link. No experience is necessary, we will train you!

What is required to be a coach?

First, we ask that you attend the coaches meetings. All requirements for coaching are set by our parent organization, Cal South. All Head and Assistant Coaches must go through Cal South Risk Management (fingerprinting). If you have already been fingerprinted through our club you do not need to do it again. Coaches will also be required to attend preseason meetings run by the club.

What is required to be a team parent?

The team parent is the liaison between the Coach and parents. The team parent usually assigns the snack schedule, handles Opening Day/Picture Day information and/or plans the “End of the Season Party”. In addition, the coach may make other requests, such as asking the team parent to make a few phone calls reminding parents and players of practice times, game changes, etc.

How will I be placed on a team?

Considerable effort is made to balance the teams and provide competition that is enjoyable to both players and parents alike. Players are placed on teams using the following criteria: • Balance between olders and youngers on each team • Buddy Requests (must be reciprocated) • By school and/or location

How many practices will there be?

Each team will typically practice twice per week. Depending on their work or personal schedules, coaches usually pick the best day, time and location that will fit into their schedule. Typically practices last 1 hour.

Can I be on a team with all my friends?

We will do our best to honor at least one of your requests. Our most important goal in making placements is balancing the teams to provide competition that is enjoyable for everyone involved. This is why we can only allow one buddy request and that request must be reciprocated.

Why can’t I choose who I want to be on a team with?

Unfortunately, when players and/or parents start choosing teams, the teams can become unbalanced. Volunteer division coordinators spend a tremendous amount of time putting teams together to ensure a positive experience for all players.

How can I help?

There are many ways for parents to help. This is a community organization and we want everyone involved. City SC Lake Elsinore is run by a large group of volunteers. We invite you to join us for a fun experience assuring a great season for our kids. Some volunteer positions start and finish before the season starts, some may last the season, and some positions involve simply one event. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us.

What are my responsibilities as a parent?

You are responsible for getting your child to practices, games, and other team functions on time (for games, this often means at least 30 minutes prior to game time). And, of course to be supportive and to cheer for every player on every team!

Do you have an All Star program?

For the fall season – yes. All Star players for ages U8, U10, U12 and U14 are selected and go on to represent City SC Lake Elsinore at local All Star tournaments in December.
