In addition to helping youth develop technical and tactical skills on the field, coaches serve as mentors and role models for the players encouraging their attendance at SBU academic programs and stressing the importance of education. Those who are coaching through a work study program are also required to commit at least half a day to working at the SBU office for staff meetings.

  • Boys: U12, U15, U16, U17, U19

Commitment:
