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.

When:

  • Fall Season: late August - early December

  • Boys: U12, U15, U16, U17, U19

Commitment:

Head Coaches lead practices twice a week, generally Tuesday and Thursday evenings and manage games on Saturdays or Sundays during the season (Fall and Spring). One weekend practice a week is held during the winter months. Assistant Coaches should have consistent availability as well and help support the Head Coach at practices and games. Coaches ideally are able to commit to at least one soccer year (late August - mid June).
