Volunteer Rec Coaching
You are a Great Soccer Coach!!!
(Even if you don't know it yet)
Dear Beachside Impact Parents:
I am writing to you today to tell you how VITALLY IMPORTANT our volunteer coaches are, and how grateful we all are for the time you generously give from your very busy lives. Our soccer community needs you to volunteer to coach. It keeps soccer affordable. It is easier than you think. And your kids will never forget it!
First and foremost, volunteers help us keep soccer affordable for you and your kids. Paid professional coaches are awesome, and definitely have a lot of technical skill and soccer experience, but they come at a cost. As any family with a Competitive level soccer player knows, a paid professional coach costs between $1000 to $2500 per player per year. Every year we work hard to keep costs down, but every year there are more and more fees: registration fees, referee fees, league fees, field use fees, lighting fees, equipment fees, field maintenance fees - it makes our heads spin.
Our generous sponsor, Schumacher Orthodontics, helps us defray those costs, but there is only so much they can do. Despite all of these financial pressures, we have kept our per-player cost one of the lowest in the county. But, if we have to hire professional coaches, the price of playing soccer goes up - possibly as high as $1,000 per player. If that happens, so many deserving kids will be priced out of playing. Without your volunteering, soccer is simply not affordable.

Your Kids Will Never Forget it!
Kids are unbelievably proud when their mom or dad coaches their team. Being there each week to watch them practice and play is a great show of support. Being out on the field with them is even better! You get to be right there in the trenches with them, teaching and learning right alongside them!
Are you a little nervous about coaching because you've never done it before? Your son or daughter probably feels the same way when they try soccer for the first time. Your leadership and example - that it is good and brave to try new things even if they make you nervous - makes you an awesome role-model for your child, and for all of our kids.
And I can't tell you how special it is that years later you will be at WalMart or Publix, and a kid will wave and say, "Hey, Coach!"
So, Get Off the Sidelines! And get in the game! Our club needs you. Our kids need you. And our soccer community needs you!
