Volunteer Soccer Coaches Needed In Sabine Parish

The Sabine Parish Soccer – AYSO Region 1670 is desperately looking for volunteers for the Spring 2021 soccer season.

The following is the post made to the Sabine Parish Soccer – AYSO Region 1670 Facebook with the volunteer information:

Unfortunately, we were not able to secure enough volunteers for a spring session. We REALLY do not want to let soccer go in Sabine Parish and we need your help to get it going again. We need volunteers. Roughly, we need 1 head coach for every 8 kids. Over 8 kids: we will also need assistant coaches.

We get it. Soccer isn’t a super familiar sport to most people in this region, so that can make one feel uneasy and unwilling to help. Be assured that we won’t let you fail. You will be guided if you don’t know. There are practice plans for the age groups already laid out for you. What we need are not soccer-gurus (although, you are welcome!), but we need adults with positive attitudes who will encourage the players and enforce team work and sportsmanship and hard work. Think about it: you’ve got to take your child to practice and games anyway, may as well volunteer to help out.

Something AYSO prides ourselves in is that all volunteers working with kids will clear a background check first. Safety of the players is important to all of us, and this is one way we support that.

Kids LOVE soccer. Nonstop running, kicking, and fun! It is a great sport to help with speed and agility for other sports, too. We want to keep that going in this community.

Reply on the post or send a message if you are willing to help! I have three volunteers who committed to spring (I haven’t forgotten about you!!). If we can get 10 more to commit, We should be all set!

Reach out to one of us if you will volunteer!

Volunteers are encouraged to contact Andrew Newman, Haley McCarty, Valarie Williams, Flint Miller, or Shawn Bozzell. Their contact information can be found on the Sabine Parish Soccer – AYSO Region 1670 Facebook page.
