Welcome to the Coaches Page

Coaching is a wonderful gift to both the player and the parent.  Here at East Sac Soccer,  it is our priority to provide every coach with the tools they will need.  From a first time coach, to the parent on  their second or third coaching season, we hope this page is useful.   Coaching can be very rewarding for parents.  While teaching soccer skills,  you are also teaching life lessons.  With your help, our children learn how to work as part of a team, how to persevere in the face of adversity, and most importantly, how to succeed not based on a win-loss record.  Success can be measured in effort, personal progress and positive attitudes. You have a wonderful opportunity to build self-esteem amongst the children in our community, regardless of their soccer ability.

As a coach, it is important to have a fun and friendly approach towards your players and parents. It is equally important to be organized and on-time for practices and games. Establish an atmosphere of respect around your team.  Every member of the team is important and should be treated accordingly.  Every player should play at least half of every game. At your initial team meeting, clearly outline your expectations and be sure to include comments on respectful communication to fellow team members, opponents, parents and especially referees. Remember; you are the team leader and the most effective leaders lead by example, not just words.


Every coach will read and adhere to the East Sac Soccer Coaching Code of Conduct!
