Interested in Coaching a SCSA Force team?
St. Charles Force Coach Selection
St. Charles Soccer Association (SCSA) appreciates and welcomes all those who volunteer their time coaching. If you are interested in coaching, please complete the coaching application form on our website and email your expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Technical Director will contact you. All coaches need to complete appropriate coach screening paperwork, (CPIC, CAR and Respect in Sport - Activity Leader). Coach selections are processed by the St. Charles Force Technical Director, who has final responsibility for selection, training and monitoring of coaches.
At the Premier levels the club tries to utilize non-parent head coaches who have appropriate education and experience. However, in the event a non-parent coach is not available, the club will elect to name a parent as a Head Coach, provided that they have above adequate experience and/or certification.
When selecting coaches, the following criteria are used:
- Coaching Experience / Levels
- Playing Experience
- Gender if applicable
- Willingness to learn and advance
We ensure that all our coaches are continually receiving education, via LTPD Certification programs or our in-house SCSA Coach Workshops. Our Technical Staff also works with our coaches in team training sessions and/or games to ensure that they have their questions asked and to guide them along the Club Philosophy for Coaching Methodology.
Please read our Coaches Handbook for more information.
NOTE: If more than one coach is applying for the same team an interview process will be conducted by the Technical Staff. The applicants will be decided by the Technical Staff, with all parties notified of the decision in a timely manner.
