  Volunteer Coaching

The recreational soccer programs run by the Charleswood Youth Soccer Association are provided totally through volunteer effort.  The costs of providing equipment, facilities, referees, and management are borne by the fees collected, but everthing else comes down to a commitment from the parents and others to help out.

The biggest commitment for volunteers is for coaching, assistant coaching, and managing.  The normal stream for a volunteer parent coach is to start with mini-soccer, and progress up through the programs along with the child.  Coaches attend training seminars, where they receive the assistance needed to learn how to teach and run their teams.  The training seminars are paid for by the CYSA.  Certifications received from the training sessions are national in scope, and are thus transferable if a family moves somewhere else in the country.  (All the programs run by the CYSA are accredited through the Manitoba Soccer Assocation and Canadian Soccer Association, and thus use accredited coaches and referees as well). 

Coaches are required to submit to background checks, and must take a provincially administered "Respect in Sports" online program.
