Arundel Soccer always appreciates people who volunteer to be coaches in the Rec/Development program. The kids benefit from adults joining in and helping them learn to play. If you have been a soccer player before, or led people before, or like sports and just want to take part in activities with your child, then we're looking for you. The question also equally is "what can Arundel Soccer do for you?"
Starting out coaching soccer can be daunting. In many places, the volunteer is the guy who just got stuck with the job when everyone else backed away faster. So, the new volunteer gets maybe a few cones and pinnines, perhaps some soccer balls, and trys to figure it out without much help. It can be sink or swim. That's usually not very good for young players, or the coach, is it?
Let Arundel Soccer help you start coaching in a different way. If you have experience and some modest amount of time to give to kids, we can help you start to coach for a season, or build a longer future pathway for you. Arundel Soccer invests in coaches! In a nutshell:
