The Natick Soccer Club fields as many as 50-60 travel teams each season and relies exclusively on its volunteer coaches (a community of parent and non parent volunteers with varying levels of backgrounds and experience). Due to the size of the program we need volunteer travel team coaches every year at every age level from Grade 3 to Grade 12.
What’s the Commitment?
Travel coaches are expected to run a minimum of two practices a week and will play in the BAYS league which has a 10 week season (one game every Saturday). The club encourages travel teams to participate in tournaments and any other additional clinics or additional soccer activity.
How to Apply
Anyone interested in being a head coach for a travel team completes a new application each year (this applies to ALL current coaches regardless of level or experience, as well as new coaches). If you are interested in being an assistant coach, there is no need to apply. Head coaches will select their assistant coaches after they are assigned to a team.
The travel committee reviews all applications plus any survey feedabck submitted in a previous season by NSC families, and may ask for a follow on interview, particularly where we have multiple applicants per age group.
Interviews for coaching positions will occur in late June/early July with coaches assigned by mid-to-late July.
Each year, the Club’s Board of Directors forms a Travel Committee which during the spring/early summer solicits coaching applications from anyone interested in coaching in the fall (and/or spring). It is the Club’s policy and the Travel Committee’s duty to objectively review ALL coaching assignments. Only the Travel Committee has the authority to appoint coaches to a team. Assistant coaches do not need to complete the application but may want to express their interest to the travel director for each age group if they would like to be an assistant coach.
