UMPQUA UNITED SOCCER CLUB

Coaches

                                                    Join the Team!

Umpqua United Soccer Club is always looking for volunteers to coach our recreational and competitive soccer teams. It's a great opportunity to get involved in our community and work with local youth players. We have outlined key role and responsibilities of a youth soccer coach. 

Role of a Coach:
Coaches have a leadership role. You are a role model and should set the example for the players within our community. For coaches to succeed, and for the kids to realize the best the sport has to offer, coaches must adhere to the code of conduct set-forth by Umpqua United Soccer Club. UUSC believes in fair play within our organization. Fair play can be described in three words: Behavior, Good Manners and Respect. Please review the Coaches Code of Conduct and our clubs core values. Coaches should perform their duties so they reflect their knowledge of the game in a manner that emphasizes good intentions and shows a proper respect for the efforts of the players, coaches and referees. Remember, the kids are watching!

The most important responsibilities of a youth soccer coach are to:
» provide a safe, healthy environment for the practice and play of soccer.

» provide mature, adult supervision for young athletes.

You must conduct yourself at all times with these two important facts in mind. During games, you share these responsibilities with the referees and opposing coaches. They must, at all times, supersede any other concern.


Knowledge of the Game
Coaches are responsible for learning and understanding the Laws of Soccer for their age group. Please read and understand the league rules. FIFA's Laws of the Game have been modified to meet the U.S. Soccer Federation's (USSF's) player development initiatives.

How to become a coach:

Step 1:
Register as a volunteer through our registration platform. All coaches, volunteers and "helps" must register before they can be on the field with our kids. 

Step 2:
Complete a background check through OYSA. Please Click Here to get started.   

Step 3: Complete the SafeSport training. More information on SafeSport can be found below. 

Background Checks

SafeSport Training

The SafeSport training is required of any head coach, assistant coach, team manager, volunteer or team "helper". The first time that the course is taken will require the full training (approximately 90 minutes). Each time thereafter (annually) is the refresher course (approximately 15 minutes). Your First Name, Last Name and Email MUST match exactly what is in U.S. Soccer Connect (Affinity) for your training certificate to load into the system. If your coaching/board/parent information in Affinity says William, then that is what you want SafeSport to have as well – not Bill. If you are unsure how your information is entered into U.S. Soccer Connect, please reach out to the club office at 541-672-5089 or by emailing [email protected] If all 3 pieces of information are exactly the same, then SafeSport will load your updated certificate directly into U.S. Soccer Connect. As a back up, please download your completed certificate and have on hand just in case. 

Once you have signed up in our club system as a volunteer you will receive a confirmation email providing you with all the login information and steps that need to be taken. If for some reason you do not receive this email or you have difficulty with the new system please contact the office at 541-672-5089 or by emailing [email protected]
