Herndon Youth Soccer could not exist without the hundreds of volunteer coaches and assistant coaches. Coaching is a rewarding experience that keeps many of us coming back year after year, season after season and child after child. Many coaches have never played soccer before and have never coached before so do not let either of those things stop you from volunteering to coach or assistant coach.
HYS offers many coaching clinics and licensing courses, all free of charge, to all of our coaches and well as numerous opportunities for team training. The HYS training program is under the direction of Roy Soule, HYS Technical Director, who conducts numerous clinics and offers support to help new and experienced coaches continue to learn and improve.
There are also a variety of books and training aids available at local libraries, soccer/sports stores and on the Internet. Check our Links Page for links to online coaching sites. If you are interested in coaching please make sure to indicate this on your child’s registration form each season or you can contact us at [email protected] for more information and to let us know your interest in coaching. You do not need to have a child playing soccer to be a coach.
