Coaches Responsibilities

Help us serve your kids and make a difference in your community! Volunteers are an essential part of DSL and we need your help to make our season a success by volunteering as a Coach. We are looking for you to bring organization, enthusiasm, balance, and a sense of fun. We will help you every step of the way, and no prior or formal soccer coaching skills are required.

As a recreational league we emphasis skills development, equal playing time, sportsmanship, and having fun.

The expected time commitment is approximately 2-3 hours per week, with an hour’s practice held during the week in the late afternoon / early evening depending on age, with a game over the weekend. Note some games may occasionally be on a weekday evening. Please check the expected practice and game times on the website.
