Frequently Asked Questions


How are the teams formed in the recreation soccer league?

- Per the MSC rules, teams at all divisions are randomly selected.  However, teammate and coach requests are an option during the registration process with efforts to honor them, unfortunately, sometimes they simply can't be accommodated.  The primary goal is to balance teams to promote fair, competitive and fun play.

I've never played soccer, can I still volunteer as a head or assistant coach?  
- Absolutely!  With enrollment between 300-450 players, we always need volunteers.  Coaching at this level is a light lift.  Youtube provides an abundance of training material, and if needed, members of the club will gladly assist with training plans and concepts.  Very simply put, those with a positive attitudes who enjoy engaging with our youth athletes will very easily find the rewards worth the effort.  

How much time do I need to commit if selected as a head or assistant coach?
- Each team typically plays 1 match a week and our U8's and up are encouraged to hold 1 training session a week between 60-90 minutes.  

When are practices/training held?
- Since our volunteer coaches typically have full-time careers, the training nights and times are at the discretion of the volunteer coach.  Although many coaches do their best to iron out scheduling conflicts with players, the end result is sometimes this is difficult and the final decision falls on the coach.  Some coaches at U12 and older hold two weeknight training sessions.
