You do not need any special qualifications or experience to coach a recreational team. Gold Country Soccer holds a coaching clinic before the season begins, typically at the end of July. The coaching clinic will teach you how to coach a youth soccer team, offer suggestions for practice drills, and suggest techniques that you may use for your own practices. We also offer head coach discounts.
