All-New Soccer For Success
Program Launching This Fall
Coaches, be a part of Washington Youth Soccer’s newest
community outreach and youth development program!
Washington Youth Soccer’s all-new Soccer for Success program is ready to hit the ground running — now, we need your help!
Washington Youth Soccer is seeking individuals with a passion for youth development in the sport of soccer to serve as head and assistant coaches in the all-new Soccer for Success program, an after-school, sports-based youth development program that uses soccer as a tool to combat childhood obesity and provides nutrition education and mentorship to children in at-risk communities.
Five months after receiving a prestigious U.S. Soccer Foundation Social Innovation Fund Sub-Grant to help initiate the program, Washington Youth Soccer has partnered with Communities in Schools Auburn, the Auburn School District, Community Schools Collaboration, the Tukwila School District and the Highline School District to launch Soccer for Success programs in 19 local elementary schools, including Washington Elementary School, Terminal Park Elementary School, Gildo Rey Elementary School and Dick Scobee Elementary School in Auburn, and Madrona Elementary School, Bow Lake Elementary School, Thorndyke Elementary School, Cascade View Elementary School and White Center Heights Elementary School in the Tukwila/Highline area.
In order to kickoff each of these exciting programs, Washington Youth Soccer is looking to hire head coaches and assistant coaches to go into each school and conduct two-hour sessions, three times per week, over a period of two 12-week seasons (fall and spring). Coaches will be paid for their time, with head coaches receiving $50 for each two-hour session, and assistant coaches $30 for each two-hour session.
No coaching licenses are required, though it is preferred that individuals applying for head coach positions have a least a State “E” Certificate. Training for all coaches will be conducted Aug. 25 in Federal Way, and programs are scheduled to begin this fall.
