Scottsdale Soccer Recreational Program’s Volunteer Coaching:
Volunteer coaches indicate their interest in coaching during their child’s player registration - look for the "Volunteer Question" during registration. If you become interested in coaching a team after your child registers, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request or for additional information.
The Scottsdale Soccer Recreational Program will collect all coach’s names and form teams based on the coaches who have volunteered. Coaches cannot request players but players, during registration, can request a coach. A coach’s child is automatically assigned to the coach’s team. Teams are formed based on zip-code and/or school attended in order to create neighborhood teams where possible. Our Pre-season Coach Meetings are held in early September where team rosters are handed out. Coaches contact their players around the second week of September and begin practice at that time.
League Rules - Modified for Age Specific Use.
The Scottsdale Soccer Recreational Program uses modified rules to adapt the game of soccer to our specific age groups. For the modified rules for 4 - 5 year old divisions, click here. For the modified rules for 6 year old and older divisions, click here.
