Volunteer Coaches Needed!

The foundation of our Youth Soccer Program is our Volunteer Coaches. Coaching is an experience that will make a positive and fun difference in the players’ lives and your own.

We offer free ASEP coaching courses for interested volunteers. To find out more, please see the Volunteer Coaching flyer at champaignparks.com/coaching.

The flyer describes coaching timelines, recommended experience, and league information.
Then, fill out a Volunteer Application and turn it in. We would not be able to run our soccer program without volunteer coaches!
