Volunteer Coaching

become a volunteer coach! 

A good coach can change a game. A great coach can change a life.
— John Wooden

Our volunteer coaches are the backbone of PCFC. We want anyone who has a passion for soccer and a passion for inspiring young players. You don't need to have extensive knowledge of the game or coaching.  It is important to our mission of offering high quality soccer that our coaches do have some experience playing. We offer training via an online National Coaching License and then the opportunity to advance into higher licensing levels. Our Director of Coaching provides on the field support during practices to help you learn  how to improve your coaching technique.
