The success of the Chatham United Recreation Soccer program depends on our parent volunteers. Please consider volunteering to help with your child's soccer team. You do not need soccer experience and we will support you every step of the way:
Weekday sessions are run by professional trainers from United Soccer Academy so there is no need for you to be available on weekdays
Professional trainers are available during weekend games to assist you
USA will hold a parent training session at the beginning of the season
We will provide worksheets via the web with activities for you to run with the children prior to the Saturday games
We are looking for the following volunteers:
Head Coach - responsible for communication with team parents, handing out uniforms, running games on Saturday
Assistant Coach - responsible for assisting the Head Coach with games on Saturday
All Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches must take the Rutgers Safety Training Course. For more details and to register click here.
If you would like to volunteer you can indicate your interest when registering your child.
Please note that we cannot add you as a coach until Chatham Recreation provides clearance on your background status to us. It is your responsibility to follow up with Chatham Recreation if your background check has not returned. We must form teams based on coaches that are cleared. If you are not yet cleared we can add you once your background clearance comes through, however we only do so until approximately 3 weeks into the season. After three weeks we submit our final player and coach list to our insurance provider and we can no longer add players or coaches to the program.
