How to become a coach

OFA is determined to find the most qualified coaches available to ensure the highest quality training environment for the youth in our community. OFA understands the importance of finding the right coaches to guide our young players.

Coaching any youth sports team is both a privilege and an honor. It requires a special individual who understands the game enough to teach players how to technically play the sport in order to be successful and effective. More importantly, coaching requires having the best interest of the players. Although winning is a primary objective, teaching players skills and technique as well as valuable life lessons such as sportsmanship and character are paramount.

  1. Support in preparing practice itineraries & organizing team communication
  2. A piece of OFA gear each season
  3. Team training gear/equipment, to include cones, soccer balls, etc.
