Coaches can benefit from solid teaching and leadership skills; however the ability to effectively interact and guide the players is more important than soccer knowledge and experience. PSC provides ongoing training and support to coaches to help with the technical aspects of soccer. Coaches need to be good communicators, well-organized, committed to the job, willing to learn and dedicated to following and upholding club policies and regulations.

HEAD COACH AND ASSISTANT COACH ROLES
Each team generally has 2 coaches, a head coach and an assistant coach. The head coach is the main contact with PSC Administration. The assistant coach supports the head coach at practices and games throughout the season and fills in for the coach as necessary. Both coaches lead their teams in practices, drills and games to teach the basics of soccer and enjoyment of the beautiful game. Both coaches support positive coaching values, provide the opportunity for skill improvement for players of varied ability on their team, and encourage good sportsmanship.
