Villages Soccer and our Volunteer Coaches
Our program would not be what it is today without the dedicated support of our trainers and volunteers! Opportunities are available to help out during practices and games. If you're interested in participating, contact us via email for more information.
Many thanks to all of those involved!
Support the sport!!!
Parents and Spectators
If you want your child to be happy and go as far as possible in this sport, how can you as a parent or guardian help them to achieve that goal?
What is your role? Be your child's biggest fan! Be supportive! Help your child keep the sport in perspective. And, above all else, remember that it's supposed to be fun!
When you allow your child to have ownership of practices and games while maintaining balance between school and soccer, they will remain healthy and happy athletes....and of course, have the best chance to perform to their potential!
