Coaches - Please do your best to make the games FUN for the players. If your team is dominating the game by more than 4 goals, possibly try some other strategies to make the game more enjoyable for both sides!

 Coach Resources

Below we've posted some helpful links that can hopefully assist you in your role as a KYSC volunteer coach. You have taken the first step in becoming an important figure in making a difference in a child's life; helping them to learn the game of soccer, having fun, and playing with good sportsmanship!

Want to learn more about the specifics of an "Offside" call? Then click here to see a great pictorial description. (The offside rule is mainly enforced in the U11 and higher division games, however, it is also expected that at the U10 level, players start to become familiar with it.)
