Want to become a youth trainer?

The LDSC trainer program is looking for older soccer players who would be interested in working with younger players, gaining valuable job experience, and giving back to their community.  The trainers work with U4 and U6 players to help teach them basic soccer.  To qualify, your child must be 12 or older, have knowledge of the sport, enjoy working with young children, and be willing and able to work on some Saturday mornings and some Tuesday evenings.

To become a trainer, each youth trainer must complete the certification process.  At this certification, there will be a brief parent meeting that one parent/guardian of each new trainer must attend. There will then be three, two hour sessions to satisfy certification for new trainers following this quick meeting.  After these certification sessions, new trainers will be scheduled to work on some Saturdays and some Tuesdays.

The next certification will be 9/6, 9/20, 9/27, 10/4.  Trainers must attend three of the four sessions.  If your child would like to attend the certification sessions, please fill out the google form here and you will be contacted with more information.
