WE NEED VOLUNTEERS!

In addition to the pleasure of being a part of your child's soccer season, the Markham Soccer Club is grateful for the necessary support we receive from our volunteer convenors and coaches.

COACHES NEEDED 

You don't need to be an ex-professional soccer player to coach house league soccer. This rewarding position requires nothing but enthusiasm.  The Club provides all the equipment you need and our Club Head Coach supplies a detailed coaching manual to ensure that your practices are rewarding and fun. Each team head coach receives a $50 registration credit at the end of the season. The Club supplies a cool coaching shirt for all house league team coaches.

We will have a House League Technical Director who will be out at the fields and who will offer assistance with practice, suggestions, game day strategies and any other questions you may have.  Our goal is to provide exceptional support to our coaches.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?  
Just fill out the Volunteer Application Form (found in the Volunteer Section under the HOME tab on the website) or send an email to Michelle Self or select the appropriate box when you are registering your child online.
