Attending orientation is highly encouraged if at all possible for soccer families and their players. This is the meeting where the kids get to meet their teammates and choose their teams name. This is also the meeting where parent volunteers choose their roles to support the team, things like coach, assistant coach, team parent, referee and field helpers. Meetings will take place at the Lebanon Senior Center (80 Tangent St, Lebanon, OR 97355) based upon your players age:
12U & 15U Boys and Girls
10U Boys and Girls
8U Boys and Girls
5U & 6U Boys and Girls
Attending coach training is useful, even if you have coached soccer before. Principles of the AYSO philosophy will be discussed, as well as development of drills and practices appropriate for the age group you will be coaching. Times for training are based upon the age group you will be coaching:
10U & 12U
5U, 6U & 8U
5U, 6U & 8U
If you have an interest in becoming a referee, you will need to attend a basic training session. If you like exercise, are energetic, enjoy being part of the game and like helping children learn you will probably like being a referee. At present, we are in need of referees in order to run all of the games held on a given Saturday. Youth 12 and up are also welcome to train as referees. For safety reasons, we cannot allow games to be played if we don't have a referee to cover the games for 8U and up. If no on from your team volunteers as a referee and completes training, you child's game could be canceled.
Field Building in Halsey
Field building is where we measure, mark and paint the game fields for the kids. If you just want to help but feel intimidated by the "bigger" jobs, field building and weekly field painting are the easiest way to contribute. The building part is a little more involved, but once the fields are built, 30 minutes or less once a week with the paint cart will usually serve to touch up the lines on a field for game day. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help.
