Managers, Coaches & Volunteers


NSC could not run without dedicated volunteers of all types. Parents are needed to help coach, manage teams (paperwork, phone calls, etc.), and to organize and staff tournaments.

·         More information about coaching and tournaments is provided in other sections of our website.

·         Parents interested in volunteering should fill out the online volunteer/coaching application online.   Go to www.needhamsoccer.com and click on the link in the center of the home page that says “Click Here to register Coaches, Assistants, Team Managers, Tournament Volunteers”

·         Select the division (age and gender) that you wish to volunteer for and complete all the required fields.  If you wish to volunteer for multiple ages and genders, then indicate that in the comments section.

·         If you wish to be considered to coach a travel team, your online coach registration and updated coach profile must be completed BEFORE May 15th

We actively solicit our parents to act as coaches and assistant coaches. The state requires all adult volunteers (board members, coaches and assistant coaches) to undergo a CORI (Criminal background) check.

  • No volunteer is allowed on the field for games or practices without a completed CORI. 
  • CORI checks are NOT required annually.  If you have completed a CORI check since June 1, 2006 you do not need to complete the form again unless the Mass Youth Soccer office requests it. 
  • The online CORI check is done through the state soccer office at www.mayouthsoccer.org  (Mass Youth Soccer).
