Fall 2020 Coach Registration: OPEN
Travel Team Coach Applicant Registration Deadline: June 15th
Thank you for your interest in coaching or volunteering with Needham Soccer Club. All our teams are volunteer coached and we are always in need of enthusiastic Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches and volunteers.
No prior soccer experience is necessary, just enthusiasm, and completion of mandatory registration requirements.
Head coaches must be 18+ but we do offer volunteer opportunities for 7th Grade+ through our TOPSoccer and Mentor programs – Click here for more info
ALL adult coaches/volunteers (18+) are required to be registered with the club AND be in compliance with Safesport requirements: Head Coaches, assistants, or other ‘helpers’ MUST be registered BEFORE they can work with NSC players.
GotSport is our club registration platform and is used for all club registrations and roster building/management. All coaches and assistant coaches must be registered on this platform in order to be assigned to and communicate with their team. Coaches are required to register separately for each individual Fall and Spring season.
As of Fall 2020, all our registrations will transition to the new and improved GotSport platform. Previous accounts will not work on the new platform, and all registrants will need to create a new account. The new account should then be used for all future registrations.
In 2017, congress passed the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act. As a result, US Soccer (and MA Youth Soccer) revised the requirements for all adults volunteers interacting with young athletes.
NSC coaches, volunteers, board members and staff are all required to meet these requirements.
Safesport comprises of 4 components:
– CORI Check
– National Background Check – includes State and National Sex Offender searches
– Abuse Prevention Training
– Concussion Training
Compliance is monitored and administered via the MA Youth Soccer Connect platform, separate from your GotSport registration
