Mandatory Coaching Requirements

No adult is permitted to coach, assist or help out with NSC players, teams or programs in any capacity without first completing all adult registration requirements below AND being in possession of an MA Youth Soccer credentials lanyard for the CURRENT Fall-Spring ‘soccer year’ (e.g Fall 2021 – Spring 2022)

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
