Soccer Coach Interest Form – 2023-2024 Season

Woodland Soccer Club is always looking for new and experienced soccer coaches to lead one or more of our U8 to U19 competitive youth soccer teams. You do not have to have a background in playing the sport or significant coaching experience, rather a desire to learn and a coaching temperament. While already having a US Soccer coaching license is preferred, WSC will help you attain your US Soccer grassroots license and beyond.  Strong leadership and communication skills are however necessary and essential in motivating our players and helping them become better soccer players and community members.
