High School Student Assistant Coaches
Updated: Feb 24
North Andover High School Soccer Players,
As we get ready for the spring 2020 season, we hope you will register to be an assistant coach in NASA's GK program. Amazingly, this will be our 10th season having high school players as assistant coaches and, because of the success of the last 9-seasons with all our high school volunteers, have made our NASA program stronger. The players in the GK program love having high school players as coaches, the parent coaches love having the high school players teach proper soccer skills, and the high school players love coaching. It's a perfect combination and the reason we see the number of high school coaches grow each season.
Being an assistant coach has many benefits:
· It's a great way to give back to the community that supported you.
· You can directly impact and encourage the next wave of NASA soccer players.
· Volunteering will look great on those college applications.
· For those who need to acquire volunteer hours for various reasons, coaching GK soccer checks that box for you.
The greatest benefit of all is the reaction you will get from your players! Just think back when you were playing GK soccer and what it would have meant to have a high school soccer player as one of your coaches. Your players will hang on every word you say and will want to impress you with the soccer skills that you teach them.
Commitment as a GK assistant coach entails:
· GK soccer is Saturdays for 1-hour. No mid-week practices.
· You will be paired with at least 2 adult coaches.
· The season is 8 weeks from April 11 - June 6 (No game Memorial Day Weekend)
· You will work with the same team on the same field at North Andover Middle School the entire season.
· When registering, you can choose between 8:30 games or 10:00 games. No preference? You can choose "either".

I hope you will consider signing up as coaches for this upcoming spring season. I promise it will be better than you can imagine! Just ask some of the players who have coached in past seasons.
