Embrace the chaos. It's a GREAT thing!

As we get ready for the spring 2022 season, we hope you will consider registering to be an assistant coach in NASA's GK program. This will be our 14th season having high school players as assistant coaches and, because of the success of the last 13-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 foot 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 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 to when you were playing GK soccer and what it would have meant to have a high school player as one of your coaches. Your players will hang on to 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 1 adult coach.

  • The season is 8 weeks and is projected to start April 16th and end June 11th (No game on May 28th),

  • Games are at Sharpeners Pond Field and the entire season and teams will rotate between the 8:30, 10:15, and 12:00 time slots. 

  • When registering, you can choose a specific time slot for the season in which case, you will be assigned to a field number or, you can choose to be assigned to a team in which case, you will rotate time slots with your team.

We hope you will consider signing up as coaches 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. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you,

Scott D'Entremont
