Recreational Volunteer Coaches
Brams United Girls Soccer Club appreciates the efforts put forward by all our Volunteer Coaches. In the 2016-17 Indoor season, we introduced an Incentive program for our Head Recreational & Rep volunteer coaches. There are criteria to be met in order to qualify and the club will work with every coach to assist in meeting the expectations.
If you are interested in volunteering for the Brams United Girls Soccer Club as a Recreational Coach you must:
- Register on Power Up as a Volunteer by going to bramsunited.ca and clicking on Register.
- Complete the Respect in Sport Certificate (Mandatory if Coaching Players U13 – U18)
- The club will reimburse coaches that complete the Respect in Sport Course
- Once course is completed submit the certificate and proof of payment to the club
- Cheque or direct deposit will be processed within 20 days of receipt
- Complete a Vulnerable Sector Screening form.
- This is required for all coaches 18 years and older.
- Vulnerable Sector Screenings forms are available for pick up at the Brams United office and are valid for two years
- Completed Vulnerable Sector reports are to be returned to the Brams Untied Office
Coaches must be at least 15 years of age. Any coach under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian at all times and must be registered on Power up as a volunteer.
Coaches automatically receive their child on their team (if the coach does not have a child they can select another player). If the coach has an assistant coach, their child will be on the same team.
No formal soccer or coaching experience is necessary to volunteer to coach House League. The Brams United Girls Soccer club does ask for team participation, positive communication, skill development and fair play from all coaches.
