PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Waterloo United presents an outdoor recreational program led by volunteer coaches and following a curriculum developed by professional staff and approved by Canada Soccer. Our approach incorporates research-approved strategies to help keep kids engaged, having fun and learning some skills through implicit learning.

The Recreational soccer program consists of both 11 v 11 games as well as practices and is designed to develop your player’s soccer technique, communication, and teamwork skills, to name a few. This program operates with the assistance of volunteer coaches. Experience is not required as much as a desire to assist in making the soccer experience for your child the best memories of their youth.


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

WMSC relies on the generosity of volunteer coaches for our Recreational House League soccer programs. Volunteering is a terrific way to get involved in soccer, while at the same time supporting your club and your community.

If your child is registered in the House League Program, consider becoming the coach for their team! Our volunteer coaches do not need to have any formal soccer or coaching experience to be a part of the team. All that is needed is positivity, enthusiasm and a supportive attitude! Our volunteer coaches are assigned one team, and every week during the games, that individual helps get the team ready for their game with a quick warmup and provides guidance and support during the game. Match officials are provided for all games.

Coaches, if you are not the primary account holder in the Power Up registration system,  you are required to have an individual account with a unique email address. Once you have created your profile you can volunteer with the club by clicking the VOLUNTEER NOW-> Team Official Application  in the main menu. Returning coaches – please use your current coaching profile.
