In-Town Intramural Coaches - Season Preparation and Administrative Items

First and foremost - THANK YOU for coaching.  Without you we would not have a program.

The Newton Youth Soccer INTRAMURAL program depends on volunteer coaches in order to be able to run its program. Therefore, we thank all of you for offering to coach this season. As you prepare for the upcoming season, here are a few things to be thinking about:

1) Be sure to reach out via email and with a phone call to all the families on your roster prior to the season.  Please provide a copy of your roster to all parents as well as a game schedule

2) Be sure that you have updated your personal information with Mass Youth Soccer for the CORI process. In order to do this, please contact your Age Group Coordinator, or the Newton Youth Soccer registrar, Deborah Avant. 

3) Team Meeting -- Prior to the first game of the season, NYS encourages all coaches to hold a parent/player meeting to discuss expectations for the upcoming season. For a sample of topics to be discussed, please go here

4) Equipment needs -- For the upcoming season, all teams should have the following list of equipment: Uniforms (shirts. socks, shorts), disc cones,  & ice packs. If you need any of this equipment, please contact your Age Group Coordinator

5) Information about concussions -- Given the increasing incidence of concussions in youth sports, including soccer, Massachusetts Youth Soccer has provided all coaches with important information about concussions in young athletes. Please be sure to go here for more information.


Coaching Courses
