Recreational Team Coaches


Double goal coach presentation

All coaches REC and comp are strongly encouraged to attend the Double Goal Coach presentation by the Positive Coaching Alliance

The club depends on parents and other adults to volunteer as coaches.  To volunteer as a coach, assistant coach, team parent, or board member, check a volunteer box on the registration form, or contact the Recreational Coach Coordinator if you are interested.  Coaches get $50 off the next season for their child's registration.

Each year all SCCYSC Coaches and Assistant Coaches must complete the Cal North Risk Management Registration Risk Assessment. Please read the 2017 Livescan Fingerprinting and Risk Assessment Instructions.  New Coaches are required to print out the Livescan form and bring it with a picture ID to Santa Cruz Livescan.   Note: if you were fingerprinted by our league in 2014 or 2015, you only need to log in and complete the Risk Assessment Form.

Santa Cruz City YSC offers coaching clinics for all new and returning coaches during the Fall season.
