Welcome to the Coaches Corner!

We have created this section on our website to provide coaches with information and resources to help them in the training, knowledge of the game, and general soccer knowledge.  We hope you find this useful.  

Please send any comments or suggestions to Jeff Tener at  jtener@aol.com.

There is so much great talent and experience within the Hulmeville Soccer Club; we encourage you to talk to your fellow coaches, parents and Board of Directors to share ideas and success stories.   

Take a few minutes after your next practice to watch another teams practice for ideas.
On any given day we also have our travel teams practicing. 

At the top there are a series of links to other sites.  Please take time, explore them.  There is a lot of great information to be found for both new and experienced coaches.

Field Maintenance

We've had many question in regard to field maintenance.  It's up to you to maintain the lines on the field(s).  Since it is a task that takes more time from you, we have spread that role out across all teams that share the field.  There are painters, paint and measuring tape located in the Knack boxes spread across the field.  The boxes are locked during the week to prevent theft and vandalism, however you are more than welcome to write to info@hulmevillesoccer.org and ask a BoD member to meet you at the field during any day of the week.  Please give us fair notice and let us know before hand.  "Can you meet me on the field tomorrow after 5:00 pm" is fine.

Coaching Licenses

For Recreational or In-House coaches, licences are optional.  There are 6 tiers of licenses F through A.   They get more expensive as they go up but also allow you to do more with it.  The entry level license is a 2 hour online course and is highly recommended, but optional, for anyone considering or actively coaching.
