DO I HAVE TO HAVE EXPERIENCE TO COACH?

Table Rock SC provides training and support for our coaches. You do not have to have soccer experience but you do need to work well with children and be willing to learn. The most important consideration is if a person cares about the kids enough to do their very best and complete the required training.  It is recommended that all Coaches have a minimum of their F Coaching license, which can be acquired on-line for just $25.  This fee will be reimbursed by Table Rock SC upon proof of completion.  Click here to start the 2-3 hour course now!  https://dcc.ussoccer.com/
