EWG COACHES

Volunteer coaches are the backbone of youth sports in America. Without the thousands of parents signing up to coach youth sports every season, the youth sports world would come to a screeching halt! 

“Children will follow the example of adult role models, positively or negatively. Children will copy or imitate sports behaviors witnessed, including the development of values based on that behavior. Adults must be a positive role model exhibiting sportsmanlike behavior at games, practices, and at all times while giving positive reinforcement to the children and supporting their coaches, staff and other volunteers.”

Coaches! We would like to recognize players from week to week.  It could be a child's first goal or perhaps a multi-goal game or a great play or simply some excellent effort during a game or practice.  In short, we want to get the kids excited about the possibility of being recognized and encourage everyone to read each publication or visit the website.  So, if you have someone you'd like to recognize, please send a brief synopsis of the player you'd like recognized and the reason why and we'll add it here.  Thanks! Send emails to VicePresident@EWGSoccer.org Click HERE to see current and past stars!

coach info /FAQ:

Q:I WOULD LIKE TO COACH MY CHILD’S TEAM.  HOW DO I MAKE SURE THAT I WILL BE COACHING MY CHILD?A: Anyone who would like to coach needs to register with EWGYSA by clicking the blue “COACHES” button There is no cost to register. You must also pass a background check which is a simple check off box during your registration.  Also, you can leave a comment when registering, indicating you would like to coach your child. We usually assume this but sometimes with siblings, we are unsure which child/age group you would like to coach.
