Steamboat Springs Youth Soccer Association

Spring Grassroots Recreational Soccer For 5-8 year olds!

Thank you to all of our parent and student volunteers who coach our rec teams! This program could not exist without your help, and we appreciate all of the time and energy you commit to coaching.

We will be providing a coaches training session at the beginning of the season on Sunday, May 3, at the Heritage fields to go over tips for structuring your practices, as well as ideas for games and activities. If you do not have any soccer playing experience, don't worry! At this age, it is most important for players to get comfortable with a ball at their feet, and have fun!

If you are interested in being a co-coach for our Spring 2020 season, please contact our office at 970-870-1520. At the end of the season, we reimburse registration fees for one coach per team (if your team has two coaches, we can provide half reimbursement for each coach).
