Steamboat Springs Youth Soccer Association

Steamboat Soccer Club - Teen Coaching Program

Steamboat Soccer Club offers a Teen Coach Program. The program allows mature teens to further develop leadership qualities through coaching our Spring and Fall Recreational teams. With training and oversight from Paige Lasley, SSC's Grass Roots Director, teens can complete their community service/volunteer hours and enhance their college applications plus build job skills. Make a difference and become a leader in our community!

The program is designed for High School age students. Teen Coaches work in tandem (2) per team or with a parent volunteer.
