Danville Soccer Association coaches are parents and community volunteers who make it possible for the kids to play and learn soccer.

       Most of the coaches in the organization have no personal soccer background, and have learned their soccer from others in the soccer community, their kids, books and videos, and by paying attention to games that they have seen. In other words, you have all the background and qualifications needed to start your coaching career.

     The "links" section of the DSA Website has many great sources of coaching information to apply directly to day-to-day youth coaching. Happily soccer is a simple game (especially at the younger ages) and it is easy for the youth coach, with a little innovation and preparation, to stay ahead of the kids.

      Coaches in the youth recreational leagues usually have a couple of practices per week, and coach the weekly game on Saturday. Traveling coaches come from the same pool of people, but are often those who have coached recreational soccer for a while, or who have played the game themselves. There are coaching licensing clinics available sometimes through Central Illinois Youth Soccer League www.ciysl.com, and DSA has less formal training sessions as needed before the season starts.

     Practices are in the local community, a park, a playground, at any other suitable site, or at the complex. Games are at the Danville Area Soccer Complex on Winter Avenue.DSA always needs volunteer coaches to keep the program going. Coaches are picked annually at the team assignment time in late July or early August. Anyone with an interest should contact a board member at the time that kids register, or indicate on the child's registration form.
