Interested in Coaching?

***In accordance with the provisions of New Mexico's Emergency Public Health Order, teams are limited to a ten player to one coach ratio during our fall 2020 modified covid-safe skills-n-drills program.  All coaches who volunteer for this program will have their child's registration fee fully waived up front (limit one free season per team coached), and will receive a free jersey/t-shirt to match their players.  Skills-n-drills coaches are able to choose their own location and schedule for their sessions, at any city park, with both weekday evenings and weekend days being options.  No experience is necessary to be a skills-n-drills coach, as detailed covid-safe session planning ideas and ongoing support will be provided.  And as always, for the safety of our players and volunteers, a basic background check is required for coach approval.  Please contact us directly with any questions.  Thank you!***

*The following is for reference only, as it applies to our standard game seasons:

Each Zia Youth Soccer League team is led by a volunteer Head Coach, who works with and is supported by a volunteer Assistant Coach.  No experience is required to volunteer as a coach, as full training and ongoing support are provided.  All that is needed is the true desire to help kids learn the game of soccer, build confidence and sportsmanship, and have a fun and exciting time doing so!  

Head coaches are generally able to choose their team's practice location and schedule (weekday afternoon(s) or evening(s) only, no weekend practices are allowed).  Coaches must be available for a single game each Saturday during the active game season, which will take place at either Altura Park or Prado del Sol Park between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.  An exact game schedule will be provided to all registered players approximately two weeks prior to the first game of the season.  

Head Coaches receive the benefit of one registration discount/rebate per team he or she coaches.  This essentially provides our head coaches with one or more FREE registrations, as a 50% discount is applied at the time of registration (certain restrictions apply*), with the remaining 50% provided in the form of a rebate check after participating in the seasonal coach training.  Head coaches also receive a FREE coach jersey to match their players!  All of this is of course in addition to the highly rewarding experience itself, knowing that you made a difference in the lives of the young players on your team!  

For more information on volunteering as a head or assistant coach, and to receive your head coach discount code to apply at registration, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected]  

*For the protection of both our players and coaches, all volunteer coaches must submit to a basic background check.  All coaches are subject to approval and coaching positions are subject to availability.  Coaches must receive full administrative approval prior to issuance of the discount code, which will be provided upon the coach's e-mailed acceptance of the offered position.  Returning coaches must be in good standing with the league in accordance with the Coach's Code of Conduct in order to maintain seasonal approval.
