Our Recreational Program is coached entirely by parent and community volunteers. Please join in on the fun! We rely on our 200+ volunteer coaches to help ensure manageable team sizes and maximum play time for our kids. Volunteers can sign up individually (we will pair you with a co-coach if you would like) or you can sign up and indicate your preferred co-coach or assistant coach. We offer:
- a weekly coaching curriculum
- a preseason coaching seminar (no experience necessary!) run by our Director of Coaching
- a Georgia State Soccer Association run clinic at least once each year
- a season clinic run by our Director of Coaching - Recreation to cover fundamentals
- a volunteer discount
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer coach please review the following requirements:
- It is mandatory that all Rec Coaches pass a background check through Ga Soccer.
- You must be able to coach 10 weekly 1-hour practice sessions for 5U-8U and two weekly 1.5 hour sessions for 10U and up.
- You must be available to coach games on Saturdays and some Sunday games for 12U and up teams.
- Coordinate team communications or designate a Team Parent to handle game reminders and other email updates in a timely manner.
- Communicate any issues right away to your Age Group Coordinator and Director of Coaching - Rec, Amy Feigl.
- Follow Inter Atlanta Code of Conduct and Behavior Policy at all times.
For all questions about practice days, times, locations and game day info, please refer to the detailed age group descriptions under the Rec Dates, Fees, and Faqs tab!
