   Maccabi SC: Become a Coach

Calling all Coaches

Would you like to make a positive impact which will enhance, not only your child’s sporting experience, but the rest of our community’s valued youth as well? JCC Chai Sports is looking for coaches for all of our leagues and programs. Whether a Parent Volunteer or a Rep coach, each coach has a tremendous impact on the experience of each team and player. The success of most programs are a direct result of dedicated, exuberant and positive coaches.

This year, we are going to be offering some special incentives for all volunteer house league and introductory coaches (non-hockey). Below you will see detailed information on our model, your role and the many exciting benefits you will get as a JCC Chai Sports Coach.

House League Coaches

We believe that we offer an advantage and a bonus from other leagues/programs, with the use of our Technical Instructors or Conveners. We feel, that although players are only meant to learn the basics of soccer development in a house league setting, they are best doing so through trained, certified and experienced individuals.Or coaches have the advantage of being able to work in unison with a fully trained staff member should they require any assistance at the field.

Even with these instructors overseeing the programs or in some cases running the drills in practice, the role of a Parent Coach is integral to the success of these programs.Programs and leagues cannot run without the guidance of a dedicated Parent coach.Teams that have a committed coach, are well run, organized and are usually having a lot of fun. This season, it is mandatory for every team to have a Parent Head Coach and Assistant Coach.

Below you will find many of the differences between the role of a parent coach and an instructor/convener, and some of the incentives our coaches will get during the season:
