Hello Parents,

We hope to post available spaces by Monday August 31.
We are getting hundreds of emails, therefore, please be patient and we will get back to your emails.

Request for Volunteer Coaches

The Optimist Club of Naples is a 100% volunteer organization. Our recreation soccer program is comprised of parent/family and community volunteers as Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches.  We rely on our volunteers to maintain a strong recreation program and cannot operate without them.  Coaching a team with the Optimist Club of Naples is often a very rewarding position where you can make a difference in not only your child's life, but the life of other children in your community!  Please contact info@optimistsoccer.org and say you'll coach or help coach a team for the 2015 Fall Season!

You don't have to be a former National Team player to be a great coach, in fact we give you all the information you'll need to run an effective practice. You just need to make the practice sessions fun. Coaches even get to select their practice night.

Please consider volunteering, we couldn't do it without our parent/family and community volunteers!

Important dates: 

  • September 22  Coaches meeting at Vineyards Community Center (6:30pm – 8pm) 

  • September 24 – 26  Coaches contact players

  • September 28 – October 2  Practices begin

Heads up Concussion

HEADS UP Concussion in Youth Sports is a free, online course available to coaches, parents, and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion. It features interviews with leading experts, dynamic graphics and interactive exercises, and compelling storytelling to help you recognize a concussion and know how to respond if you think that your athlete might have a concussion.

Once you complete the training and quiz, you can print out a certificate, making it easy to show your league or school you are ready for the season. Click on the picture to start the class.

EPL Fantasy Soccer Game

Coaches/Parents/Players…

Every year over 3 million people around the world play the official fantasy game of the English Premier League. It is a lot of fun for anyone with any interest in the English Premier League and this year we have set up a league for Optimist soccer program participants.

Highlights:

  • You set up and manage a team with a budget.
  • You can buy any player in the Premier League subject to your budget but no more than 3 players from any one team.
  • You can change your team selection each game week (you will have four substitutes) and can trade one player per game week without penalty.
  • You can sign up and read all of the rules to the game at http://fantasy.premierleague.com/.

How much you play is up to you … daily, weekly, monthly depends on how much fun you can handle … Kids often do better than adults but anyone who has an eye on the English Premier League will really enjoy this. Our league is called SWFL Soccer. The private league code is 44776-333378 which you will need to join the league. Send us an email if you have a question at shaun@bbgi.com.

Have fun!
