The schedule should allow enough time to complete each photo session and to prepare for each game if we keep to the schedule. Therefore, if you are planning on purchasing a photo package please prepare your form before you arrive or allow an extra 15 minutes to complete the form and make your payment before your photo session. If you do not intend to purchase a photo package please plan to have your player there to complete the team for their teammates and the team sponsor.
 
                    

Fall 2017 Season - Request for Coaches

The Optimist Club of Naples – Soccer Program is a 100% volunteer organization. Our recreation 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 upcoming Fall 2017 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.  Coaches even get to select their practice night.

Please consider volunteering, we couldn't do it without our volunteer parents!
