Request for Coaches - Spring 2017 Season

 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 Spring 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!

To sign up as a coach please fill the online form.
