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 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!

TOPSSOCCER

US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities, organized by youth soccer association volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, ages 5-17.  Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes to become valued and successful members of the US YOUTH SOCCER family.

Optimist Club of Naples in conjunction with Azzurri Storm is excited to support this program. for more information, please contact Joseph Duffy at:  772-559-4690


Why do we need a TOPSoccer Program?
TOPSOCCER was formed to perpetuate the US YOUTH SOCCER mission statement which is, in part, "to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America's youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition." There are thousands of children with disabilities who need, and can be provided with, the opportunity to play soccer through the TOPSoccer program.
