Spring 2019 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 Spring 2019 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.
