Mukilteo Youth Soccer Club (Mukilteo FC) strives to attract the best volunteer head coaches. Most of our head coaches are parents of players in the Club, have kids who have graduated from the MYSC program or have been assistant coaches. Our coaches take great pride in working with players to help develop their soccer skills, life skills, and love of the game.
Each prospective coach goes through an interview process. We look for the following:
- Prior youth soccer coaching experience
- Professional coaching licenses or the willingness to attain these and attend coach training sessions
- A good reputation and references will benefit Mukilteo FC
- A clear ability to guide, teach and motivate youth players
- Good communication skills to interact effectively with parents and others
- Schedule flexibility to accommodate weekday practices, weekend games, and tournaments
The following information highlights specific team responsibilities. The HEAD COACH is the Mukilteo FC team liaison and assumes the responsibility of ensuring that the team meets these obligations.
