HVAA depends on volunteer coaches to assist with the running of our sports. With each season, we seek motivated, conscientious volunteers to assist us with the task of coaching our players. The success of the leagues depends on our volunteer coaches and assistants.
HVAA depends on volunteer coaches to assist with the running of our soccer leagues. HVAA is looking for volunteers to help coach our in-house soccer Junior, Intermediate and Senior leagues. You can request to coach a team when you register your child in his/her league during the online registration process.
We do appreciate the offer of all parents and interested individuals that offer to coach for HVAA. However it isn't always possible to accept all of the volunteers that we get. Please don't be discouraged if we can't accommodate your request to assist us each and every season. Our goal is as always to provide the best coaching staff that we can to each and every team. Click HERE for detailed instructions on how to apply for the clearances needed to coach/train for HVAA.
Our Coaches Committee has been tasked selecting the best of the volunteers, and then providing them with guidance and resources to increase their value to our programs. These checks will be strictly voluntary, but we will not select coaches for our activities that have not agreed to these measures. HVAA is committed to providing a safe and rewarding atmosphere for our players, and will begin conducting background checks on our volunteers to insure that this goal is achieved.
Thank you for supporting HVAA. Please send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
