Coaches Information

Updated: 03/28/2018

Welcome!

Thank you for volunteering to coach in the SVU Recreation program this season! The Recreation program relies on the help of great volunteers, and we couldn't do it without YOU!

The Recreation program provides the opportunity for boys and girls to develop basic soccer skills and teamwork in a stress-free and FUN environment. Remember to be active and engaged during practices and games, because the players will feed off your energy. Have fun and let's have a great season!


Team Rosters & Game Schedules

We are in the process of posting team rosters. You will receive an email from the system when you have been added to a team and the roster has been posted. Team rosters may be updated throughout the week, so continue to check your roster to see if players have been added/removed. It is a good idea to bring your roster with you to the first few weeks of practice, as some players will arrive to the field and not know which team they are on.

Game schedules will be posted through the team pages. You will receive an email when the schedule has been posted. You can view the block game schedule in the Coaches Information Links above.

Please note: The layout of the Smithland Soccer Complex has changed this season (Fields 1A-1F have switched with Fields 1G-1J).


Team Name

Please make sure you know your team name and that the players/parents know it as well. In the past, some players and/or parents have been unaware of the name of their team.

Understanding your team name:

Ex: DC United Green (Swood)

DC United - Name of team
Green - Age group—Note: This is not the jersey color, this is just a way to differentiate the age groups.
(Swood) - Practice location—"Spotswood"

Colors of Age Groups:
U5 Coed - BlueU9/U10 Girls- Yellow
U6 Coed - WhiteU11/U12 Coed - Navy
U7 Coed - RedU11-U13 Girls - Purple
U8 Coed - GreenU14 Coed - Silver
U7/U8 Girls - PinkHS Coed - Gold
U9/U10 Coed - Orange 

Equipment/Uniform Pickup

Equipment

Each team's head coach is responsible for picking up an equipment bag with balls, cones, pinnies, and a first aid kit. Team equipment bags can be picked up at the conclusion of each Coaching Education Session. If you are unable to attend one of the sessions, you can pick up your coaching equipment bag from the SVU office.

Communication

Contacting Your Team

Once you have been added to your team roster, one coach from each team should create a Discussion through the Team Page to introduce yourselves and provide information for the first practice.

To access the Team Page, login to your account and either (1) click on "Visit Team Page" under the participants or (2) if you do not see "Visit Team Page" click on VOLUNTEER on the left and then you can see "Visit Team Page".

Helpful links for the Team Page:

Some things to include in a Discussion for Week 1:

We also strongly recommend sending weekly reminders about practice/game schedules.

  • Introduction of the coaches
  • Practice location, day, and time*
  • What to bring to practice
    • Comfortable soccer attire (uniform is for games only)
    • Shin guards (required for all age groups)
    • Soccer cleats (required for U7 and above)
    • Soccer ball
      • U5-U8 - Size 3
      • U9-U12 - Size 4
      • U14-HS - Size 5
  • Game information (can be found in Team Calendar)
    • Game time
    • Field number
    • Jersey color
      • The team listed first on the schedule is the "home" team and will wear the white jersey.
      • The second team listed is the "away" team and will wear blue.
      • Please remind families that it is always a good idea to bring both jerseys just in case!

*Please view the documents above to identify which field your team will be practicing on (e.g., Smithland Field 3A) and the layout of the complex. Many teams will be sharing a field, so don't be surprised if there is another team on your field. Please pick one half of the field until you know if there is another team on your field.
