New Rec Coach Help

Coaching our rec league is one of the very best jobs in the KMYSA system.  You are helping young kids grow in their love of a great game.  We are always in need of coaches; however we know that some parents/relatives/generally nice people that want to help have not grown up with the sport and might be intimidated in regards to coaching.

Let us clarify, we are not looking for experts. We are looking for people that are willing to give a bit of their time and provide a little direction and sportsman leadership.

We have four different rec age groupings and coaching is a bit different for each age group:

1. PreK/K groups: 45mins long (6-6:45p).  The first 20mins is having the kids play a couple of ten minute games.  Ideas are listed below.  Basically we start to get them to find spaces in the field and get used to touching the ball.  The last 20mins (or so) is playing a fun scrimmage against another PreK/K team.  Schedules are set up by KMYSA.  You will be assigned a half field each day.  The other half will have the team that your team will eventually play.

2. 1st/2nd grade group: 1hr long (6:45-7:45p).  Similar to the PreK/K groups.  First 30 minutes is playing a couple of games that are very similar to the PreK/K teams.  Normally the skills do not evolve a lot.  The last 30 minutes are playing a fun scrimmage game against the team sharing your field.

3.  3rd/4th grade group: 1hr long (6-7p).  This is where things change a bit.  Your team will either have a practice or game.  The schedule will rotate so that there are variations in who you play.  Skill levels have evolved a bit by this point.  Feel free to adjust practice games as you see fit.  You're still welcome to play a scrimmage against the team that you share the field with so long as coaches are in agreement.

4. 5th/6th grade group: 1hr long (7-8p).  Currently we are running a 'free play' format.  Meaning that we don't organize into teams based mostly on the amount of registrations.  The coach has total choice of how to run the day.  Whether it is total practice games or throw some pennies on half the squad and scrimmage.

General Information

KMYSA is excited to offer information in regards to our upcoming 2019 season.

KMYSA recreational season will start Tuesday, April 16th, 2019 and end Thursday, May 23rd. 

Practice and games are always on Tues and Thurs from the hours of 6p to 8p.
PreK & K: 6-645p
1/2 grade: 645 - 745p
3/4 grade: 6 - 7p
5/6 grade: 7-8p

All practices/games will be located on the soccer fields north and east of the KM High School building.

Teams will be designated in the same divisions as previous years:

PreK - Entering Kindergarten in Fall 2019
K - Currently Enrolled in Kindergarten
1/2 Grade
3/4 Grade
5/6 Grade

We utilize parent volunteers for coaches and always need lots of help.  We will offer a coaches clinic around the middle of March (we will email a notice out once we have an exact date) so that all coaches have the tools to be a great coach and offer a great experience.  All teams are coed.  Due to traditionally low numbers, the 5/6 grade teams will be a free play format which means we don't split into teams.  We host practice with whomever shows up and on game day we split up whomever shows into approximately even teams regardless of the number of kids that show.

Equipment needed to be supplied by parents:

Soccer Ball - Required ( PK-KGrades 3 & 4 size 4, Grades 5 & 6 size 4)

Soccer Cleats - Required (Grades 3-6 cannot wear a football/baseball cleat, must be a soccer cleat.)

Shin Guards - Required (Must be covered by socks)

Water Bottle - Highly recommended

Eye glasses must have a sport strap

Thanks,
KMYSA
