EMSA West community soccer program relies on volunteer coaches and team officials. We support our volunteer coaches and assistant coaches by offering coaching courses, refreshers course and office support. Without volunteer coaches our program can’t succeed. If you are interested in coaching or would like more information please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
West Zone offers our Mini Team Official’s (U4- U11) Free Training sessions.
Due to COVID-19, the current season start date has not been confirmed and ALL courses and meetings have been canceled.
The office staff is working on online material for our Team Officials and once we hear on what the season will look like and when it will proceed the information will be sent out by email.
