We are always looking for more help. As you might imagine, with ~1,000 players on the HSC rosters every season, we need as much help as we can find. From Coaches to Division Directors, there are any number of positions with HSC where you could share your time and talents. And we have plenty of resources to help you should you decide to join us.
All of the positions that are discussed below are VOLUNTEER positions only.
This is the one place where we typically need the most help. Those 1,000 players? They play on about 110 teams over the course of a season. And every one of those teams needs a coach. If you have soccer experience or were once a player, then this might be just the job for you. The time commitment? Roughly 2 to 4 hours per week will cover both the practice times and your game. And don't worry if you've never coached before. As we mentioned, we have plenty of people within HSC who love to share their knowledge of the game and their coaching experience. We even have books, DVDs, etc that you can look at. And our website has a number of practices/drills laid out that you can refer to.
This is probably HSC's most important job. We try to have one Division Director per age and gender division. For example, we try to have a Division Director for our U8 Boys teams as well as a Division Director for our U8 Girls teams. Your job? Several things here. We ask that you help assign players to teams before the season begins. Then, once we begin playing, we ask that you walk the fields to see your teams play each week. We begin playing around 9AM an we generally finish at 2PM. But you don't have to be at the fields every Saturday for 5 hours. But, walking the fields each week for an hour or so, meeting and getting to know your coaches is what we'd like to see.
Also, as a Division Director, we ask that you assume the role of liaison between the coaches for your division and the HSC Board of Directors. As Division Director, we ask that you listen to problems coaches or parents are having, investigate issues that arise, and report to the HSC administration how things are working.
We have a Board Meeting once per month, typically the first Monday night of each month. This meeting lasts roughly 3 hours.
