GotSport Account - Coach / Manager

Coach / Manager Registration

Coach and Manger registration is free, thank you for volunteering your time!

All Coaches-Registration/Background Checks

All coaches, assistant coaches, and managers need to be registered and have an approved background check.  We are issuing coach cards for all our recreational coaches.  These will take the place of the background check cards that are shown when you are approved.  You need to register using the coach link on the registration tab.  You will automatically be sent a confirmation email with your GotSoccer coach account login information. 

The background check access is on your GotSoccer coach account in the gray bar.  You will click either submit new report.  The new report box will bring up an online form for you to fill out and submit. Once you have registered as a coach, you will need to email the registrar about signing your coach card.  Thanks so much for volunteering with Eagle Mountain Soccer Association.

Expectations for a EMSA Coach

The coach of a team sets the attitude of everyone around them. This includes the players, parents and spectators. As the coach "the leader of the team" your responsibility is to provide a positive environment in which the children can learn and develop. The lessons that they learn extend beyond the child's soccer skills.

They include how to deal with conflict and how to demonstrate good sportsmanship before, during and after the game. Eagle Mountain Soccer Association expects the coach to lead by example and do their very best to provide a positive soccer

experience for their team. Please keep this in mind when interacting with players, parents, referees and the opposing team.

Coach Mantras

Primary focus on "development", not "winning" - subtle difference but very important.  Winning is desirable of course, but making it your primary focus, especially your primary short-term focus, will most likely lead to bad decisions in your training program and game execution.
