Coaches

Ridgewood Soccer Association runs on the commitment and generosity of parents who volunteer to coach. Moms and Dads who coach are what make RSA fun for the kids.

If you’ve never coached before, you will love it and your child will feel proud to have you leading the team! All parents are welcome. No experience is necessary. To make it easier for our volunteers, professional trainers run our weekday practices. You only need to coach on game days.

We always need lots of help, so please join us on the field. In Community Pass, please register yourself as a coach for your child’s age group. Even if you have already registered your child for the fall, you can still log back in and register to coach.

Please Note:

All RSA coaches will require a Background check Child Safety Policy and must complete the online, video concussion Training  CDC Concussion Training .

Travel team coaches are required to enroll in the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Course. We recommend that In-town coaches complete the course as well. Courses are offered in Ridgewood and the surrounding area throughout the year so please consult the Rutgers course schedule.  RSA will reimburse all coaches who attend the Rutgers Safety Course. Please contact registrar@ridgewoodsoccer.org to arrange reimbursement.
