We need Volunteers!!

Each season we get more and more kids registered, which means we need more volunteers to coach

 

Odessa Soccer Association is a volunteer organization that facilitates the sport of soccer for the enjoyment of the participants.  Board members, league directors, coaches, assistant coaches, and team parents are all volunteers who give their time and efforts on behalf of the players. Without parent volunteers, the number of children able to participate would be decreased. Volunteer your time to your child, coach, team and league.

 

Odessa Soccer does not guarantee a coach for your childs team at the time of registration. We will do our best to find a coach. If we are unable to find a volunteer and you are not able to coach, we will then refund your registration fee minus $15 for processing and admin fees.

 

If you are wanting to coach, use the coach registration link below to register. Please read the information in the registration carefully as it will explain about the necessary requirements that will need to be completed in order to coach a team.

GAME SCHEDULES:
Will be released approximately the Wednesday prior to opening day.  Most games will be on Saturday. For U11 and up teams, games could be scheduled during the week and in Midland.

 

AFTER REGISTERING:
The next contact you will receive from OSA will be from the coach of your child's team. This is of course if you have turned in their birth certificate if needed. Your child's coach will receive the roster at the coaches meeting which is held approximately 3 weeks prior to opening day.  Coaches are asked to contact players shortly thereafter. The coach of your child's team will notify you of days, times, and locations he/she has chosen for practice.  Be prepared with your child's equipment and be ready for practice when the coach calls! 

If, your child's team does not have a coach, we will email all parents, early August asking for a volunteer to coach your child's team.

TEAM FORMATION AND PLACEMENT

·         All teams will be formed by birth year.

·         Teams are not co-ed. 

·         Placement based on current school location.  We try our best to place players on teams affiliated with schools near the player, but not all players can be placed close to home.  They can only be placed on teams where there are VOLUNTEER coaches in their age group. Want to guarantee practices close to home on a specific night?  Then volunteer as HEAD COACH!  OSA needs coaches for most age groups.  

·         NO Team Requests will be honored, unless this is players  first time ever playing with OSA

·         Practice day, time and location is determined by the Volunteer Coach.  This information will not be available until your player has actually been placed on a team. Coaches will contact the parents after the coaches meeting in August.  Practice can be once or twice a week as determined by the coach and age of the players. 

  •          Parents are always encouraged to include a note in their player's registration if there is an issue with current team.  Registration requests will NOT be honored even if the coach has indicated there is an open spot on the team.
  •          All age group players may buddy request one time, if they are new to OSA. This means they have NEVER played with OSA before.

 

PLAYERS EQUIPMENT:

1.  Jewelry is NOT allowed. For the safety of all players, all items of jewelry (necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings) are not allowed and must be removed.  Using tape to cover jewelry is not allowed. 

2. Ball - Every player should have their own ball.

·         U5 thru U8 groups - Size 3

5.  Water Bottle:  Players should have a water bottle at all practices and games.

6.  Uniforms: For all REC teams, uniforms are chosen by the Coach and will be an ADDED expense for the parents.
