Our Fall 2024 Coaches meeting day/time is TBD. Will be held mid August.


If you are considering coaching for our next season, please email REGISTRAR@ODESSASOCCER.COM with any questions.


OSA strongly depends on friends, family members of the player, and members of the community to coach our rec teams.


All volunteers need to submit a background check and it be approved in order to coach. 

Sign into your GotSport account, go to your Dashboard, on the right you will see Background Check, click "DETAILS" and then click blue submit report button on the left, answer questions and then click submit at the bottom. After you have successfully submitted your BC, it will now say pending. 

Volunteers also need to take the SafeSport course. If you have already taken the initial course (about an hour long) you just need to take a refresher course. Only do one refresher course a season. Once you complete all refresher courses, you will need to take the long original course again. So, please only do ONE refresher course per season. 

Coaches are responsible for setting times and locations of practices for their teams. A park, school, or an open grass area. Location is up to you. Once you have a set day and time for practices, please email so we can do our best to keep track of practice locations. 

Coaches are responsible for deciding on uniforms. If you want to order something and have all the parents pay you for it or let the parents know what color shirt, shorts, and socks to buy. The only thing required for uniforms is a 6in number on the back. Anything else that is appropriate that you wish to put on it, is up to you.
