Coaching this level takes knowledge and commitment on the part of the coach-you will need a manager to assist you with other issues since the teams are large and travel. You must pass a background check like any coach in the club so we can attach you to a team. IF you are bringing a friendship team, all players need to register by the deadline. We have players waiting for a team and we cannot hold opening for players and we WILL NOT bump out players because of late or players recruited late by coaches. You can go through our website-left menu-links to go to the Frontier Country Soccer Association. They schedule your games and basically run your league, but we will assist you in any way we can. Below is a short list of items they require.
All coaches need to go to www.oksoccer.com the schedules and standing on the left menu/click on OSA Traveling Recreational League. THIS PAGE IS VERY IMPORTANT. It contains contact information for other coaches/clubs, schedules, dates, and forms.
1. TEAM INFORMATION for SCHEDULING FORM TEAM should be completed as soon as you decide to coach. DUE AUGUST 15TH IN OSA SOCCER OFFICE
2. Coaches will turn into OSA "blackout your dates"-It is due in OSA office by their posted date.
3. Follow the reschedule policy on NYSA website- 7-10 day notice for this group. BEFORE YOUR SCHEDULE GAME. We cannot cancel games after that point due to online scheduling-once the referees are in we must pay them therefore you will be charged referee fees-$100 per reschedule BLACK OUT DATES Since all of the clubs have different needs you must request what you need.
RESCHEDULES: It is extremely difficult to reschedule at this level. ALWAYS confirm a week before your game that the opposing team it committed to play. The procedure for reschedules is listed on the OSA website-but you must follow the reschedule policy of the home club. IF YOU MUST reschedule, you should play it asap in order not to lose a date due to weather or the season getting backed up. If you have a problem getting a contact number for a coach, please notify the office and we will assist you.
