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 FEBRUARY 19TH TO THE OSA SOCCER OFFICE -Pauletta@oksoccer.com
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.
