Volunteers are always welcome and we thank you so much for interest and your time in helping out the club. Since we are members of FYSA (Florida Youth Soccer Association) we require all volunteers to register under the “GotSoccer” system and complete a background check and take a “Heads Up” concussion course. All coaches are required to take at a minimum the US Soccer National “F” Course and license. The Villages Soccer Club thanks you for being involved and helping make this organization great!
- Create a separate account on GotSoccer. Please click HERE. Please make sure to choose the correct “Account Type” (Coach or manager).
- Complete the Background Check under the “background check” tab. Note: On August 1st the system will require all volunteers to redo their background check.

US Soccer National "F" License (Required for Coaches)
It takes approximately 2 hours to complete, and it is conducted entirely online. This course will share U.S. Soccer’s best practices in creating a fun, activity-centered and age-appropriate environment for 5-8 year old players.
This course is open to all applicants at least 16 years of age.
WHAT TO EXPECT
You will first be required to sign up for a user account , after registering for the course, you are granted access to the course content for 12 months. During that time, you can stop, rewind, or restart as often as needed.
You are required to complete a series of multiple-choice questions. Candidates will have multiple attempts to correctly answer all questions correctly.
It is our intention at The Villages Soccer Club that all our coaches continue to grow in their knowledge of the game. Even if 5-8 years is not the age you intend to coach, this course has good information and it is the first step towards becoming a better coach.
