We are looking for coaches.  Ideally coaches will have a good technical knowledge of the game, and have played competitively.  Each team need a minimum of 2 coaches, preferable 3.   Teams also require a team manager responsible for administration.  Coaches in  previous years have included parents, students and soccer enthusiasts.

We also seek volunteers to help in the running of the club, schedule games or able to offer legal/finance/administration skills.  Please complete the form below to register as a volunteer.
