Coaching for Fond du Lac Soccer

With over 1500+ players in our soccer programs the Fond du Lac Soccer Association is always in need of dedicated coaches. The recreation league is comprised of 100% volunteer coaches who are mainly parents willing to go that extra mile to help out. The Academy and Select League Coaches are compensated and are required to hold active coaching licenses sufficient to the level they are coaching.

If you are eager to help please consider volunteering your time to be a soccer coach. The coaches’ corner page has been developed as a resource for all of our club coaches; ranging from the recreational level all the way up to elite level coaches. Various educational articles will be posted along with some club guidelines and recommendations on various topics such as: nutrition, warm-ups, cool-down’s, sample session plans, etc.
