Become a coach

We are always adding new coaches each season as others leave the program. The hurdles have gotten bigger than simply finding a volunteer and having them show up. There are several tasks due to laws and US Youth Soccer requirements that volunteers must complete. 

Please make sure you have done the following if you would like to coach an in-house team:

In-House Coaches Volunteer Registration Process

Please make sure you have done the following if you would like to coach a travel team:

  1. Logged into PA West Risk Portal as yourself and have an account where you volunteer (add a role where it will require you enter your birth date)
  2. Uploaded a picture of your face to that Affinity profile (to be used for your Coach’s Card presented on the field to the referees for PA-West games)
  3. Followed the guidelines for background checks including which to get and how to upload the PDF’s into PA-West so they can see and approve them in their system. Note: If you have lived in Pennsylvania continuously for the last 10 years or more and are using the affidavit, it MUST be notarized (More background check detail here)
  4. Did Grassroots Coach Training (More Coaching License detail here)
  5. Did Safesport Training for anti abuse bullying for coaches (More details on Safesport login here)

Here is a document with more details consolidated to help new volunteers:

Steps for uploading clearances and registering as a coach.

If you need to update your background documents, PA West will need to remove your old clearances prior to you being able to upload the new documents.  Please contact the Director of Rules and Regulations to start this process.

Please keep in mind that we do reimburse for clearances and certifications required to volunteer. Use the Reimbursement Form link located below.
