Pro Coach Program

EDHSC Pro Coach Program

Traditionally, EDHSC implements a Parent Coach/Pro Trainer coaching model for all of our competitive teams.  In some cases however, in order to fully meet the needs of ALL our players, a team of certain caliber might be eligible to be assigned a full-time Pro Coach should it meet our Pro Coach criteria. Such criteria include (but not limited to) the following:

  • High ability and/or experience level of the team (Gold level minimum)
  • ‘Soccer committed’ players (soccer as priority sport)
  • Potential for team growth, style of play
  • Ambition of the team/players (hunger, drive, commitment)

If a team meets this criteria and has the desire from a majority consensus of the team, they can submit an official Pro Coach request which is reviewed by the Pro Coach committee (and EDHSC board) for approval.

How is the Pro Coached Model different from the traditional Parent Coach/Pro Trainer Model?

  • Pro Coach delivers ALL practices (2-3 teams per week depending on age group)
  • Pro Coach takes ALL games (playdates, tournaments, league play, State Cup)
  • 10-month minimum season commitment (June – Nov + Jan-April)
  • Higher coach expectation regarding attendance, attitude, performance level
  • Higher level of competition
  • Monthly coaching dues ($150-$185 per player per month, depending on age group)
  • Team subsidizes coach travel expenses
