Veteran Coaches To Share Experiences & Provide Guidance

Somerville Youth Soccer is pleased to announce the launch of a new Coach Mentoring Program, which partners veteran coaches with less-experienced coaches who are looking to gain knowledge, insight, and advice.

SYS is blessed to have many talented and experienced volunteers who generously donate their time to not only helping the youth of our city, but also those who share a similar dedication and want to improve their coaching.  New coaches are matched with veteran mentors who provide guidance in team management, practice and game planning, tactics, off-field preparation, and other key topics.

“We are delighted with the initial response we’ve received to this new program, and welcome others who would like to participate,” said SYS Director of Soccer Gregory Janks.  “Our goal is to provide new coaches with as much information and guidance as possible so they can create the best possible experience for our players and families.”

The SYS Coach Mentoring Program is available for all coaches at all three levels of competition:  Tykes, In-Town and Travel. If you are interested in either being a mentor, or in being connected to a mentor, please sign up at
