Come and join our coaching team
Help us develop the next generation of West Michigan soccer players
Rapids FC offers an exciting opportunity to wannabe or experienced coaches, to be part of a forward-thinking soccer community. We pride ourselves on offering a player-first environment, where development, learning and love of the game comes first. We also want to offer as many professional development & mentoring opportunities to our coaches as possible, to help them grow and progress just like their teams.
Rapids FC is a non-profit club, but we compete alongside and against all the other West Michigan teams year round, offering high level “travel teams” at a competitive rate for families. We offer teams from U7 up to U19, both boys and girls.
Who we are looking for?
We are always on the look out for knowledgable parents to join us. If you are a parent, with a soccer passion looking to find your way into coaching, we offer assistant or head coach positions. You will benefit from a discount for your player, free coaching equipment and uniforms, free professional development (Rapids FC pays for approved licenses, courses and diplomas) and quality time spent with your child that you’ll remember forever.
Rapids FC offers a coaching pathway from the novice coach through to Senior Staff Coaches and even Directorship for the right candidates. Novice coaches can benefit from mentorship working alongside experienced coaches with an assigned team in a supportive club environment. More experienced coaches can often walk straight into head coaching one or more teams. You’ll get paid based on an established pay scale during the regular season, with extra compensation available to those coaches who can commit to camps, winter training, tryouts etc. Benefits for staff coaches include free equipment and coaches uniforms, free approved professional development, possibility to attend conferences, seminars and other events and the huge reward of seeing your hard work and love of soccer transfer to these young players.
