A CSM head coach is expected to represent Christ in character and service to youth through the game of soccer and through the creation and cultivation of mentoring relationships with the players and assistant coach on their team. Each coach is expected to fully participate in the ministry by running soccer practices that include leading Bible studies with their team, coaching on game days, and attending weekly coach development meetings. Coaches are responsible for their team and are expected to be involved and informed about the lives of their kids throughout the season.

Summer Assistant Coaches
A CSM Summer Assistant Coach will help the team head coaches in mentoring and coaching younger players. Each assistant coach is expected to fully participate in the ministry and fill approximately 15 hours a week by helping run soccer practices, attending assistant coach meetings, attending all games and outings, having a positive attitude, and actively serving the CSM community.
We can use help during the year for various needs, such as fall and spring assistant coaching, refereeing, cheering teams on, taking pictures, helping game day set up and break down, and assistance with different tournaments events we host and are involved in. Fill out our volunteer application to join us!
Adopt a team
Over the summer we invite groups of people to "adopt a team" during the ten weeks of our summer program. Our hope is to get 16 different groups (a couple of families, a couple of friends, or a small group, etc) who can together support a CSM team by simply by praying for them by name, cheering them on during their games or bringing a snack for the team to enjoy.
