The Germantown Legends Soccer program is seeking high-quality, energetic volunteers to coach and manage REC teams for children ages 4 to 19.

Volunteers are the cornerstone of the Future Legends and Jr. Legends (recreational soccer) programs.  As a volunteer, you have the opportunity to teach valuable life-long lessons to children of Germantown.  Self-confidence, sportsmanship, learning to be part of a team and promoting physical fitness are all values volunteer coaches can instill in the lives of local children.  While over 80 local parents volunteering their time to coach (or manage) in this program each year, we never seem to have enough.

Securing coaches and other parent volunteers in advance of the season is of great necessity when organizing a recreational sports program.  Join us, and give something back to your community.  Being a volunteer allows you to make new friends, build new skills and help Germantown children play at home.

Be a coach for your child’s team and share moments that last a lifetime.

Remember, the Future Legends and Jr. Legends are RECREATIONAL soccer programs.  Our goal is to keep sports fun for children while emphasizing basic skill development and physical fitness.  These are NOT competitive, intense, sports leagues. Our coaches are charged with teaching basic skills and reminding kids to have fun!

If you are on the fence or nervous about committing, don't be. We provide several tools to help prepare you… from weekly Skill sessions for players, Practice Plans and Ideas, Coaches’ Games, to even Coaching Courses.

You won't be alone.  We encourage each team to have a minimum of two coaches and one team manager.

  • Head Coach
  • Assistant Coach
  • Team Manager

If you have questions, please send an email to

If you'd like to volunteer, please register yourself online as a volunteer coach or manager.
