Our Coaches

Lake Hills Soccer Club teams are coached by dedicated volunteers. Our soccer coaches are parents, grandparents, older siblings, and community members all coming together to support children as they learn and enjoy The Beautiful Game.

Lake Hills programs allow for and encourage coaches to grow along with their players. Not every coach comes to us with soccer or coaching experience. Volunteers with an enthusiastic desire to learn will find training and guidance from both Lake Hills Soccer Club and Eastside Youth Soccer Association.

All Lake Hills coaches and team managers must pass a national background check and complete training in the following areas:

  • Concussion Awareness
  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness
  • Abuse Prevention

Email Registrar@lakehillssoccer.org for more information about coaching opportunities.

Lake Hills Soccer Club team names all end with a letter and a two digit number that usually remains the same year after year. The letter, B or G,  indicates whether the team is a Boys team or a Girls team. The number indicates the birth year of the players on the team. Example:

Lake Hills Tornadoes B09  is a team for boys born in 2009.

Sometimes teams and players are referred to by their age level, which of course changes every year. In the example above, the Tornadoes B09 will play at the U11 age level in the 2019-20 season. In other words, in 2019 the Tornadoes will be a U11 team. The age level may also include gender, such as BU11. Confusion can result when the birth year and play level are similar. In 2017, teams for boys and girls born in 2010 (B09 and G09) played at the U9 age level (BU9 and GU9) The following year, the teams played BU10 and GU10 but their names continued to include B09 or G09 based on the player birth year.

After rosters are released to coaches in June, the LHSC Competition Chair requests the coach’s input on a survey. Coaches are asked to gauge how well the team did in the past season and to guesstimate whether they believe the team should be moved into a more or less challenging division for the next season. The competition chair, in conjunction with the league use that information along with past season standings and other league data to place all teams in a division to provide them with a FUN and competitive season.

Placing dozens of teams in divisions is a complicated process, as is writing the actual schedules for all of the teams’ games. Moving a team to a different division after the season starts is not possible. The coach should consult with LHSC Competition Chair and/or Rec Program Chair to find ways to maximize player development while still exercising good sportsmanship.

In order to ensure that ALL teams land in a division where they can be as challenged and competitive as possible, coaches need to provide input. In late June/early July coaches are asked to fill out a survey regarding their teams’ relative strength. Coach feedback is important in all cases. Along with feedback, the league takes the past season record into account when placing teams. In general, the top 1-2 teams in a division are moved up and the bottom 1-2 teams are moved down a division WHEN POSSIBLE. The number of teams in an age group changes from year to year, so the number of divisions sometimes does as well. For example: If an age group changes from having three divisions to two, it’s not possible for the team at the bottom of Division 2 to move down, however their division will likely have teams from the previous year’s Division 3, so the placement is likely to be more appropriate. Team-specific questions should be directed to the LHSC Competition Chair so they can be answered in the context of that that team’s age group and divisions.
