The SJEB Junior Coach Mentor Program is available to any SJEB players interested in coaching in the future. Players can assist with teams 3 years or younger than themselves, players can learn from our coaching staff as well as give back to the club.
The Mentor Program works in two ways, the SJEB Coaches will mentor you, giving you valuable insight into training session structure structure, tactical training, technical training, progress a training session and how to structure training over a season, In turn you will mentor the younger players in our club and teach them what it is to be an elite player.
You will be expected to attend one training session per week of the team that you are assigned to by the clubs Technical Directors. We will take into account your own teams training schedule when assigning you to a younger team.
We currently have three players from the SJEB '03 Girls who mentor our U8 & U9 Girls teams and do a fantastic job, they are also great role models for our younger players who want to emulate them. The girls also get extra touches on the ball as they teach the ball mastery and footskills portion of the training sessions.
SJEB will pay for successful applicants to take their coaching badges (USSF 'F' or NSCAA) to help them start their coaching career. SJEB Will provide you with an Adidas coaches jersey. The position is on a voluntary basis.
SJEB players who have an interest in becoming a mentor to our younger players or have aspirations to be a coach in the future should fill out this application form.
Applicants need to be reliable, on time, enthusiastic, a good communicator, confident and have a professional appearance. Any un-excused absences and you will be removed from the program, if you miss more than two training sessions per year you will be removed from the program, a large part of being a leader is being on time and ever present, you cant lead when your not there.
If the interested player has have any questions please contact John Thompson, I will not answer any emails or calls from the parents, it has to be the player who initiates any conversation, they have to want to do this.
