Clinic Soccer

Welcome

Welcome to the home page for GORC Clinic Soccer. Our soccer program is offered for U4, U5/U6 and the U7/U8 age groups only at this time. For our older and more serious soccer players, we recommend Arundel Soccer. You can find more information about them by visiting their website at www.arundelsoccer.com

Volunteers Needed

This program can only succeed with the help of volunteers. We never want to turn away players, but we need enough coaches to form teams for all of the players signed up.  If we do not have enough coaches, we will not form teams and your money will be refunded.

  • Head Coaches - always needed! Take charge of a team, teaching age-appropriate skills and ensure a fun learning environment for the kids! (Background check & current PCA Training required.)
  • Assistant Coaches - help your child's coach run drills, stay focused, ensure equal field time. (Background Check required.)
  • Team Parents - planning snacks, team parties, Spring Parade banners, etc.
  • Field Lining - lining the fields for practices & games takes less than 1 hour a week! Duty will be divided & assigned amongst teams weekly.

Please consider helping out.  Coaches do not need soccer experience.  We will provide you with the tools you need to run a successful season.  Show your kids how to be a team player!
