An important area of development for youths is a work experience. This can bring out the personality and character of an individual, but most importantly teach the life skills needed of commitment, work ethic, leadership, integrity, and accountability. Working and volunteering with youth groups is incredibly rewarding, and the experience is an eye opener to the influence and effect we as adults have on the youth, and how we can shape the future of individuals from an incredibly young age.
At Fremont YSC we have a program in place to help support and guide the players through their volunteering commitments needed for High School credits, and work opportunities in many of our programs including camps and recreation. One of the many generational changes has seen fewer workers from the younger generation, where many of today’s current workers had started working from as young as 12, whereas now a lot of people are not experiencing employment for the first time until after their college years.

Recreational coaching involves the set up and delivery of the 4 v 4 session. U8’s practice twice a week, while older’s have one 4 v 4 session.

All coaches receive coach education and contact support from the director of the program. These positions are compensated and the coach will be a staff member of the club. Coaches are expected to be committed to the role like any other occupation, with full attendance and effort expected. This prepares the individual for the role and demands of employment as they head towards young adulthood.
