In-town Coaches

General Info

Thank you for your interest in becoming a FUSC Grade 1 - 4 Coach! We are always looking for great coaches to become a part of the FUSC family.  Our program runs on volunteers and we couldn't do it without individuals like yourself giving their time and energy so our children can have a great soccer season.  FUSC's intramural program is the foundation of the club.  It is during these small-sided games and practices that these young players develop their technical, tactical and ball skills.  If you have any questions, please contact the appropriate playing Grade Director before the season starts.  FUSC does not assign assistant coaches for in-town soccer. Parents interested assisting should inform the coach when contacted at the beginning of the season.

Coaching Requirements

The following must be completed before the season begins in order to coach:
       1. Volunteer to coach on the FUSC website
       2. Register as an adult and online CORI with MYSA (Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association
       3. Complete the online Concussion and SafeSport training after registering at MYSA.
The Google doc below has all of the directions necessary to complete the above items.
MYSA Badge & CORI Training Instructions

MYSA Credential/Badge

Once you have completed the above requirements you will receive your MYSA Badge.  All in-town head coaches are required to wear their MYSA Badge during practices and games. Coaches who do not have their MYSA Badge will be asked by the referee to sit on the parents' sideline.

Pre-Season Coaches Meeting

Prior to the start of the season there will be a coaches meeting.  At that meeting you will receive important information about the upcoming season and meet key members of the FUSC community.  You will also have the opportunity to ask any question you may have.  If you are unable to attend you will receive the information that was shared at the meeting via email.


FUSC provides all coaches with the basic equipment necessary to run successful practices and games. This basic equipment includes balls, cones, pinnies, ice packs and a bag. In addition, FUSC is able to accommodate a limited amount of special requests under certain circumstances. All equipment requests should be made by completing the Equipment Request Form. The Equipment Director will acknowledge your request and provide you with a date and location for when and where you can pick up the equipment:  Equipment Request Form

Any questions or concerns can be sent to Equipment Director.

Team Roster

The Grade Director will email you your team roster which will include parent contact info and player medical information about a week prior to the season.  Rosters are subject to change up until the second week of the season as players are moved to accommodate practice schedules and late registrations.


You will need to communicate with your team and the Grade Director via email prior to and throughout the season.  Once you receive your roster, you must email your team to introduce yourself and provide them with your team’s practice day/time/location for that season at least one week before the season begins.  During the season, you will need to be in touch with your team with any important information, including game/practice schedule changes or cancellations.  If you would like help with this, you can ask another parent on your team to be the “team manager”.  If you choose to do that, you must let the Grade Director know so they can include the manager on communications that go out to all the coaches.

Game Schedule and In-Town Rules

Schedules are typically available one week prior to the season after local field availability is finalized.  Schedules will be available to view on the FUSC website.  Typically teams play on Saturday mornings or early afternoons at varying times each week.

Rain & Field Conditions

Games will be cancelled if the City closes fields due to weather.  FUSC posts game day field status by 7:30 AM.  Field status will be posted on the Club's homepage. Once a field is open, BAYS referees are empowered to stop, suspend, or terminate a match for the safety of the players should weather or field conditions require that action.  If the fields are open, most often, games are on.  If you feel that conditions are not safe to play, you can choose to cancel.  If you choose to cancel your game, you must contact the opposing team’s coach, your Grade Director, and the in-town Referee Coordinator to notify them. You are also responsible for communicating this cancellation to your team. 

Coaches Meeting

The 2024 Spring Coaches Meeting will be in person at The Elks Lodge: 450 Union Ave.  March 26th 6 - 8 pm. Food will be provided.

All head coaches should attend or have an assistant coach or team manager present at the meeting.


Many intramural teams have their team managers collect money from the parents to buy trophies at the end of the season. Ordering instructions can be found in the order form.
