Policies & Guidelines

Saratoga Springs CSD Coach Training Policy

  1. It is the goal of the SWSC to bridge the gap between the teams and coaches within the Saratoga‐Wilton Soccer Club (SWSC) and the Saratoga Springs Central School District (SSCSD). Our board members and parents have been very impressed by the passion and commitment of Saratoga’ soccer coaches and want to help support them in their professional development.

  2. The SWSC pays for coaching clinics for our club coaches and wanted to extend this professional courtesy to the school coaches. Specifically, the SWSC will pay Saratoga varsity, junior varsity, freshmen and modified boys and girls soccer coaches who enroll in Capital District Youth Soccer League Level I and II coaching classes. Interested school coaches should contact the SWSC President in advance.

Coach Compensation Policy

The SWSC’s coach and trainer compensation policy is that all coaching fees and expense reimbursement should be paid by the players on the teams.

  1. Coaches can either ask for a fee per player or a reimbursement to cover expenses.
  2. Coaches may set their own fees. The Board must vote to approve the coaching and training fees. Coaches should justify their fees based upon license, experience, proposed training schedule, and other relevant factors.
  3. The Club will no longer award a $1,000 bonus for high school coaches who coach for SWSC.
  4. Parent coaches may receive a $250 deduction from his or her children’s fees for coaching.
  5. Assistant coaches are not be able to request money or deductions. Assistant Coaches can be reimbursed for any coaching class they take pending Board Approval.
