Junior Coaches Program



The Potomac Soccer Junior Coaches Program was established in 2012 to allow boys and girls the opportunity to earn SSL hours, by assisting coaches throughout the club in club clinics, practices and summer camps.

Program Philosophy

By providing our players the opportunity to coach we feel this will have an impact not only on those players participating in the program but also the younger players that they are working with. It is important for younger kids beginning in the game to have role models as many may still not be aware or enthused by older professional players. By using older youth players for demonstrations and practices this is more realistic to the players encouraging them to practice certain skills. This all helps to create a healthy club environment in which players from all age groups come together and develop a bond and affiliation for the club that will last a life time.  

Program Mission

Our aim is to provide Potomac players the opportunity to earn SSL hours in an environment they are familiar and enthusiastic. By providing this service we feel it will be a great experience for them to learn valuable life skills such as communication, cooperation, organization, and discipline.

Brit-Am CIT Program

The Potomac/Brit-Am CIT program is a very competitive program designed to take campers who have demonstrated a good understanding of our standards and have a strong desire to work with children, and providing them with the training and skills necessary to be successful as a coach. The participants in the CIT program are held to the highest standard when working with us. You will be expected to assist, sometimes lead activities for younger campers, and you will be expected to meet the responsibilities that are given to you as a CIT. The CIT program is fun but for different reasons than being a camper. It is about discovering what you are capable of and finding your inner leader/coach.
