Coaches

To All CVSA Coaches/Possible Coaches

It is the mission of the Chartiers Valley Soccer Association to provide a quality soccer program committed to developing high quality youth soccer players, promoting physical fitness, teamwork and fun at a competitive level. Primarily for the residents of the Chartiers Valley School District, the association is a member of PA-West, the governing body for soccer in Western Pennsylvania, and adheres to all ethical rules set forth by that governing body. As such, CVSA has high expectation for adherence to the Code of Conduct by all coaches, players, parents and spectators participating in the program.

 


 We are always striving to make CVSA a better association.  We now require each coach interested in coaching to submit a resume to the CVSA Board no later than August 11th for the fall session and January 11th for the spring session.  We will then review the resumes that should include licensing information, your playing time on the field (high school/college), years coached and for who & where.   Once the resumes are submitted we will then look at the credentials of each applicant and choose the most qualified coach.  The Board will vote and the Coaches will be announced prior to the coaches meeting prior to each session..  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Frank Trosky, CVSA Director of Travel.
