Coaches Reimbursment Program

In order to provide the best possible coaching experience the club provides training opportunities to coaches that include licensing. Ideally every coach would have their USSF "E" License and the coaching module for the ages or ages of children they are currently coaching. We do require that all developmental and classic coaches either have, or be obtaining their USSF "E" license.

OCSC will reimburse for your "E" license after completion of your first year of coaching. If you choose to obtain the next level of coaching your "D" license, OCSC will reimburse for your D license, reimbursement will be made at $100 per year, after completion of the coaching year for the next 3 years. ($100 after year one, $100 after year two and $100 after year three). For questions for reimbursement for any other license fees, please contact board in writing.

Coaches wishing to attend classes that have a cost not automatically covered should apply for coverage before attending the training to the club DOC and President. At the successful completion of the training please submit a copy of your payment, license and reimbursement form to the club treasurer for reimbursement.
