An Incredible Way to Give Back to Worthington Soccer
We hope your year has started great and that you are enjoying the Spring sun in Worthington!
I want to share an INCREDIBLE way you can GIVE BACK to the Worthington soccer community - COACHING! Annually we reach out to our network to find great coaches in Central Ohio for our Worthington United 94 soccer program.
I have realized over the last 6 years working with United that some of our BEST coaches are:
parents that have a great passion for the game of soccer AND a passion for working with children right here in our community.
recommendations of people (from you) who have great character that love the game of soccer and want to give back to the next generation.
Coaching a club soccer team is a commitment: 2-3 practices a week; typically 1 game per week; 2 tournaments a season (local at younger ages; some travel as the players get older). I have had an amazing opportunity to coach my three children from WYB Rec through various levels of the game (Keira -18-, now a freshman xcountry and track athelte at Otterbein U; Keegan -16-, a junior soccer player at WKHS and with United 94; and Ryan -12- a 7th grader at McCord who plays soccer with United 94 and is a xcountry and track athlete as well).
The time and efforts I have had the privilege of giving to players and families have exponential dividends that lead to:
new, growing, and life-long friendships,
impacting children (including my own) in much more than soccer,
contributing to the greater good of the Worthington Community by helping our youth build CHARACTER, FITNESS, SKILL, and GAME SENSE in a community of friends and in an amazing sport.
and of course, having a BLAST!
We know the most incredible resource in Worthington is the people that make up our great community.
If you have a passion for the sport of soccer, a passion for impacting children in a positive way, time that allows you to give back to the next generation, a willingness to continue to grow as a coach, and would like to be part of a greater team doing all of the above, please reach out to us!
If you know someone who has the above attributes and they are interested in giving back to our youth players in a great game, please pass on their name.
You can contact Kevin Donovan -United's NEW (since June 2018) Director of Coaching @
to share your interest or to recommend someone - Kevin can talk and/or meet directly with you.
