Cathedral City Soccer - Region 1200

Become a Volunteer

Region 1200 Cathedral City would like to invite you parents, aunts, uncles, grandmas, grandpas, siblings, friends or guardians of your player to volunteer to become a coach or referee in our soccer program. NO EXPERICANCE NECESSARY, being that we are a volunteer run organization the children unfortunately can not play if there are no coaches for a team or if there are no referees for a game.

Coaching your child can be a very rewarding experience and there is no better way to bond with your child than by being a part of their soccer experience. Whether you are a male or female we will train you to succeed as a coach and supply you with the necessary tools for success. 

Those of you that are interested in becoming a Referee can get in on the action by volunteering to be a referee. We will train you on all the rules and the spirit of the game for you to have a rewarding experience plus providing you with the uniform. Contact Greg Jackson our referee administrator.
