Information for SOSC Coaches

Thank you for your interest in becoming an coach for SOSC. We appreciate your interest and have a team of individuals that will be working to get you through our clearance process. This process can take up to 7-10 business days and is highly reliant on your application and accompanying documents being complete in addition to your timely response if follow-up is required. Any delays in your response to our inquiries may delay the process beyond the 7-10 business days that are typical of our clearance processes. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to you becoming a part of SOSC.

If you already registered to participate in Phase 1 of RTA, you do not need to register again. Please communicate directly with your athlete/team and community office to coordinate your participation in Phase 2.


  1. Read, then digitally sign and submit the COVID-19 Waiver and COVID-19 Code of Conduct via Docusign.
  2. Renew volunteer clearance status, if needed (see below)
  3. Return to Activity required training (see "Return to Activity Training" section below)
  • If your volunteer clearance status is expired, you will be receiving an email from the Volunteer Engagement Department with renewal instructions. If you are unsure or have questions, please contact
  • Only those Coaches that have completed all requirements will be allowed to participate in Phase 2 of our in-person activity.
  • Sports Skills Certification: Recertification will be required before the start of Phase 2. You will receive communication and instructions in the coming months from the Volunteer Engagement Department.
  1. Once you have completed and submitted the waiver, code of conduct, renewed your volunteer clearance (if needed), and completed all required trainings, we encourage you to wait 5-7 business days before reaching out to your Local Program Coordinator or local SOSC office to express interest in participating in Phase 2.
