Player Employment Opportunities
Munchkin/Kindergarten Program & Referee Program
The Cold Spring Harbor Huntington Soccer Club provides opportunities for our more experienced players with a thorough knowledge of soccer in grades 8 or higher. Players will be supporting our youngest players as they learn the skills and rules of the game. Priority is given to current CSHHSC travel team players as well as to players who have demonstrated their commitment in past seasons.
The Munchkin Program takes place in the fall and spring on Saturday mornings from 8:30am – 11:45am. Trainers will be required to be at the field by 8:30 to go over the training session with the coaching staff. The sessions run from 9-10 for the boys and 10:30-11:30 for the girls. All equipment will be set up and broken down by trainers.
Trainers will be paid $30 per day. Trainers are expected to be at both sessions on a particular date. Trainers that need Community Service can use this work to complete this requirement.
Trainers will be sent the practice sessions via e-mail during the week prior to the session and will be expected to have reviewed the drills and be prepared to demonstrate the skills that will be practiced. The trainers will be the leaders of the practice although we will encourage participation from parents. In addition to soccer proficiency it is important to come with the proper amount of enthusiasm. With Kindergarten aged players this is extremely important. Those trainers that do not exhibit the proper level of enthusiasm will be asked to improve. If they do not improve we will not able to continue to utilize them as trainers.
The Referee Program takes place during fall and spring seasons. Players ages 5 - 10 play intramural games on Saturday mornings on Huntington School District and Cold Spring Harbor School District fields. SSI Travel games are played on Saturdays and Sundays. Most intramural games are played between the hours of 8am and 1pm, and SSI Travel games are played at various times on Saturdays and Sundays. Referees are paid on a per game basis commensurate with the age division of play. Equipment, training, and support is provided. Referees are given proper equipment and documentation for which they are responsible during the season. A mandatory pre-season referee training course will be offered prior to the start of the season.
As referees will serve as authorities both on and off the field, they must be able to work responsibly and maturely with players, coaches, and parents. A referee should feel comfortable teaching the youngest players basic rules during a game as well as have confidence in his/her 'call' when a play is challenged by a parent or coach. A referee must also abide by his/her commitment outside of the game by starting on time and abiding by the schedule. While other activities will prevent a referee from working every weekend, he/she should be able to commit to working a minimum number of games throughout the season.
