Volunteer head coaches are essential to the success of our recreational program. It is for that reason that, in order to assist our volunteer head coaches, we offer coaching clinics, reference material, and the opportunity to attend club team training sessions to help to enhance their knowledge of the game and facilitate the overall experience for all players through your own development as a parent coach.

We would love you to consider coaching your child’s team as you will treasure this unique experience.

Any person who volunteers to head coach for one (1) full recreation soccer year (Fall Season to Spring Season), attends all coaches' meetings and coach training sessions for their team held during the Fall and Spring season, will be granted one (1) free player waiver for the Spring Recreation Soccer Season. The waiver is ONLY valid for the upcoming Spring Season.  It cannot be carried over into any other soccer year/program nor transferred to another player.

Our coaches are provided with all the necessary training gear: Soccer balls, cones, vests (colored mesh shirts to divide teams into smaller groups).

If you are interested in coaching or have any questions, please feel free to contact Maggie Pesaresi, Program Administrator, at Maggie@ChargersSoccer.com





We understand financial situations can make extracurricular activities difficult.  If you feel you may financially qualify for a scholarship or extended payment plan, please click on the form links below and submit to our Recreational Program Administrator Maggie Pesaresi at Maggie@ChargersSoccer.com

Chargers S.C. do not own the fields on which we train and play. We use, help maintain and manage the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County School District facilities.  In order to maintain good working relationships with the field owners, we ask that all players, parents, and spectators follow all county and city ordinances in effect. This includes the prohibition of alcoholic beverages and animals on the park grounds and smoking inside the playing field fence. 



It is important to note that we will not cancel sessions prior to the scheduled session time due to weather unless it is obvious that the severe weather or field conditions will interfere with training/game. 

In order to ensure safe playing conditions for our players and to protect the integrity and structure of our fields, games or training sessions can be canceled under the following circumstances: 

  • City of Tampa Parks and Recreation field closure 
  • There is standing water on the field 
  • Lightning in the immediate area of a game or practice 
  • The Rec. Program Administrator, the Technical Director or the referee determine that there are unsafe conditions on or around a field 

    As soon as training/games are canceled the decision will be communicated via an email message is sent out to all registered players via the primary email account on file on our registration system (GotSport). 

    Cancelled sessions due to any of the reasons above may not be rescheduled.
