Do you offer any coach and parent education programs?

The 'essence' of our club training service is to work not only with the players but also the parent coaches. This is a service we provide to clubs so that not only are the players receiving excellent training but the volunteer coaches are also learning to teach and coach in the practice environment. From time to time we also offer adult coach sessions at independent locations they are always great fun!

Formal coaching licenses are offered through the State association (EPYSA) and the United States Soccer Federation (USSF).

So what is the secret to great and perfect coaching?

Well having been involved in coaching for close to 25 years I can confidently tell you……………I am still working on it!

However an enthusiastic manner is a must allied to a calm demeanor and an acceptance of "player development over winning" as a fundamental youth coaching philosophy. Very often these traits are more important than expert knowledge particularly with younger players.
