Coaching Education Clinic

The 3-day Coaches Education Clinic is scheduled for August 10-12 at Swope Soccer Village. It will run simultaneously with the Recreational Pre-Season Camp and offer new and experienced coaches the unique opportunity to learn from the perspective as a player AND as a coach. The purpose of the clinic is to give BSC rec coaches the tools to run more organized practices and games.

Youth Development Director Jason Lee will run the first two evenings of the clinic, introducing fresh ideas, new drills and techniques to the coaches.

On the third day of the clinic, players participating in the Recreational Pre-Season Camp will join the group in order for those recreational coaches attending the Coaches Education Clinic to coach players according to the knowledge gained over the previous two days with feedback from Coach Lee.

Coaches will learn ways to not only benefit the team as a whole, but ways to teach drills that will enhance individual player’s skills. The whole session will take place on the field as Coach Jason leads a warm and various drills and exercises designed to keep players engaged, out of lines and on their toes. Each day will incorporate a different theme and is guaranteed to get you ready for the fall season.

Even if coaches feel they know everything about coaching, we believe the clinic will be beneficial to everyone.
