The First Steps Clinics will offer a fun and engaging introduction to coaching for volunteer coaches coming into the game. These coaching sessions will focus on a player-first and game-second approach. In order to engage all players, it is important that coaches recognize the responsibility of meeting the needs of the players and the ‘how to’ of coaching. This is a non-certification clinic, for coaches to come and participate in a demonstration of fun sessions and ideas to ignite their passion to coach. Clinics may be targeted for all age and ability considerations and will demonstrate how to adapt activities accordingly.
A confident and relaxed coach will develop successful players.
One of children’s biggest desires is for their parents to play and enjoy the game they love with them. The Parent Play sessions will include a presentation on key considerations for parents entering into their child’s soccer world. Parents will learn how to play some of the best soccer drills together with their child(ren). The Parent Play session is two hours in length and child supervision will be offered (by hosting communities) during the in-class presentation so parents can fully engage in the teachings.
Children learn best through doing – and so do their parents!
