Our fall rec coach training and equipment hand-out is scheduled for Saturday, August 26th on the fields at Christiansburg Middle School (CMS)
9:00-9:30 – U8 Coaches, bring yourself and your player so we can demonstrate games/drills.
9:30-10:00 – U10 Coaches, bring yourself and your player so we can demonstrate games/drills.
10:00-11:00 – PreK & K Coaches, bring yourself and your player so we can demonstrate games/drills.
Although many divisions are not complete yet due to the lack of coaches and not all of coaches have been assigned teams, we need to pass along the coach training and equipment hand-out information. If you volunteered to coach in U8B, U10B, U13C or U13C, either as an assistant or head coach, you will be assigned to a team. So even though you haven’t gotten your roster yet, you will shortly.
U13 Coaches – If you know of anyone interested in coaching or if you have registered as an assistant coach but can be a head coach, please contact me. We need coaches for 3-4 more teams.
Equipment handed out will only be coaching equipment – cones, discs, bags, goals. Player jerseys will not be handed out, so if you have equipment from previous seasons and don’t need training you do NOT need to attend on Saturday.
If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org
See you on Saturday.
This July the NSCAA will be offering the Level 1 and 2 Goalkeeper Diploma courses in Roanoke. The Level 1 is a six hour course geared towards the team coach and the Level 2 is a 12 hour course that is geared towards the specialist coach as well as giving the team coach more in-depth information in regards to training their goalkeepers. Both courses include lecture (theory) and field (practical) sessions. Below are the links for the course information as well as registration.
