Classic Coaching Course

Over 30 Recreation and Classic coaches attended the Classic Coaches Certification course held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday March 9-11. Roy Dunshee, the coach of Washington College, worked with the coaches on Saturday. We thank Roy for coming out and working with our coaches. Sunday included Goalkeeper training by MSI Goalkeeper coach Brennen Devney, as well as technical and possession games presented by MSI Director of Coaching Lance Van Winter.

Registration for the Classic Coaching Course is open. The course will be held on the weekend of March 9, 10 and 11, 2018.

The Classic Coaching Course is a 3 day course that is presented Friday evening, all day Saturday, and all day Sunday.  The Friday/Saturday components focus on teaching the basics for working with children, emphasizing the guided discovery method of coaching. Individual techniques and skills demonstrated include short passing, ball control, screening and turning with the ball, winning the ball, and movement skills/speed. Basic tactical concepts are also covered.  The Sunday component is devoted to technical and tactical uses of small-sided games, the study of systems of play, and a practice teaching component. Participants are given an opportunity to conduct a training session on an assigned topic and are assessed by the course instructor.

Please note that this course is welcome to all coaches but that MSI heavily subsidizes the registration cost for MSI coaches!!
