JUNIOR COACHING SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

Loudoun Soccer is proud to announce the launch of its Junior Coaching School of Excellence.  The JCSE is designed for High School aged students interested in coaching in our Recreation program.

Registration deadline: Monday, February 19. Registration is now closed. Anyone interested in attending who has not yet registered should contact Dan Raben at dan.raben@loudounsoccer.com as soon as possible.

Interested candidates attend a one-day clinic on coaching, led by members of Loudoun Soccer’s Technical Staff, in addition to attending their program’s regularly scheduled pre-season coach clinic.

The JCSE will meet on Saturday, February 24 from 11 AM to 5 PM, at Balls Bluff Elementary (821 Battlefield Pkwy NE, Leesburg, VA 20176)/

Lunch will be provided.  All attendees should wear athletic clothing and indoor shoes as on-field participation may occur.

Sample schedule:

  • 11 AM-12 PM: Welcome, Introduction, Coach Expectations (working lunch)
  • 12-1:15 PM: Age Group Characteristics and Appropriate Training Topics
  • 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM: Leading a Training Session
  • 2:30-3:15 PM: Communicating with your Team
  • 3:30-4:30 PM: Coaching the Game
  • 4:45-5 PM: Closing Remarks

Those who attend this clinic may be placed as a volunteer coach within the Recreation program, and may receive employment opportunities in future years.  Coaches will also receive the following:

  • Loudoun Soccer JCSE top
  • Coach Equipment (cones, vests, ball, etc.) – distributed at pre-season coach clinics
  • Access to Loudoun Soccer’s Coaching Education Resource Center

Participation as a volunteer Recreation coach is a great opportunity to earn community service hours, bolster a college resume, and give back to your community.
