Loudoun Soccer is thrilled to announce the launch of its Women’s Coaching & Leadership Series, a collection of events designed to promote and encourage the participation of women in soccer coaching programs.

Each event will feature a guest speaker in addition to coaching planning sessions in line with the theme of the evening.

All female coaches in the club (Travel and Rec) are encouraged to attend. Female coaches from outside of the club (high school, college, Travel club coaches from other organizations, etc.) and those aspiring to coach are invited as well. All coaches are welcome.

Online registration is required, as space is limited (first come, first served).

With the continued growth in women’s soccer both in the USA and globally, the club looks forward to building upon its foundation to elevate the influence of female participants both in coaching and in the sport of soccer overall.

Location: Loudoun Soccer Park (19798 Sycolin Rd, Leesburg VA 20175)

Sessions will be held in the basement meeting room – please enter via the side door nearest the turf fields (look for the “Loudoun Soccer” awning, and enter down the stairs).
