LEESBURG, VA (October, 2018) – Loudoun Soccer is thrilled to announce the launch of its Women’s Coaching & Leadership Series, a collection of events aimed at promoting and encouraging the participation of women in soccer coaching programs.

The series features a selection of speakers from both the sporting and non-sporting worlds. In addition to the guest speaker, each session will include a coaching planning exercise associated with the theme of the evening. The experience is intended to empower female coaches, and further develop their leadership both on and off the field.

“We are delighted to offer the Women’s Coaching & Leadership series,” said Mark Ryan, Loudoun Soccer Technical Director. “The knowledge and experience that our speakers bring will inspire female coaches to continue to progress as leaders in the game.”

All coaches are welcome to attend – Rec and Travel coaches within Loudoun Soccer; high school and collegiate soccer coaches; and coaches from other soccer organizations. Admission is free, although online registration for each clinic is required, as space is limited.
