Women's Coaching & Leadership Series

Thank you to everyone who attended the Women’s Coaching & Leadership Series! A huge thank you also goes out to our guest speakers. We look forward to seeing where we can take the series next – stay tuned to this page for updates!

Series Announcement:
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).

Please see the program of events for the series below:

Loudoun Soccer, in conjunction with Virginia Youth Soccer Association (VYSA) and Washington Area Girls Soccer (WAGS), is proud to be hosting two “Accelerating Women in Coaching” Grassroots coaching courses on Saturday, July 17th, 2021

These courses are for women only and completely free for qualified candidates (ages 16 and older). Two separate US Soccer Grassroots Coaching Courses are offered: 9v9, and 11v11.

The 11v11 Grassroots course is a prerequisite for US Soccer’s “D” License.

Registration is first come, first served for qualified candidates; you’re encouraged to enroll as soon as possible before this becomes more widely marketed to the greater soccer community. To verify eligibility, for questions, or to enroll, contact Kristen Osteen at [email protected].
