This course applies To ALL Head Coaches and  Assistant Coaches.

On Saturday,  August 24, 2019 @ Cleburne High School 850 N Nolan River Rd, Cleburne Soccer Association, in conjunction with US Soccer, will host the 1st two modules of the Grass Roots Coaching Pathway.  We will host the 4v4 course and the 7V7 course. The 4V4 course will run from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm, and the 7V7 course will run from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. 

All CSA coaches, regardless of experience, are invited to attend. It is a great idea to take both courses, but obviously if you are coaching 8U and below the 4V4 course is a must. If you are an experienced coach, or are coaching 10U and above, it is highly encouraged to take both courses. The 4V4 has great information that can be used at any level of coaching. 

All coaches need continuing Coaching Education. No matter what level you are coaching at, you will need the knowledge and skills to properly develop players We will have local training for you to attend this year. We will be holding two training courses this year for all coaches and this training will be free for all registered CSA coaches.
