For someone like me who has been out of coaching in the college ranks for over five years and with two young children it becomes easy to find excuses for not attending the annual conventions or workshops offered by our soccer associations. This weekend I had the chance to attend the US Youth Soccer Workshop in Boston. Reading through the clinicians and seminar summaries, I was excited to get energized entering the spring season.
While the event was well attended, in order to get more of our volunteer coaches out to these educational and thought provoking sessions we may need to consider how we promote these events in our towns and clubs.
