Soccer Coaching Directors from across the USA who attended the the University of Delaware (UD) and National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Advanced Director of Coaching Course graduated on January 15, 2015 at the NSCAA Convention in PA.
The Advanced Director of Coaching Certificate provides soccer club leaders and those responsible for the development of players with a practical programme oriented toward developing proficiency in the technical, theoretical, conceptual, managerial and ethical aspects of soccer club management and soccer player development.
The 19 Soccer Directors who stared the course at UD in June 2014 were challenged to take their learning back to their own club environments and deliver a project designed to support the club's infrastructure, coach and or player recruitment, development and retention.
Sarah was delighted to act as a tutor on the course and support Thomas Gansauge (Schwaben Soccer, IL) to build a coach development programme, DJ Pereira (Cheshire Soccer Club, CT) to design a training curriculum and Andrew Dietrich (Crossfire Alaska, AL) to deliver a grassroots programme for underprivileged children. All of the Directors must be congratulated on their efforts and the impact they have made on the Game in their community.
Congratulations to all on your achievement of the ADoC.
