United Soccer of Auburn is holding a coaches’ orientation Sunday, August 23 at Pakachoag Church/Pappas Rec Complex, 203 Pakachoag St, Auburn.

U4, U5 and U6 will be from 1pm-3pm

We will cover intro to coaching, a little about USA, what the U4-U6 curriculum looks like, and go over some field activities to get you ready for the season.  There will also be handouts and refreshments. We will leave plenty of time for your questions. This is geared to newer coaches, but returning coaches are encouraged and welcome to come for a refresher, or to share your experiences with our newer coaches.

Travel – U10 and Above will be from 3pm-5pm

We will begin by going over important information about United Soccer of Auburn, MAYS and Mass Youth Soccer.  This includes administrative items (rosters, coach IDs, CORI), as well as game preparation, using SportsManager etc.  The second part of the session will cover strategy and tactics, and provide field activities to give coaches some ideas for the upcoming season.

For both sessions – Bring water, pen, notepad, and wear clothes appropriate for running through actual soccer activities on the field.

Representatives from FC Puma will be on hand to inttroduce themselves and to run portions of these program.  FC Puma is the organization we have selected to assist with our coach/player development this fall and moving forward.

We are also offering a U8 orientation, but our U8 coordinator is away on Aug 23, so the time and date for taht session will be announced shortly.
