We invite you to attend a two part coaching course that we have developed to give you a more in-depth look at game techniques and the ins and outs of town youth soccer coaching.

The first session will be held on Saturday January 30th from 10am-12pm at Pakachoag Church, and will be a classroom session.

We strongly encourage every coach – head and assistant – to attend these sessions. Please RSVP so we have a sense of how many coaches to expect – info@usauburn.com

In the event you cannot attend or need copies, we will be posting the electronic materials to SportsManager after the sessions are held.
