Coastal FC strongly believes that the strength of player development is directly linked to those who influence the players; the coaches are the foundation. Coaches are instructors, teachers, mentors and role models, who have the responsibility to cater to the soccer needs of the player first. Coaches should have unified goals, objectives, and programs. Our coaches should all be coaching for the players.
Developing coaches through certification, mentorship, and experiential learning opportunities will integrate the theoretical and practical aspects of coaching at Coastal FC. Coaches at Coastal FC will have opportunities to attend mentoring sessions, where coaches will participate in theoretical and practical sessions with Club Technical Staff. These sessions will be highly informative, resourceful, and a great opportunity for coaches to learn various aspects of coaching. Mark/Kristin, should this section marked in red above be removed since the Mentoring program is not offered at this time, based on my discussion with Mark (I removed the Mentorship page)?
Coaches are urged to complete the necessary certification levels that are relative to what level of soccer they will be coaching in the coming year. The following is a pathway guideline.
Kristin, can we say something like the following?
Coastal FC hosts the Community Sport Stream courses throughout the year at no cost to our members. We usually contact coaches to let them know about the courses. If you want to find out when the next course is offered, please contact Mark McQueen, Technical Director.
Kristin, where are the following courses held? Where can coaches get more information?
