Eastern Pennsylvania State Coaching Certificate Update

Gary talking to coaches
Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Assistant Technical Director Gary Stephenson's works with coaches from Panthers FC at a recent State Coaching Course.

Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer launched the State Coaching Certificate this fall to better help our recreation and volunteer coaches maximize the experience of their U6-U12 players.

We've worked with Panthers FC, Myerstown, Exeter Youth Soccer, Aston Youth Soccer and Hershey among others so far.

Here's what Robert Bounpane, of Myerstown Soccer Club,  said of the course:

“The Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer instructor did a great job last Saturday. He kept everyone involved, interested and active. At the end of a quick 90 minutes, everyone felt they got a lot out of it. From my stand point, it looked like several of them walked away thinking, 'I want to find out more about coaching.' That is very rewarding to me since I have been preaching how important it is to get our coaches into coaching education."

We look forward to two more this weekend with Jim Thorpe Youth Soccer and Wyoming Valley Youth Soccer.
