2015 National Soccer Coaching Conference

Registration for the 2015 National Soccer Coaching Conference is open and promotions have begun (including the email below that was circulated last week by Varsity Blues staff). I’ve heard from past attendees that the on-field sessions are helpful and the discussions fairly rich. A fantastic event to attend for anyone looking to network with other coaches and gain some coaching tools.
