Just as Eclipse commits to developing our players, we also commit to developing our coaches! During the spring, the entire coaching staff met for training sessions on the topics of Developing Practice Sessions and Communication. The coaching staff has a full slate of development meetings set for the year to ensure all of the coaches continue to grow in the Eclipse way. All of our coaches also participate in training to become certified in the areas of CPR, First Aid, Concussion Safety, and Mandatory Reporting.
In addition to internal development meetings, Eclipse coaches are supported in their efforts to obtain external coaching licenses and diplomas. This spring, nearly half of our coaching staff has already bolstered their coaching resumes with new licenses and diplomas through the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. Congratulations to our coaches on continuing their education!
