Coaches Education and Equipment
The club would like every coach to possess a US D license: https://learning.ussoccer.com/coach
For the club to provide this service, we need a source of revenue to fund this. Each license cost approximately $600. This cost will be reimbursed back to the coach upon completion of the course. We will try and host these courses, so coaches don’t have to travel.
A major need that was identified with surveys was the need for better fields. For the club to improve our fields we need funds to do this. The club fee will address this need.
