2012 Whitecaps FC Coaching Clinic presented by Tim Hortons
“Last year’s inaugural Coaching Clinic was a great success, so we’re thrilled to again be partnering with Tim Hortons to bring back this event for a second straight year,” said Whitecaps FC president Bob Lenarduzzi. “This is a terrific opportunity for coaches of all levels to be provided with coaching tips from our professional staff, which ultimately will help them continue to develop local players.”
Local coaches are invited to join members of Whitecaps FC’s technical staff from the club’s MLS, Residency, and Girls Elite teams. Participants will hear from a variety of ‘Caps coaches and have a chance to learn new drills and coaching techniques, followed by a formal question and answer period.
The event is designed to help participants hone their coaching techniques, which will help soccer players reach their full technical, tactical, mental, and physical potential.
All coaches who register will receive a Tim Hortons gift card and travel mug, as well as a copy of the drills included in the clinic.
After the clinic, coaches are invited to come back and watch as Whitecaps FC host Western Conference rivals Real Salt Lake. Tickets are available to all Coaching Clinic participants and their families at a specially priced rate of $20. To purchase tickets, contact Jennifer Wills at firstname.lastname@example.org or 778.330.1358. Deadline to order tickets is Friday, September 20, 2013 at 5 p.m.
