Hi, there! We are less than a month away from our spring season! We’ve been busy bees here in the office getting everything ready for more great soccer games. Read on for the latest info!
We recently held our seasonal coaches meetings. We got to meet and see so many new volunteers who have stepped up to lead their children’s teams. We appreciate you and are excited to see what the season holds for you and your teams. Here’s a snapshot of our Thursday night meeting:
Special thanks to Cicis Pizza for feeding the coaches at our Thursday meeting. Did you know they recently moved? They are now conveniently located near Walmart at 2435 West Kenosha Avenue. Take your family and team out for a night full of yummy food and fun at Cicis, and let them know BASC sent you!
If you’re a coach who wasn’t able to attend one of the meetings, please click here to view the presentation. It’s mandatory for all coaches to be up-to-date on what was missed at the meeting, so be sure to check out the info.
We also have some great coach education opportunities coming up throughout the month! BASC’s head coach, Rick Heineman, will be teaching a free Youth Coaching Module on February 17th. This course is mandatory for all new coaches and highly recommended for those returning.
We will also be hosting US Soccer’s brand new Grassroots Licensing Courses on February 23rd, 24th, and 25th. The Grassroots courses are $35, but BASC will reimburse our coaches who provide us with their certificate of completion! Just email it to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the reimbursement.
You can find more information about these courses and find where to register by visiting www.bascok.com/coaching-education.
Our head coach is also interested in starting some Sunday afternoon training sessions for coaches who want to learn about a variety of new topics. If you have a topic you’d like to learn more about, or if you would like to lead a session, please email Rick at email@example.com.
As a reminder, all coaches must register for the season, pass a background check, complete online CDC concussion training, and upload a photo to their coach accounts in order to be fully registered and cleared for the season. Please check out BASC’s Coaches Corner for instructions and links to complete these things. Coaches who do not complete those things will be removed from their team accounts and will not be allowed on the field with their teams until these things are completed. All coaches who haven’t previously completed CDC concussion training have until February 20th to complete the course.
That’s all for this week! We appreciate all of our coaches and managers who take the time out of their busy schedules to volunteer for our club. Thanks a million!
