Coaching Clinics

This is the second year that we will be using the Cal North rules of play this year. Note that there are some rule changes regarding handball, penalty kick, etc. We will go over the changes at the coaches meeting and Sean Valentine (Referee Coordinator) will be there for any questions. Also, we are in need of additional coaches due to our anticipation of increased enrollment. If you assisted last year and would like to step up to coaching please let me know. We will be having coaching clinics starting in the summer that would specialize in the age group that you would be coaching.

We will need for all coaches and assistants coaches to re-register online http://goldcountry.calnorthlive.com

Also, if you have someone interested in coaching this year, please forward this email or have them get in contact with me.

Coaching Clinic Dates - Attending at least 1 is required - even if you did it last year.
