Learn to teach

As the snow begins to fall the last thing on your mind is likely soccer.

We at Castlegar Minor Soccer, however, are already planning another great season of soccer for next year. Our goal is to provide a program that is fun, challenging and ultimately provides your child with what they are looking for on the pitch. We know that our players are only as good as their coaches, so we are organizing coaching clinics to improve the level of coaching your child can receive.

In the past it has happened that a parent has reluctantly coached a team at the last minute since there was no one else to do it, and we commend you for doing that. What we would like to do this year is begin getting a list of coaches together for each age group from U4 up to U18 earlier,  by January 15, 2013. Then we would like to get you the training necessary to help you on the field. The more people we can sign up, the better we can plan, it’s that simple.

Coaching clinics can be planned for next year if we know who our coaches will be. Simply put, we need you! Anyone who would like more information on becoming a CMSA coach can contact me, Yuro Ihns, at 250-304-3806 or at   myihns@mac.com.

Please let us know your willingness to coach by January 13, 2013.

Thanks again for all of your efforts in making soccer in Castlegar a success!

-Yuro Ihns,

Castlegar
