On Saturday, September 7th, McLean Youth Soccer hosted the U.S. Soccer F License Certificate Course. This course was taught by Gary Allen, senior staff instructor for the Virginia Youth Soccer Association coaching education program. Over 70 coaches completed the course, which included classroom and on-field activities. Recreation Program Director, Marianna Sullivan, observed: "What a morning! Hearing Gary describe how to find the game within the child inspired all of us. His first session with the players really gave coaches a great introduction as to what they can expect from a U6 group." Additional opportunities will be provided to recreation and travel program coaches as part of McLean Youth Soccer’s ongoing commitment to developing coaches in the club.
