20+ NCFC Youth Coaches attend United Soccer Coaches convention

20+ NCFC Youth Coaches attend United Soccer Coaches convention

More than 20 coaches and directors attended the United Soccer Coaches Convention in Baltimore, MD at the beginning of January. This convention allowed our coaches to be immersed in more than 250 educational opportunities consisting of live field demonstrations and classroom sessions.

NCFC Youth’s elite caliber staff were displayed at the convention in classroom sessions, field demonstrations and other platforms. Gary Buete, CEO, lead a session that expressed the best practices for nonprofit management. Gary is known for his expertise in the youth nonprofit field and many attended his session to gain an understanding of how he runs a one of the most successful youth soccer clubs in the country. Nathan Thackeray, Director of Goalkeeping, lead classroom and field sessions to share his highly skilled knowledge on how to create a goalkeeper pathway from youth to pro. Lastly, coach Josh Perkins became one of the newest 30 under 30 program coaches. This honorable position is a year-long education and mentorship opportunity for a special group of 15 male and 15 female coaches who are leading the way in developing soccer players and enhancing the game.

NCFC Youth’s presence at the convention allowed our coaches and staff to be immersed in a culture that cultivated learning to enhance our North Carolina and club soccer community. We are excited to bring all the knowledge we gained at this year’s convention to NCFC Youth. Our NCFCY coaches will be able to take their newly gained knowledge and pass it on age group coaches, volunteer coaches and your players this spring season.
