Here we go! all five videos from the coach education night with Jason Devos.
On July 11th about 50+ youth coaches gathered at Mahony and Sons pub for the monthly coach’s meetup. The group comes together to support one another with the challenges and questions that arise when you coach soccer in Canada. July was special because former professional footballer, current TSN analyst, and now Canadian Hall of Famer, Jason Devos, agreed to do a presentation on The Art of Defending.
This is the first of five clips we will show that illustrate little points you may add to your coaching. They are short and not George Lucas quality! We’re coaches not video experts 😉 [Turn up your volume a bit for after the first Brazil clip as we have taken the audio directly from the night itself. And if anyone wants to help with video during the next session let us know!]
Most importantly please join us for the real thing so you can meet other like-minded and fanatic youth coaches in your area. Everyone is here to support one another. Please join us. Professional coaches like Martin Rennie [see Martin’s presentation on improving Canadian soccer here], Jason Devos, and more are helping grow our knowledge so we can build a better future for our players. We can’t thank them enough.
Exciting exciting news. Keep your eyes peeled for this autumn’s gathering as we will be doing our first group in B.C.’s Okanagan, have special guest’s lined up for Vancouver and will be coming to Ontario to support our East Coast brothers and sisters. Going cross country. Game on!
