Our Director of Coaching-Myron King-Enjoyed a five day United States Soccer A License renewal License to trip to Seattle over the past week. The USSF A License is the highest coaching license available in the US and only coaches with this level of license are able to attend these courses
Myron-"I am extremley honored to be a fulltime Director of Coaching for Illinois Fusion that I have the opportunity to attend these courses and bring back the latest trends and methods in the game to our club so ultimatley it will help our players develop and become better players. Being a soccer professional allows me time to really study, plan and continue to improve what I and our organization does.
This was an amazing trip. We had full access to the Seattle Sounders from the General Manager the whole way down to the youth teams. In addition we had some of the US Mens soccer coaching staff and the insight they gave into the US game and the direction we are going with our sport was amazing. Watching players such as Dempsey practice free kicks when he was no more from 20 steps away was unbelievable" Lots of new philosophies on the course and we will definatley be looking to implement some of these in our club to benefit all of our players".
Below are some pictures & video from this amazing coaching education opportunity.
