Soccer Drills and Training Sessions

Each NSCAA convention features soccer coaching clinics where well-respected soccer coaches present technical and tactical training for soccer, and provide examples of how to coach each topic. The soccer clinic reports here were written by Soccer-Coach-L list members who watched the soccer clinics during all four days of the 1998 NSCAA Convention in Cincinnati. Volunteer reporters were coordinated by list member Gene Pitstick.
