Classes for Coaches

Georgia Soccer offers a series of coaching certification courses.  The courses are free to Georgia Soccer members.  If you are a Gilmer Soccer coach, parent, or athlete - this means YOU!  The G course is a 1/2 day course of U6 and U8.  The F course is a full day course for U10 and U12.  The F course is a prerequisite for the E course, so if you are interested in coaching U14 and up, take the F course now so you will be ready to take the E in the future.  These are highly recommended.  Search for Coaching Education on 8/22/15 to find the G and F courses in Ellijay.  Click here to register.  To find out more about the coaching courses and how to continue your coaching education after the F license, follow this link to the Georgia Soccer website.
