Coach Education Clinics

Each season, WSSL is committed to providing coaches with "feet on" training sessions with professional coaches. Sessions take place in an indoor gym on weekday evenings. See WSSL's Calendar for details. Clinics for coaches are offered by professional coaches in partnership with The New York Red Bulls.

New York Red Bulls Resources

The Red Bull Training Programs follow a researched and proven approach to player development. They operate a building block approach to PlayerDevelopment. At a young age mastery of the ball is vital for a child's future development. Players follow a path focused on technique and skill development, as competency increases, tactical elements are introduced. Within each building block, an extensive curriculum is offered.
