International Coaches Network-Field


International Coaches Network (ICN) aims to provide high-level international coaches to local clubs for either short or long terms. The project will match ICN coaches and trainers with local clubs or organizations for predetermined periods of time. They will assist in initiating educational and developmental programs within the club. They will not only assist in the design of these programs, they will provide teaching support for club coaches, trainers and administrative staff. The program is set to launch in the fall of 2015.

For more information on our coaches in the ICN, please contact us at avera@spisoccer.com
