The NFHCA Ready2Coach Clinic will run from 2:30-5:30 pm, an hour after the end of the Level 1 and will be held at the same facility, starting in the classroom. 

This three-hour NFHCA Ready2Coach Clinic focuses on pre-season preparation, practice planning, and the fundamentals to kick off your 2022 fall season strong.

  • Identify and assemble the key components of executing a successful pre-season
  • Engage in roundtable discussions with other coaches on relevant topics
  • Learn characteristics of sound drill design and progression, building on small games

"This is your opportunity to invest in yourself as a coach and your team! Network with other coaches and reignite your passion for learning and teaching the game. Your athletes will thank you!  

Upon completion of the Level 1 and NFHCA Ready2Coach Regional Clinic, all participants will receive a certificate of completion by both organizations.
