Dear ATSC Families:
As we begin the Spring 2009 soccer season, Arlington Soccer Association’s Travel Soccer Club is also planning for Fall 2009. Flyers with information on the U9-U12 tryouts are being distributed in Arlington Public Schools this week. The U13-U19 tryout schedules and all coaching assignments for Fall 2009/Spring 2010 will be posted to the ATSC website by April 30.
For the Fall 2009 soccer season, Arlington Soccer will reorganize the Travel Soccer Club Director of Coaching responsibilities. Under the new structure, we will have three positions responsible for the technical direction and management of coaches in the Club. There will be a Director of Coaching for Boys’ teams and a Director of Coaching for Girls who will be responsible for overseeing and coordinating coaches for teams in their respective gender group. The third position, Director of Player Development, will be responsible for designing and implementing player training programs, including clinics, camps and other technical and functional training programs. These positions wiill report to ASA Executive Director, Matt Baehr. Grant Smith, ATSC’s current Director of Coaching, will be the Director of Coaching on the boys side. Current ATSC coaches are aware of these changes. Arlington Soccer Association is currently accepting applications for these positions from within the organization and will also consider qualified candidates from outside. ATSC teams should, as always, direct any questions to the Girls and Boys Commissioners.
