NSCAA Educates Young Coaches From BIFC

On Tuesday, NSCAA coach and Director of Coaching at Emerald City FC, Erik Oman, came out to the Commodore fields on Bainbridge Island to educate a group of coaches young and old, but mostly young players who are products of the BIFC academy themselves, on the basics of coaching young children. He demonstrated a coaching philosophy that revolved around fun, positive attitudes and encouragement and most of all, nurturing a love of the game and self confidence in young children.
