May 2, 2013, Charlottetown, PEI (ISN) – The UPEI Panther Academy soccer program is opening its training sessions to all PEI soccer club coaches looking for additional training and coaching techniques.

“This is a great way for coaches to absorb more information to bring back to their own teams,” said Panther Academy soccer leader Lewis Page. “Coaching is about acquiring more and more knowledge to incorporate into technical training and tactical strategies, and new ways to present concepts and deliver practices.”

Clubs coaches can observe Panther Soccer Head Coach Lewis Page and members of both the men’s and women’s soccer teams put the players through seven weeks of spring training. Sessions will include 1vs1 attacking and defending, passing and receiving, crossing and finishing, as well as tactical principles of play taught in small-sided games. Club coaches can attend, take notes, and ask questions.
