Coaching Standards
What it takes to be a Universal Coach

All Universal coaches attend our in-house coaching school designed to educate our coaches on the current methods of soccer, and to continue their education in the beautiful game.

Coaches understand our curriculum and training programs the Universal way.

Our coaches are trained and expected to have knowledge of the game, and know how to motivate and understand our students.
