Below are some important pre-season programs you can attend in person or online to get ready for the season. Some free... some discounted... we reimburse!
Some of you are veteran coaches and others have never picked up a stick. Not to worry, we have several opportunities to help you learn the game and learn to be a positive coach to your players and parents.
Another perk! All US Lacrosse LEVEL 1 CERTIFIED coaches receive one FREE East Bay Lacrosse registration fee. We pay for nearly every step of your certification AND rebate one registration fee minus the field use fee! What a BARGAIN!
We can always use coaches! Can never have enough! Please look over the training and workshops below to help get your started. NO MAN (or woman) IS AN ISLAND! We will pair new and returning coaches together!
Check it out & please contact me to discuss how we can help you become lacrosse coach.
There are education and training opportunities at all levels. In addition to the US Lacrosse and Positive Coaching Alliance offerings that will be outline below, this year we have contracted with REV Lacrosse and 3D Lacrosse to coach the kids and coach the coaches! More on that from your child's coach later on.
US LACROSSE LIVE CLINIC
The Level 1 Clinic brings the Level 1 online course to life through hands-on training facilitated by US Lacrosse-certified trainers. The curriculum is designed to introduce coaches to the responsibilities and philosophies of coaching and how to provide a safe and athlete-centered environment that emphasizes positive growth and sportsmanship. You’ll acquire the tools to teach rules, basic individual skills and basic team concepts to beginning players of all ages. This baseline training is relevant for all lacrosse coaches, regardless of experience.
Coaches must complete a Level 1 clinic to attain Level 1 certification. List price for clinics is $75 in advance or $90 within 10 days of a clinic.

All we ask is that you purchase these first and then submit your receipts for reimbursement to Brad Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org
