Last week, AYSO attended the annual convention for the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). AYSO had a great presence at the event, here are some of the highlights:
• Scott Gimple, AYSO's Director of Player Development and Scott Snyder, AYSO's Player Development Technical Advisor taught their course "Age-Appropriate Player Development Using Parent Coaches" to a packed house on Thursday, Jan. 17.
• The AYSO National Office had a booth at the convention's huge exhibit hall. (Check out a portion of it here) Soccer star Taylor Twellman stopped by to spin the famous AYSO wheel. As part of the AYSO booth, five iPod Shuffles and an iPad Mini were awarded to six lucky winners. Check out the iPad winners here (they were ecstatic!).
• AYSO also got a chance to quickly catch up with soccer star and AYSO alum Julie Foudy. Check out a photo here!
• Scott Gimple presented the NSCAA's Robert Robinson High School Long Term Service Award (pictured above) to longtime coach and NSCAA Awards Committee Chairman Jeff Farnsworth.
