The CFJ West Coaches Corner has been designed to provide practical resources as well as inspiration and advice for all coaches. We realize that time can be a strain when planning, therefore, we have put together some training advice and activities which can be used throughout the season.
In addition to our coaching clinics, we are committed to providing the most up to date, comprehensive practice resources and ensuring that you, the coach, are part of our player development model. Please check back for new, exciting additions to this page!
