Kate Buchheit - AK & TX
01:22:46
Are there any other online trainings/webinars you could recommend for new or upcoming coaches?
Dave Robinson - FL
01:23:51
Certainly the coaching course is a must; also check out Positive Coaching Alliance and United Soccer Coaches
RONI ANDREW -- WI
01:27:00
networking is HUGE!
Mark Godwin - Florida Youth Soccer Association
01:28:13
When we get back to face to face meetings are there plans to bring in other associations. I remember that the FA came in to the USYS Workshop years ago in Dallas/Fort Worth and shared some of the work they are doing and even taught a class.
RONI ANDREW -- WI
01:30:04
Pete is AWESOME
Ericksen Gomez-Villeda
01:34:49
must sessions are on the fly...depends on who showa and what mood they're in.

01:38:27
how do you get consistent buddies for your program?
Jim Leahy
01:39:58
Our high school has a community service requirement and we’ve made it readily available to them.

High school community service hours
RONI ANDREW -- WI
01:40:09
Key Clubs...NHS
Dave Robinson - FL
01:41:26
I think you need to set the attendance expectations up-front
Dave Robinson - FL
01:42:35
Slides will be sent to everyone following the session tonight; look for them tomorrow!
Tracey Jones - Massachusetts
01:42:52
I agree. We state up front that it is a season long commitment. The TOPS players need consistency.
Ken Johnson -MA
01:47:39
Flip over puggs goals for tunnels and passing over
Dave Robinson - FL
01:49:00
Look for the Flaghouse catalog (and website) for specific special needs products
Sandy Castillo-Cal South-West Region Chair
01:53:01
Sportime catalog also has adaptive equipment
Danessa Castañeda Posen
01:58:09
We had students from the UNM PT program come to our sessions and other soccer teams in the club for clinical/community hours towards their degree.
Tracey Jones - Massachusetts
02:02:25
Shawn, you are so right! We had a year when it was free and the consistency of participation took a hit.
Tracey Jones - Massachusetts
02:03:06
We only charge enough to cover the cost of affiliation to the State but it make a big difference.
John Schlenker
02:04:51
We never charge for TOPS.
RONI ANDREW -- WI
02:05:58
Our Milwaukee WI program collaborates with Miracle League Baseball and Gigi's Playhouse!
Sandy Castillo-Cal South-West Region Chair
02:07:52
We have always charged since day one. We also offer scholarships to anyone who needs it. When they sign up, we tell the it's $30. If they pay great, if not, not a problem. We don't go back and ask for it. It's the honor system. I figure if they pay they can afford to, if they don't they can't.
John Schlenker
02:10:53
We have two sessions every Saturday -- based on skill level.
Shannon Hartinger-IL
02:13:08

This was awesome! Thank you!!!!
Jeff Mueller
02:13:41
I hear “kids” a lot. Are most folks’ program populated by younger athletes? Mine ranges from 7 - 57. It’s good, but also challenging. Great work Shawn.
Danessa Castañeda Posen
02:13:51
Thank you !
Joslynn Bigelow- OR
02:14:29
Mine ranges from four years old to adulthood. Trying to network with local recreation clubs to get our adults integrated into the rec leagues
LINDA KAUTZ
02:15:45
Ours range 4 to “young adult” ...multiple “teams” running either in succession or simultaneously in different areas of a large field.
Val Jakobi-IL
02:15:46
Terrific job as always Shawn! I always learn so much and get fresh ideas from you!
Tracey Jones - Massachusetts
02:16:20
Mine varies each year, but mostly 10 and up, and certainly into adulthood. I have a core group that have been with us since the start. They don’t think of their respective ages, only that they are enjoying playing soccer with each other.
Joslynn Bigelow- OR
02:17:51
Exactly! Majority of us publicize our "ability-based" programming. Age doesn't seem to be an issue
RONI ANDREW -- WI
02:24:33
PREACH SHIRLEY!!!
Shirley Thompson
02:27:37
Thank you as always Pete
Shawn Danhouser IL
02:27:38
Forgive me for using the term "Kids" too often. Of course Adults are involved as well. I try to use "athletes" but I often fall back on the word kids because I don't have any adults currently in my program. I'll continue to work on that.
Sandy Castillo-Cal South-West Region Chair
02:28:55
Just a message, it's TOPSoccer 30th year anniversary!!
Jace Beck- MT
