The Coaching Manual is delighted to announce a partnership with SOCAL Soccer League, which will support coaches and players at hundreds of clubs across Southern California.
As part of the new partnership, SOCAL will use their own ‘white label’ version of The Coaching Manual, featuring TCM’s world-class video sessions and industry-leading planning tools, as well as a collection of SOCAL's own coaching content.
Using the new tools at their disposal, thousands of coaches under the SOCAL league structure will be able to plan and deliver full seasons'-worth of training sessions, while also sharing content within their own club and efficiently developing and communicating their team's own unique playing philosophies.
Cris Gilmore, Director of Special Programming at SOCAL, said: "We are very excited for our long term partnership with The Coaching Manual. They've always been a leader in online coaching content and coaching development, and now our soccer community will have full access to their library of coaching resources. In addition, our highly experienced coaching community will be able to collaborate and share their best practices and help bring the region to a higher coaching level with tools that are so easy to use and so easily accessible, ultimately improving all the players in our region."
The Coaching Manual founder Chris Barton said: "Since its inception, SOCAL has always been about prioritising player development, so we are delighted that they have chosen The Coaching Manual to help coaches deliver their training sessions. With the content and resources at their fingertips, we know the future of the league's players is in safe hands. We're really excited to see what they do with the platform and The Coaching Manual will be here to support them on their journey."
The Coaching Manual is a resource built for soccer coaches who want to improve their understanding of coaching, find real practical sessions which they can use, and accelerate the development of their players by creating a first-class soccer learning environment. The wealth of broadcast-quality video content available on The Coaching Manual includes a series of masterclasses delivered by some of the most highly-respected coaches in the game, recorded in partnership with the League Managers Association.
The platform is trusted by coaches, clubs, and organisations around the world from grassroots to elite level, including Southampton FC, Sheffield United FC, Rangers FC, the American Youth Soccer Organization, Chicago Fire, and more. The platform is also used by professional players in England training to be coaches through The Coaching Manual's partnership with the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA).
SOCAL (formerly the Southern California Developmental Soccer League) has member clubs throughout Southern California from Ventura County down to San Diego County and all counties in between. SOCAL's competitive programming has multiple levels, from recreational to competitive, so there is a level of play for every player that wants to play the beautiful game of soccer.
