Coaches Clinics are annual events we host for our coaches to further their training as Coaches in LEAD222 and in their own ministries. All of our coaches must participate in one Coaches Clinic each year.  While we prefer coaches to gather in person for a Coaches Clinic training event, we understand that many coaches are not able to attend, so we have designed a training strategy to enable every coach to participate. Here are your available options.

There are two parts to this Coaches Training plan.

Step 1: Plan to Watch Online Video Training

All coaches will need to watch our online training videos before participating in a Coaches Clinic event. You will be emailed with instructions on how to access our online coaches training office that will allow you to watch training videos (we expect to have these videos online by the end of June). There will be 8-10 videos for you to watch based on your own time frame. You can watch them all at once or choose your own viewing times. They will range from 4-10 minutes each.

Step 2: Register NOW to Participate in a
Coaches Clinic in one of three ways

(you can register now before you watch the videos)

While our preferred option is for you to join a Coaches Clinic training event in person, we realize that for many of you this will not be possible this summer, so we have arranged several ways for you to complete this year’s training. Please make plans to choose by choosing from the three options that best suits you.

OPTION 1: 24 hour Retreat Event

$55 (includes one night and three meals)

While these are targeted at various regions, those that wish to travel and participate are certainly invited as we know how much fun our community has when we are together. There is no better way to build and know our community than meeting in person! (Next year we will have have more locations across the country to make it convenient for you to attend in person). In order to serve our community and the camps we are working with, your registrations for these events must be completed by the June 30th, but earlier is best!

Thank you for your commitment to investing in other youth leaders around the country, to improve your own coaching skills and also to being mentored yourself allows, which allows us to provide coaching with integrity and purpose.
