Director of Technical Training & Camps, Fred Owusu Sekyere was recently earned his U.S. Soccer National “B” Coaching License. The Richmond Kickers Program Director has spent the last six months working toward the successful completion of the course.
Owusu concluded, “I learned a lot of important coaching concepts during this course. The “B” license course has already been helpful to me, as I’ve started to implement various lessons from the course during training sessions and games. I know I will continue to utilize the skills gained from the course in future coaching. I am grateful for the support I received from the Kickers organization including coaches, parents, and players, as well as the course instructors during this process. I am prepared to continue my professional development and look forward to working towards my “A” license.”
