We are part of Tampa Soccer Alliance which includes Florida Soccer Club and FC Tampa. When this was formed over a year ago we formed a partnership with the professional club Rangers FC from Glasgow and we are one of the US Affiliates. What that means is we have access to send players and coaches over to Glasgow training and tournaments and in return they will send Coaches to us. Well, that time has come and we have scheduled an event specifically for you the coaches and our players.  Its really important everyone participate and show support for this weekend event. The goal is to learn from the professional coaches technics that can be applied in our weekly training sessions. This is a FREE event sponsored by the Alliance so take advantage.  Attached is a promo flyer. Share it with your players, assistant coaches and team managers.  We want all clubs under the Alliance to travel to each of the sessions. Below is an outline of the weekend events.  Friday night is for coaches only, training sessions is for coaches and players.  If any questions let me know and please start spreading the word this week.
