May 2017 Announcements

My students are my best coaches, they learned through the struggle of the experience of being on the journey themselves, so that when they teach someone else, I know they have truly learned.

Senior Practicum & Foundation Coach Course

We’ve begun to expand our One on One Coaching to licensed coaches that have completed their Senior Practicum and a Foundation Course. These students have learned the value of LeftFoot in their lives and have put in over 40 hours of practicum experience on the field with their Master Coach to begin offering One on One Foundation Series Coaching to players U9-U14 for FootSkills. Senior Practicum students are 16 years of age, have over 90 hours of LeftFoot Coaching Academy experience, have mastery of the Foundation Series and Combination Series skills and are enrolled in a minimum of 10 hours of Senior Academy Coaching per year.

Learn from the one who taught me

Over the years coaches and families have commented to me about how I can weave a session together, motivate a group and inspire the entire academy in a session. The woman I learned from is offering what I learned from her, to interested individuals and organizations, as part of the Matrix Leadership Institute.  The Essential 4-day training experience is a profound life-changing and eye-opening process. She’s to me what I am to a lot of students through the years. Amina will be in Minnetonka for a special event May 31st- June 4th. If you lead groups, consult, train or facilitate you may want to explore Matrix Leadership Institute.
