Amherstburg Minor Soccer Association will hold a coaches and referee clinic this Sunday at the Libro Center between 12- 3 p.m.

President Terry Sawchuk says, “ This is the first step in letting everyone in on the changes for this upcoming soccer season.”

The coaches will meet in the upstairs classroom at 12 noon and later will do some on field training in the indoor field.  Also we will have Ryan Mendonca, the coaching coordinator of Essex County Soccer Association, to talk about changes being implemented in soccer across Canada and tips on how the make the game more fun. Ryan also coaches for the University of Windsor. All coaches and assistants that are registered are asked to attend this clinic.

From 1-3 p.m. all referees will be doing a refresher for the upcoming season. Referee coordinator David Melo says, “Our officials are a big part of our game, and providing them as much training as possible makes for a more enjoyable game.”

They are meeting in the upstairs classroom at 1 p.m. and then will move to the indoor field to practice what has been covered.

There is still room to volunteer! If you are interested in coaching or officiating for this upcoming soccer season, go to and register as a volunteer and come out to the clinics this Sunday.

With having such a great local facility like the Libro Center, these clinics are more realistic with having access to an indoor field to work in.

“Coaches and officials need to bring proper training gear as there will be sessions and on-field work,” says Sawchuk.

Amherstburg Minor Soccer Association looks forward to seeing everyone on Sunday.
