Coaching Clinics


Consistent with our mission…

  • To provide a program that will offer free coaching education support that is unmatched in our region.  This support will be designed specifically to accommodate the needs of volunteer recreational coaches across all of the communities in northern Cincinnati.
  • To cultivate relationships with organizations that share a vision of partnership, which will prepare their coaches with all of the resources they need to coach recreational teams.

Cincinnati United will offer free coaching clinics open to all coaches within Cincinnati United and our Recreational Partners. These clinics are designed primarily for recreational coaches unless otherwise noted, although the information can be applied to all players, regardless of ability. Please check the Recreational Outreach News and Events page for a list of clinics for the upcoming season.
