Academy Coaching

Coaching Overview

All Academy teams practice at least twice per week and will be trained by professional club coaches to provide the players with the best foundation of skills, abilities, and knowledge of the game. Licensed coaches follow a set curriculum, ensuring all Academy players are exposed to the same learning opportunities. During the majority of the season, optional third practices are available for qualifying players, and they are encouraged to attend these additional sessions. Players are also encouraged and expected to continue their training outside of practice sessions and games.

Coaching Requirements
If you are interested in becoming an Academy coach please review the following requirements:
  • Background Check that returns clean.
  • Available to coach weekly practice sessions.
  • Available to coach games on Saturdays and Sundays.
  • Able to communicate weekly to team.
  • Follow Inter Atlanta Code of Conduct and Behavior Policy at all times.

Team Meetings

Shortly before the start of the season (and once per month), the coach and manager typically organize a team meeting for parents. This is a great time to get everyone together, for the coach to discuss rules, expectations, and then in-season updates. The monthly meetings are required by IAFC, for the coaches to discuss the state of the team and any issues and events forthcoming.
