TTi Soccer at STYSA Grass Roots Coaching Event

September 9th 2019

This past weekend Lee Cullip, TTi Sporting Director travelled to Onion Creek Soccer Complex in Austin, TX to participate in STYSA’s Grass Roots event.

The course was based around Game Day management for youth players and delved into coaching within the game. The STYSA course was sponsored by Austin FC, the MLS expansion team. All participants received a t-shirt, bag and information packet.

The course was run by Sam Snow (Pictured above with Lee Cullip, TTi Sporting Director), former USYS Coaching Director. His intuitive understanding and experience garnered much for the coaches to learn in a short, bespoke course. The points revolved around controllable and the uncontrollable of the game day process.

“I think that had I known Sam was going to be here I would have attended just to be in touch!” Said Cullip of the trip “combined with the other staff, including Jene it made the course well worthwhile. The understanding of the roll of the youth coach and information were exception and well thought out. I look forward to attending the next events the are available and would recommend them to coaches at all levels” Cullip concluded.

STYSA hosts several events over the course of the year. You can find out more about STYSA events here at:
