Wednesday, January 6th, 2021 - It was another banner year for coaching education at the Arizona Soccer Association as more than 300 coaches were awarded licenses in 2020.
At the beginning of 2019, the ASA made coaching education a top priority, and this year's number builds upon last year's 270 coaching licenses.

ASA also wants to thank all of our member clubs who helped host these classes.
