We are so excited to share who she is as a coach and where she started on her path. Lindsay has had an incredible impact on the game over her years of involvement. She is an inspiration and an outstanding role model for the younger generation interested in coaching one day, especially girls and younger women.

Article of the Month: Continuous Education with ODP
In conjunction with the Kentucky Olympic Development Program (ODP) sessions on December 14th, Kentucky Youth Soccer’s Director of Education, Adrian Parrish, ran a pilot coaching event for a small group of coaches from local clubs. The coaches attending this event had the opportunity to observe training sessions with the 2006 and 2007 ODP state pools. “After evaluating coaches during a recent national coaching license performance center, we wanted to offer an event for our local club coaches. We noticed a need for offering insight to higher caliber activities so coaches can better understand the relationships and actions of players on the field,” said Parrish.
