Phil Johnson, longtime coach of the Stillwater Boys High School program, will be honored at the 2012 Gala For Goals.  Coach Johnson has lead the Stillwater boys to multiple MSHSL championships and his contributions at the youth level are equally impressive, as he continues to serve as a clinician for MYSA youth and coaching programs.  Congratulations Phil!

Congratulations Tony Englund

The Master Coach Certificate is considered to be the pinnacle of coaching education for the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, the largest-single sport coaches association in the world.  Candidates complete a week of intensive, elite-level training and subsequent distance learning with MLS and other high-level coaches before embarking on a six-month major project that includes a visit to an elite soccer environment.  Candidates submit and defend to a jury their projects at the annual NSCAA convention.
Sporting St. Croix Assistant Director of Coaching Tony Englund completed the Master Coach Certificate in January.  His project involved creating a written curriculum book for the club on the topic of goalkeeper training.  Coach Englund spent four days consulting with John Pascarella, Assistant Coach at Sporting Kansas City before writing the book, which the club has now distributed to team coaches and goalkeeper trainers.  The book, which Englund and Pascarella will co-author, is now slated to be published in expanded form by Meyer & Meyer in 2017.
The NSCAA announced this year the creation of a new honor, the Jeff Tipping Award, to be given to the outstanding graduate of each Master Coach Certificate cohort.  Tony Englund was recognized at the graduation ceremony as the first Tipping Award winner.
