2020 WRCRA Conference Attendees: if you're interested in attending, you can officially sign up in person at the conference even if you did not initially indicate interest in the clinic on your conference registration form.
* WRCRA is proud to provide space for the coaching clinic, however the clinic is not part of the WRCRA Conference. Cost is a suggested donation of $25 to the USWNT 15s Program, which can be paid onsite.
**Information on the Regional Training Program: The Regional Training Program is a two-fold supportive process, consisting of both Regional Training Centers and Regional Training Weekends. Centers are strategically placed at seven locations across the United States in areas where a high concentration of National Team pool players reside. There, coaches and athletes meet for concentrated group session for a set number of hours during preseason to work on individual areas and development of core skills under pressure. All players within the tiered pool structure, including age-grade athletes, attend sessions at Regional Training Centers.
