Coaching Resources

Coaching Requirements:
The Freedom seeks quality individuals who prioritize the values of fairness, respect, hard work, and responsibility. Freedom coaches seek to develop not only competitive teams, but strong players who understand how to play the game.

All prospective coaches interested in joining the Loudoun Freedom should submit a Coaches Application detailing their experience and coaching philosophy. The Loudoun Freedom does not discriminate on the basis of age, sex, ethnicity, race, or religion. Head coaches must be twenty-one (21) years of age. Assistant coaches must be at least sixteen (16) years of age.

Coaches are required to register with the Amateur Athletic Union(AAU) at AAU Sports as part of their application. This entails taking Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) courses as well.

Active Freedom coaches are required to take the NFHS Course on Concussions.

Whiile the Loudoun Freedom will provide Coaching Resources, coaches are encouraged to educate themselves - with the assistance of the Freedom organization - in the following topics:

  • Child Development
