The Coaching Manual is pleased to announce a partnership with the Arkansas Soccer Association, enabling the delivery of professional education to thousands of coaches across the state.
Arkansas Soccer Association currently has registered approximately 19,000+ youth and adult members from across Arkansas. ASA's member clubs field more than 1,600 teams each year.
The ASA's Executive Director, Jim Walker, said: "Having personally been a member of The Coaching Manual for several years, I've seen the value their platform brings to the coaching community, regardless of the age and skill level of the players being trained.
"ASA is extremely excited to offer TCM's platform to the DOCs of our member clubs, as we believe this will be hugely beneficial to them with respect to coordinating club level training plans to pass along to all of the coaches within their club, benefitting both recreational and classic/competitive players at all ages."
ASA member clubs organize and operate their own programs, drawing on a large volunteer base of coaches and program administrators. Each association has a set of bylaws to operate by, which are submitted when applying to become a member of ASA, with each local association having its own Board of Directors.
Clubs will be able to develop and communicate curriculums using The Coaching Manual's library of professional sessions created and curated by experts in youth development, as well as the platform's suit of market-leading organisational and content-creation tools.

Programs can consist of sessions designed by top pro coaches like David Moyes, René Meulensteen, and UEFA Pro Licence tutor Martin Hunter; sessions created by in-house coaches using intuitive drag-and-drop tools - or a combination of both. Whatever objectives or philosophies clubs want to work towards, The Coaching Manual has them covered at any age level.
The Coaching Manual's Chris Barton said: "I'm proud to be able to welcome on board the Arkansas Soccer Association. Partnering with associations like the ASA is really important for us to be able to reach coaches across the state and provide access to a platform designed by experts in youth development in order to make their lives easier. We're looking forward to working with the ASA and its member clubs, helping them to deliver their curriculums to thousands of players every week."
