Former English soccer star will conduct coaching symposium on March 28

Former English soccer star Steve Heighway will conduct a coaching symposium for area coaches at Georgia Southern University on Wednesday, March 28.

Heighway played for the Liverpool Football Club during the 1970s. He is now the director of the Liverpool Academy, a state-of-the-art training facility that provides instruction to some of the most talented young players in England.

The symposium at Georgia Southern will feature two separate clinics:

  • University Team Clinic- Heighway will give a demonstration of coaching at the collegiate and elite levels from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the Georgia Southern soccer stadium. He will spend an hour with the men’s team and an hour with the women’s team. Due to NCAA rules, this clinic is for observation only.
  • Coaching Education Clinic – Heighway will give a demonstration of coaching at the high school and select player levels from 7:30 p.m. until 8:45 p.m. at Paulson Stadium. During this session, he will interact with coaches and answers questions regarding coaching and player development.

In the event of rain, both clinics will be conducted in Hanner Fieldhouse.

There is no fee for either clinic, but space is limited, and advance registration is required. Any coach who does not register in advance may not be admitted. The general public will be allowed to watch both of the clinics from the bleachers.
