Whether you are a Player, Coach or Director, you are always looking to grow, learn and develop.  IMPACT Director of Coaching Tom Ginocchio will be in Holland and Germany from December 8th - 19th, studying at soccer clubs with other Directors from Northern California.  The group of 18 will start in Holland studying at Ajax, AZ Alkmaar and Vitesse, prior to heading to Germany to study at Bayer Leverkusen.  


The group will be led by former Dutch National Team, Bayern Munich and Manchester United Asst. Coach Franz Hoek.  The group will be studying club culture, club philosophies, and player development while seeing many training sessions, youth and professional games.      


This is Tom's third time studying club soccer in Europe.  IMPACT Coaches Lance Welker and Duane Glinton have also attended this Director's course in the past.  


"It is a great opportunity to learn and grow as both a Coach and Director of Coaching, and I look forward to bringing what I learn back to IMPACT SC."


NorCal Premier Soccer will be posting updates on their social media pages. You can follow Tom and the group on their journey at:
