2016 MFCA COACHES CLINIC

The annual MFCA coaches’ clinic will again be held in Auburn, at the Hilton Garden Inn. The clinic will take place the weekend of March 18-19. Last year we had another outstanding turnout with many youth and young coaches attending for the first time. We want this year’s clinic to be even larger with many new faces and as always all the hard cores! We will be sending out the clinic schedule March 2nd or 3rd.  We ask you to forward the dates and times along to your assistants and all youth coaches in your program. The registration cost will be the same -$125 per staff or $35 per individual coach, Please mail your Registration form to Mike Haley:

YOU CAN ALSO REGISTER AT THE DOOR.

 This clinic is open to all levels – youth, high school and college level coaches and we strongly encourage you all to bring all of your assistants as we need to develop more young coaches in the state. This year, we will again devote one room to “FUNDAMENTALS and TECHNIQUES” as it was such a positive addition last year. There will be no scheme talk here and this is designed for the young coaches and youth coaches to promote their growth and development.

 Joe Harasymiak the new Head Coach at the University of Maine and his staff will again be presenting this year with some great positional technique talks. All of the Div. 3 colleges will be represented, Bates, Bowdoin, Colby, Husson, MMA and UNE. Maine High school coaches will be represented. We will also have coaches speaking from Springfield College, RPI, Trinity College and Dartmouth College. Joe Harasymiak will address the entire clinic on Friday night at 9:00 followed by the MFCA business meeting, Coach of the year awards and the always popular “Mike Haley” Social….. There will be 24 presentations over the 2 days; registration begins at 3:15 on Friday with the first presentations at 4:00. We will have 3 speakers going from 4:00 to 9:00 on Friday and 9:00am to 12:00 on Saturday. Please do your best to get there early and get signed in. We have also increased the number of vendors who will be at the clinic with a wide range of equipment, uniform and fundraising needs.

This is a great chance to learn from some of the top coaches in Maine, talk some football with fellow coaches and support Maine HS Football.
