The Coaching Manual - Northwest United's Official Coaching Partner

Northwest United Soccer Club is delighted to announce an exciting partnership with digital soccer platform, The Coaching Manual; the global leaders in providing expertly curated and accessible soccer coaching material to players, coaches, and parents involved with the game of soccer.


The Coaching Manual’s innovative platform has been adopted by a host of organizations, clubs (including a number of leading Premier League clubs) and state associations. Through this relationship all of our club coaches will be able to access this interactive, digital platform for support in understanding, interpreting and delivering coaching sessions that have been developed alongside world-renowned soccer academies.


This clearly demonstrates Northwest United Soccer Club’s commitment to coach and player education, as we align ourselves with the US Soccer Federations mission statement of making soccer, in all its forms, a preeminent sport in the United States and to continue the development of soccer at all levels.


Kristian Powell, Northwest United FC Director of Coaching said:


" We are always looking to further our coaches education here at Northwest United and add valuable resources and tools for our coaching staff. This in turn will greatly benefit our players with the game ever evolving.  When The Coaching Manual approached us, I was massively impressed with the content  that the Coaching Manual provides and will greatly add to the club curriculum, training methods and season planning we have in place already.  It's a privilege to partner with great coaches and students of the game such as Paul and his staff . They have a wealth of knowledge in the game and can help us further transfer that to our teams and players. Many of the sessions come directly from top English clubs, including well known academies such as Southampton FC, who are known for there pedigree for creating higher level players"


Technical Director for The Coaching Manual, Paul Bright, added “Having known Kristian for over 10 years and been in the dressing room with him as players I was aware that Kristian was a progressive and forward thinking practitioner who always has the best interests of the players first. Northwest United clearly recognizes that ongoing coach education is a necessity in Washington State in order for their players to receive age and ability-appropriate training and coaching points as they develop in the game, and we are pleased they have selected to partner with The Coaching Manual.”


We are very much looking forward to seeing the positive impact that this partnership with The Coaching Manual will have on our players, coaches and parents throughout Northwest United.
