Washington Spirit Inaugural Coaching Mentorship Program

We are pleased to announce the Washington Spirit Coaching Mentorship Program.

The newly created program will be highly personalized for each mentor/mentee pair and will mix in-person hands-on experience with hybrid mentorship throughout the year. The mentor/mentee will work together to create a unique process that works for their individual interests and needs. On an elevated level, mentees can expect to develop a broad understanding of soccer-specific tactics, learn about technologies that are revolutionizing the game, gain insight into performance and strength & conditioning methodologies, learn and work through opponent analysis, and game preparation. Those selected will be partnered with a Spirit coach as a mentor from August 2023 – July 2024 and will receive approximately 150 hours of mentorship.

The four coach mentors who will participate in the inaugural program are Assistant Coach Angela Salem, Assistant Coach/Player Development Coach Mami Yamaguchi, Player Development Coach Moriano Imaizumi, and Assistant Coach/Director of Player Development Mike Bristol.

To apply for the inaugural cohort of mentees, interested coaches will need to:

  1. Submit a full resume
  2. Provide three references
  3. Explain their coaching interests and goals.

Please use the link below to submit all materials by August 8, 2023. If you have any additional questions, please contact mentorship@washspirit.com.
