Every year East Select Soccer seeks out the highest level local coaches in the area. These coaches will coach and assist our professional coaches in guiding the teams in individual skill development as well as team development. We would like to thank these coaches in advance for their dedication and work that they will be doing this year. We have a fantastic group of coaches that will continue the growth of soccer in Duluth.
