"I recently took a local clinic with OHTSL DOC Marcie Schwartz, as a spring refresher.  She was organized, prepared and did a great job of explaining, teaching and encouraging a large group of coaches on youth practice activities.  Having played soccer at The College of Wooster and coached club soccer in both Ohio and California, I can tell you that these clinics are worthwhile and something that can add value to your took kit."

"Marcie was a great teacher for our clinic.  She kept everyone's interest with her knowledge and great enthusiasm.  Her attitude was great and her love for the game was very apparent.  Walking away from this class made me excited to learn more and become a better coach.  Hoping to learn more from her in the future."

Coaching Education Reimbursement


As a reminder from the July 2018 Bracketing Meeting, the OHTSL has begun a new coaching education reimbursement program. Based on the number of teams registered in the league (boys and girls) the OHTSL will allot each community a certain number of coaches reimbursement, of up to $150.00 (cost of a D License) for a coaching education course.

If a community has 1-5 teams= 2 coaches
If a community has 6-10 teams= 3 coaches
If a community has 11-15 teams= 4 coaches
If a community has 16 teams= 5 coaches

Once the course has been completed please have the coach fill out the attached form, (which can also be found at under the info-->procedures section-->click on "Coach's education reimbursement form") and email me to OHTSL DOC Marcie Schwartz at for reimbursement. The form must be submitted within in the same fiscal year the course was taken, the OHTSL fiscal year runs from August 1-July 31
