National Youth Coaching Course 20 years old

Jacob Daniel- State DOC

The National Youth Coaching Course is 20 years old.  This unique course was created by US Soccer and US Youth Soccer to fill the gap that existed in the then national coaching school educational pathway.  The existing courses focused on teaching the coaches how to read the game, tactically, strategically, and technically,  But there were no courses dedicated to teaching the coaches how to read the players, psychologically, emotionally, developmentally, and ability-wise.  This educational void was addressed by the National Youth Coaching Course.  It teaches coaches how to work with players, understand what makes them tick, and what makes then quit.  It is a truly unique course that every coach working with 4-12 year-old should take.  This summer, Georgia Soccer is hosting this course in Atlanta in the first two weekends of August.  check out our web site for more details.
