National Youth Coaching Course
Watch this page for information on future NYCC
The National Youth Coaching Course, a USYS Soccer course, focuses upon the nature of children and the adjustments adults must make to coach them. The course curriculum covers the ages of 4-12 years old. Each day of the course, the focus is upon one of the traditional soccer age groups of U6, U8, U10 or U12.
Children of the appropriate age group are brought to the course site and are placed in a model training environment with the coaches in attendance. The candidates are videotaped while coaching the players and the video is reviewed with each candidate to aid in the education of the coach. The course combines both classroom (theory) and field (practical) sessions. The course concludes with written, oral and practical examinations.
The National Youth Coaching Course is five days in length. It is ideal for anyone hoping to become a better and more effective coach.
