US Youth Soccer Coaching Course: Cost = $650.00
June 22nd to 26th at Legacy Center, Brighton MI

The National Youth Coaching Courses focuses upon the nature of children and the adjustments adults must make to coach them. The course curriculum covers the ages of 4-12 year olds.  Each day of the course the role of the coach as a facilitator is explored; the physical, mental and emotional needs and capabilities of players from 4-12 are explored; the lessons from developmental psychology are explored; and the art of teaching is explored.  Candidates are videotaped for analysis during live training sessions.  The course combines both classroom (theory) and field (practical) sessions and concludes with written, oral and practical examinations. It is ideal for anyone hoping to become a better and more effective coach.  The National Youth Course is administered and instructed by U.S. Youth Soccer.
