Coaching 101

Coaching 101 is a 90 minute course designed to introduce the parent coach to coaching youth soccer.  Coaches will leave with resources in hand to utilize right away in their practices.  Content is flexible and based on the audience and need.  This course is offered in an interactive classroom 
setting.  Field/gym time is optional.  Practical demonstration can/will be provided through the use of video technology.  Topics will cover how to deal with children in a team environment, best practices for player development, how to structure a practice, team management, basic laws of the game, etc.  We will provide the “starter” coach with the needed resources and confidence to successfully conduct simple, fun and age appropriate training activities with their teams.

There will be no charge for a club's intial enrollment in this course.  Clubs interested in hosting a Coaching 101 class should contact Assistant Technical Director, Scott Craig at scraig@nyswysa.org
