The National Youth Coaching Course, a US Youth 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, and each day of the course focuses on one of the traditional soccer age groups of U6, U8, U10 or U12. Each day, children of the appropriate age group are brought to the course site so the candidates can work with them in a practice training session. The candidates are videotaped while coaching the kids 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 36-hour course is only $600 for both weekends. If you register by May 31st, the cost is only $500.
The course will be over two weekends Aug 12-14, 2016 and Aug 19-21, 2016 in Little Rock, AR. The field sessions will be at Burns Park in North Little Rock, AR and the lectures will be at the host hotel:
