CSA to Host National Youth License
July 26-30, 2014
Colorado Soccer will host a National Youth License (NYL) this coming summer, July 26-30th. The National Youth license is designed to provide club directors, youth coaches, physical education teachers, and soccer administrators with the knowledge to successfully structure soccer environments for children aged 4-12. The NYL is offered as a cooperative effort of both US Soccer and US Youth Soccer.
The role of the coach as a facilitator is explored; the physical, mental and the emotional needs and capabilities of players 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.
“Two years ago I attended the National Youth License hosted by CSA and it was a very informative and rewarding experience. In fact it was one of the best coaching courses I have attended. It gave me confidence to work with the young players, which I feel is our most important coaching challenge in this country”. Mike Freitag, CSA Director of Coaching
