National “C” License a Hit With Coaches
In March, Starfire Sports in Tukwila hosted a National “C” License course for Washington Youth Soccer coaches, 32 of whom took advantage of the chance to improve their understanding of the game.
Targeted primarily to coaches of the U11-U14 age groups, a major emphasis in the National "C" License course is the close relationship between technique and tactics. Coaches were challenged to find ways to offer constructive guidance to players while also allowing players to experience the game for themselves. The National "C" License course also provides a foundation for any coach wishing to pursue higher levels within U.S. Soccer’s Coaching Education Program.
Held over two weekends in March, the course was a big success! The Washington Youth Soccer Coaching Education team would like to extend a big thank you to each of the coaches who participated, along with the talented instructors from around the country.
Don’t just take our word for it, though — check out this interview to learn more about the “’C” License, from the coaches themselves!
