REGION IV Workshop Coaching
By Shannon Murray,
Washington Youth Soccer Director of Coaching Education
After recently attending the Region IV Workshop in Salt Lake City, the following updates in regards to Coaching Education were discussed:
Future Teaching Tools
U.S. Soccer is exploring the implementation of an e-platform that will help further the connection of U.S. Soccer to all levels of our nation’s coaches. This will be able to increase the impact of our courses and teaching past the content level and more into the competency level.
The “F” license launch is targeted for the spring of 2014 and updates to the curriculums of the new “E” and “D” licenses were recently launched. Those updates will be officially announced in January of 2014 by U.S. Soccer, and will be communicated both here and on the Coaches page at WashingtonYouthSoccer.org.
Development of a Technical Director's Course
The pilot program for a Technical Director’s Course is currently in progress. The announcement of the official course due by the end of the 2014 calendar year.
