"F" Course A New, Valuable Resource for Coaches at Youngest Age Groups
by James Charette
Washington Youth Soccer hosted a Coach Development Workshop in November for state educational instructors and club technical directors. The workshop emphasized lesson plan development and provided U.S. Soccer National Coaching School updates.
This workshop also provided an opportunity to develop mentors. As pre-course requirements include candidate practice sessions, it is important that we train mentors to support coach development in their respective communities. A mentors list will be posted on the Washington Youth Soccer website in January.
Better prepared 5-8 year old coach = more fun!
“F” License course content:
We are developing the Coaching License Schedule for 2015. If your District, Association or Club is interested in hosting an “F” (field component), “E” or “D” License, contact Bastien Catrin at BastienC@Washingtonyouthsoccer.org.
Coaching Education does not stop at the conclusion of a course. Rather, this is the beginning; we want to provide continued coaching education support throughout your coaching lifecycle. If there are any services that we can provide to support your continued learning at all levels, please let us know.
If you have any questions regarding U.S. Soccer coaching licensing or supporting your coach development, please do not hesitate to contact the Washington Youth Soccer Coaching Education Department.
