National Youth License
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 NYCC 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
