Register Now For These Important Coaching CoursesUpdated Thursday December 12, 2013 by Amherst Youth Soccer Association.
Amherst Youth Soccer Association will be hosting a pair of coaching courses targeted at the our in-house and youth coaching courses. The courses are developed by Ohio Youth Soccer Assocation North, in conjunction with United States Youth Soccer.
You can find out more information regarding these available courses below!
U6/U8 Course(Wednesday, April 2) - The U-6/8 Course explains and demonstrates how to organize child-centered soccer programs for very young children and includes many examples of age-appropriate soccer-related activities. This course is targeted at our Youth Academy coaches(Pee-Wee, U5, U6 and U7)
U10/U12 Course(Friday, April 4 - Saturday April 5) - The U10/12 Course is a fourteen hour course designed for Travel Level coaches working with players competing in the 6v6 (U9/10), 8v8 (U11/12), and 11v11 (U13/14) formats. Coaching players between the ages of nine and twelve is arguably the most critical period for long-term player development and the technical foundation for later tactical understanding is either successfully established, or irretrievably lost, during this stage.
The U10/12 Course consists of on-field practical information (11 hours) and the self-paced, online Novice Coach Course (~3 hours), which, together, present ideas on teaching the technical, tactical, psychological and physical elements of soccer games ranging from 1v1 to 8v8. Technical skills, including goalkeeper skills, are broken down in depth, as are small-group tactics and game management relevant to 6v6 and 8v8 coaching. Soccer fitness is presented as a by-product of active play.
Fundamentally, the U10/12 Course strives to demonstrate how soccer “skill” (the application of technique under pressure) can be developed by playing soccer in a variety of game forms; and by utilizing a variety of simple conditions and scoring systems to promote learning. This course targets our travel coaches in the U8, U9, U10, U11 and U12 age groups.
While there is a cost associated with both courses, AYSA will reimburse coaches that successfully complete the course.
