USSF National Youth License (NYL)

Tennessee State Soccer Association is hosting the USSF & USYS NYL License Course in August 2014 in Chattanooga, TN.  The course capacity is limited so register now!

The National Youth License is designed to provide club directors of coaching, youth coaches, and soccer administrators with the knowledge to successfully structure soccer environments for children ages 4-12.

The following will be explored: The role of the facilitator and the role of the coach; the physical, mental and emotional needs and capabilities of players from 4-12; lessons from developmental psychology; and the art of teaching.  Candidates are videotaped for analysis during live training sessions and those who wish to serve as state and local Youth Module Instructors are certified within this course.  It is also a great opportunity for an “A” licensed coach to receive 8 CEU’s upon successful completion of the course.
