NSCAA Courses

 
 

New Youth Coaching Certification Standards set by WYSL

 

 

Following on from the great success of the NSCAA Level 1 course role out across the region last season, the WYSL is again leading the way in youth soccer coaching education by increasing the minimum coaching level requirement for all new coaches to the NSCAA level 2 certification.

 

The league believes that the Level 2 course is more geared towards the mainstay of what travel coaches require as a base level of knowledge to impart to the players under their tutelage.

 

 

 

 
 

 

NSCAA Level 2 details:

 

 

 

  • Course will comprise of 6 hours of education, both classroom and field.
  • The course will encompass 8 learning outcomes:
     
  1. Session Structure & Organization
  2. Safety & Risk Management
  3. Repetition - the key to technical mastery and forming positive habits
  4. Progressions - how to challenge your players appropriately
  5. Role & Traits of a youth soccer coach
  6. Coaching Philosophy
  7. Coaching children - age consideration
  8. Differentiation
  • Course cost = $95

WYSL will also host higher level NSCAA certification courses (Levels 3-6) for those coaches who would like to continue their coaching education, and this is something recommended for coaches who have older teams that play in 11v11 format.

 

The league is securing multiple locations on multiple dates to allow all coaches easy access to take the Level 2 course and improve themselves as a youth soccer coach and mentor.

The course dates and locations will be conveyed jointly to all clubs/coaches through the WYSL and New York Red Bulls.

 

Another option for coaches to be certified, is to have their WYSL member club host a course. If your club would like to host a NSCAA course, please reach out to Grant.Findlay@NewYorkRedBulls.com
