About Coaching Education
Due to Eastern New York Youth Soccer Associations (ENYYSA) relationships and affiliations with both the U.S. Soccer (USSF) and the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), ENYYSA Coaching Education has the ability to offer an array of coaching licenses that are ideal for both parent coaches and professional trainers. The objective of our coaching licensing program is to provide all soccer coaches, from the beginner to the advanced, with up-to-date theoretical and practical knowledge. This will enable coaches to develop players to their fullest potential.
All of our talented and highly qualified instructional staff can deliver any of our USSF or NSCAA courses. All instructors hold National licenses and Diplomas and are considered experts in the delivery of coaching education courses.
Through our affiliation with the USSF ENYYSA can provide F (9 hours), E (18 hours) and D ( 55 hours) licenses.
For those coaches interested in obtaining higher level license we also are able to provide on an annual basis both a USSF C license ( 8 days) and the highly acclaimed US National Youth License( 5 days).
For those parent coaches who initially wish to learn some age appropriate coaching fundamentals along with many great practice ideas but have less hours to dedicate to the process we are also able to deliver NSCAA Junior level 1 through 6 diplomas. These diplomas range from 4 to 13 hours in duration.
In addition to the many licenses and diplomas listed above, ENYYSA also provides Recreational clinics of 2.5 hours duration. Each club affiliated with ENYYSA can apply to host one free recreational clinic each year. These clinics are designed to get the novice coach excited about their coaching education journey.
Our Director of Coaching Instruction is also available to provide a variety of lectures and presentations on any aspect of player development or coaching education and can be reached at Directorofcoachinginstruction@enysoccer.com
Most courses are available in Spanish and English. Please visit us on a continual basis to learn about updates pertaining to this opportunity.
