National Youth License and National "C" License course coming to Ohio South


Ohio South Youth Soccer Association, OSYSA, announced Thursday, that it will be hosing the National Youth License and the National "C" License this year for Coaches.  Details will be posted on the coaching page of the Ohio South website when available.

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

The role of the coach as a facilitator is explored; the physical, mental and emotional needs and capabilities of players from 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.

The National “C” License course is designed to introduce concepts that are targeted toward coaching players ages 11 – 14. The course focus is on getting coaches to think about, discuss, and recognize the recurring concepts or themes that exist in soccer. Candidates will be challenged to find ways to offer constructive guidance to players while also allowing players to experience the game for themselves.

A primary emphasis in the National “C” License course is the close relationship between technique and tactics. In this course, technique and tactics will be addressed together. In practice field sessions and the final field exam, the candidate is required to address the impact that technique has on tactics.

    You are continuing to bring to light, the "behind-the-scenes" relevance to the world's simplest sport. (not a derogatory comment, more a compliment). What's not to love about soccer?
