National Youth License Module - General Certificate
SCYSA offers three levels of Youth Module courses for beginner coaches. In addition to the three Youth Module courses Leve1 U6-U8, Level II U8-U10 and Level III U10-U12, a General Certificate course is offered to assist the beginner youth soccer coach. This is a three-hour course in duration that covers topics such as the Art of Coaching, Learning through Game Activities, Successful Player Development, Philosophy of Coaching, and the use of Small Sided Games. With the implementation of mandatory coaching education this coarse will not only assist the beginner coach but will meet the minimum coaching requirements for these age groups.
