Before the beginning of each season, KYSC
offers US Soccer Federation (USSF)
coaching clinics in conjunction with STYSA. These are licensing
clinics and are referred to as “Youth Modules”.
Completion of a Youth Module is required within one year of
your KYSC coaching start date.
clinics are especially helpful to coaches wanting to become
more familiar with the game of soccer and are seeking assistance
in preparing practice plans. Coaches and assistant coaches
new to either KYSC or the game of soccer are strongly encouraged
coaches are invited to participate if space is available. Coaches
who are experienced players themselves will find the clinics
very educational in learning how to make the transition from
“playing” the game of soccer to “teaching”
the game of soccer.
clinics are divided into two sessions consisting of classroom
instruction and field work.
covered in the clinic include the following:
Age-appropriate coaching philosophy
Rules of the Game
Sample practice plans
are encouraged to bring a soccer ball and water bottle to the
field session. It
is suggested that you bring a snack to eat between the classroom
and field sessions. Come dressed to participate in the sample
drills; shin guards are recommended.
