The Virginia Legacy would like to congratulate two of its coaches/staff on recently completing the 6 day US Soccer National Youth Coaching License!
The National Youth Coaching Course 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.
Assistant Youth Programs Director Kendal Pressey and 08 CCL Boys Coach Phil Geyer completed the course over 2 weekends in the Fredericksburg area last month. "Getting a chance to learn about the best practices for young players and the future of the club was super valuable. I am excited to be able to bring back all that I learned from the US Coaching Staff and my coaching colleagues to our Legacy programs and further enhance the environment the kids are playing in." - Kendal Pressey
Congratulations again Phil and Kendal on your committment to the game of soccer and being the best coach you can be for the kids of Virginia Legacy!
