Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association will host a National C coaching course this summer.

The course will run from July 28 to Aug. 4 at World Class FC at 175 Old Orangeburg Road in Orangeburg, N.Y.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old, be currently coaching and have held a National D License for a minimum of one year or meet the waiver guidelines found here: http://www.ussoccer.com/coaching-education/licenses/national-c#Waiver

“This is a great course that is a vital stepping stone for those that wish to move onto the B and A courses,” ENYYSA director of coaching instruction Tim Bradbury said. “The C is the foundation of all high-level licenses and is full of vital teaching strategies and game concepts.“

The course and curriculum is designed for coaches working with players ages 14 and older. It encompasses the various coaching tasks, which includes training sessions, coaching games, leading players, leading the teams and managing a performance environment plus vital theory sessions on periodization and principles of play with field sessions.

The cost is $1,800.

There also will be an assessment period from Nov. 17-19, also in Orangeburg.
