Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association will host a “C” coaching course this summer and fall.

The course will take place at the Masters School at 49 Clinton Ave. in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.

The course will be in two phases, from July 29 to Aug. 5 and from Nov. 16 to 18. The summer phase is the development period and the fall is for assessment. Candidates need to attend both phases. The registration fee is $1,950.

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

This “C” course is designed for coaches working with players ages 14 and up. The course encompasses the various tasks of the coach, including 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.

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
