Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association will host C coaching courses in the Capital District and on Long Island this summer.

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:


“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 Tim Bradbury said. “The C is the foundation of all high-level licenses and is full of vital teaching strategies and game concepts.“

This C course and first-class curriculum 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 principles of play with field sessions. There is both an instruction/development period and an assessment period.
