NSCAA National Diploma to be held at Clay County Soccer Fields in Eagle Harbor, Fleming Island January 23-25 and January 30-February 1. THIS COURSE MEETS THE FYSA REQUIREMENTS TO COACH AT THE 2015 FYSA STATE CUP. The National Diploma is a 45-hour course designed to meet the needs of the more experienced coach, particularly those coaching at the high school level and above, or youth coaches with previous certification and a number of years working with the developing player. It is strongly recommended that candidates complete the NSCAA Level 6 Diploma or USSF "D" license prior to the course. The overall objective of the National Diploma is to acquaint the coach with the needs of the soccer player and provide an organized and progressive methodology of coaching those needs. Basic technical and tactical knowledge is the central theme of the course in a 6 vs. 6 model. The course includes sessions on the teaching process, psychological skills training and Laws of the Game. Participants receive a curriculum that outlines the course content and includes valuable resource material. Testing includes oral, written and practical (coaching) evaluations. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. For more information and to register, go to http://www.nscaa.com/education/courses/national. Contact Matt Hollyoak at if you have any questions.
