Coach Training Requirements for South End Soccer (SES)
*** UPDATE AUGUST 8, 2020: ADDITIONAL TRAINING REQUIREMENTS TO BE SENT BY DIRECTOR OF COACH REGARDING RETURN TO PLAY AND COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS ***
Whether you’ve coached before or are a first time coach, there’s still plenty to learn. US Soccer training sessions give you, the coach, the tools to develop players to their fullest potential and create an environment of education, hard work and fun! See below on how to complete trainings and find more resources.
Mass Youth Soccer has created lesson plans and other useful resources to make your practice sessions fun! Session Plans are organized by Player Age Groups and by Training Themes. Each Practice Plan is designed specifically to be age appropriate. Age groups are designated in even years (i.e. U6, U8, U10, etc.) but the sessions are also appropriate for the odd year preceding the age group listed (e.g. U6 practice plans are appropriate for U5 players). If you believe that your players need more or less challenge, feel free to try Practice Plans in an older or younger age group.
