SCYSC Coaching Education Program
What is the SCYSC Coaching Education Program?
The Coaching Education Program provides a framework for South County Youth Soccer Club to ensure all coaches working with players in the Junior (8 and Under), Blue (12 and Under) and Gold (13 and Older) receive adequate support, guidance and training to perform the coaching roles competently.
Why a coaching education program?
Because SCYSC cares about the Children and the Coaches.
First and foremost, our duty to our Members is to provide a positive and safe learning environment or the children. Secondly, we care for the individuals charged with providing that positive learning environment – our coaches. As an entry-level sport, soccer can be the first organized sports experience for a child. One cannot underestimate or take lightly the potential impact a coach can have on a child’s long term sports participation. Simply, there is too much at stake for SCYSC not to take our responsibilities seriously.
Who is invited to participate in the SCYSC Coaching Education Program?
SCYSC is a volunteer organization. If you are willing to commit to education, we would be delighted for you to join our team of coaches. Playing and previous coaching experience is helpful, but dedication to become a better educator and teaching children is essential. An online coaching application form will soon be available: www.scysc.org/coaches
What are the main pillars of the program?
The philosophies of the program can be summarized in three words: Education, Dedication, Performance:
