Coaching Education


The presentation of the U.S. Soccer coaching curriculum is another major step in the implementation of the framework developed by the Player Development Task Force, which was created in 2006 to review all aspects of player development in the United States and recommend a course of action. (US Soccer)

KSC is privileged to host a series of coaching courses at the KSC complex.  KSC provides courses (Approved by Delaware Youth Soccer Association, a member of the US Soccer Federation) throughout the year for individuals interested in learning how to teach the game of soccer. Courses include age-appropriate youth courses, goalkeeping clinics, and other special topics.

USSF NATIONAL "C' COURSE


The National "C" License course is designed to introduce concepts that are targeted toward coaching players ages 15-18. The course focus is on getting coaches to think about, discuss, and recognize the recurring concepts or themes that exist in soccer. Candidates will be challenged to find ways to offer constructive guidance to players while also allowing players to experience the game for themselves.

KSC Complex has been the host for the USSF National "C" Course, since in 2012. The course is run by Director of Coaches (also USSF coaches) from DYSA, MSYSA, and EPYSA.
