National Youth License Held in McAllen

The National Youth License is designed to provide club directors of coaching, youth coaches, physical education teachers and soccer administrators with the knowledge to successfully structure soccer environments for children aged 4-12.

The role of the coach as a facilitator is explored; the physical, mental and emotional needs and capabilities of players from 4-12 are explored; the lessons from developmental psychology are explored; and the art of teaching is explored. Candidates are videotaped for analysis during live training sessions.

Special thanks go out to all the U6, U8 and U10 players who lent a hand by coming out and helping us coach coaches to coach! Thank you also to the parents who taxied all these players! This course would not have been possible without the coordination efforts of Paula Hamilton and Albert Flores, the use of L&F Distributor’s facilities and First United Methodists Church’s fields. Thank you! A special thanks also to Catherine and Johnny Bain.

Sam Snow stayed in the Valley between to two weekends of the NYL course, holding training sessions for coaches and parents in Brownsville, Harlingen and McAllen.


Interested coaches will have another chance to participate in the National Youth License this may, when the course comes to Houston, May 29-June 2. For more information click here!
