Coaching Education

Level 1 Coaching Course a Success – Fall Sessions Planned

NorCal Premier Soccer strives to offer the best-quality coaching education possible.

Better coaches develop better players, so it’s paramount to provide instruction that will help improve the level of the game in NorCal.

Northern California is a large geographical area which makes it difficult for some coaches to attend various education opportunities.

To help bring education to all Regions, NorCal Premier Soccer has developed the NorCal Level 1 Coaching Course.

The course is based on 7v7 and 9v9 game from the U9 through U12 age groups.  The main objective of the course is to address the importance of the fundamentals of the 4 main pillar areas of player development, technical, tactical, physical and personality.

“The purpose of the course is to help coaches understand what the main characteristics are that the players need to develop in the golden age of learning, from ages seven through 12,” Ziemer said. “We’re trying to give the kids a solid foundation.”
