Thank you for planning to improve your coaching knowledge by signing up to take the AYSO Advanced Coaching Course

To obtain Advanced Course Certification you must:
1) Be Intermediate Coach and U12 Coach Certified
2) Be Safe Haven Certified
3) Be a registered volunteer
4) Take that AYSO/CDC Concussion Safety Training
5) Take the ON Line AYSO Advanced Coaching Pre-Course and Prepare and send to me a match analysis of the first half.
6) Prepare two training plans. One which I need before the class begins and which is based on the first half of the match you will observe on line during the pre-course and which we will discuss on Saturday, and a second one on a topic I will give you Saturday evening. 

For your Training Plan for Saturday:
(This Lesson Plan needs to be submitted to me before you come to class. We will cover these training plans Saturday evening.)

Design a lesson plan (include all four stages and diagram it as the PDF from your AYSO Intermediate Course recommends (see the on line Intermediate Course if you did not take it or contact me). The Plan should help correct the tactical failures from the match analysis (and technical deficits needed to obtain the tactical objective). 

What to Bring: Notebook and pen you can bring to the field – you will need to take notes
Snacks and your favorite Sports Drink 
Loads of enthusiasm, drive and positive energy!
How to Prepare:
1. Read and study the U12 and Intermediate Coaching Manuals (you are supposed to be U12 and Intermediate Coach certified AND Safe Haven Certified).  You will need to understand the ideas in these manuals. 
2. Read and study the FIFA (AYSO) Laws of the Game
Becoming an Advanced AYSO Coach means you need to understand a lot of soccer material to really achieve the goal of Player Development.  

Digital libraries are excellent for searching for specific answers and ideas. You need to know the laws of the game well enough to teach &explain then to your players and parents.
Rain may be an issue, but we will deal with that as best we can. Come prepared!
