The 4v4 Course is a three hour course designed for those who will be coaching youth soccer players from 4 to 10 years of age. We encourage those parents and coaches who are involved with soccer for the first time to take this course, in order to learn the proper methodology in teaching youth players who may be exposed to soccer for the first time. This course meets the mandatory coaching license requirements for U9 and U10 travel coaches.
GK Level 1 Diploma
The overall objective of the Goalkeeping Level 1 Diploma is to explore some of the myths and mystiques surrounding the goalkeeping function. The course is directed towards the team coach - not the specialist goalkeeper coach. The object is to empower the coach with knowledge and practice methods that will enable the coach to evaluate a goalkeeper in game situations and then design an appropriate practice program for goalkeepers in and outside of team practices. The course includes lecture (theory) and field (practical) sessions.
After completing this two-hour course, all participants will be fully certified in Adult and Child CPR and the use of AED devices. Those who complete the course successfully will receive their certification card. You must pre-register.
For high school juniors, sophomores, and freshmen, the annual LIJSL College Forum will feature an expert panel of current and former college coaches and players offering advice on NCAA requirements, financial aid, picking the college that is right for you, starting and managing the recruiting process, and more.
