Long Island Junior Soccer League

Coaching Education

The LIJSL offers a wide variety of courses for coaches at all different skill levels. Working in conjunction with United Soccer Coaches, coaching education courses range from the 4-v-4 course for beginners to the Advanced National Diploma for more experienced coaches.

Each course is led by league-appointed certified instructors, who hold the highest level of certification from United Soccer Coaches. 

The goal of the courses is two-fold; for coaches to get their mandatory certifications and to gain best practices on guiding young athletes.  

The program is led by LIJSL Director of Coaching Education John Fitzgerald. He can be reached at coachingacademydirector@hotmail.com.
