Coaching Education

BESA highly encourages coaches to educate themselves on the best practice for coaching young children to play the game of Soccer. US Soccer offers various classes and certifications for coaches education starting with the "National F Certification." This certification serves as the base point for continuing your education. The class is an online course which takes about 2 hours to complete. The course allows you to stop and pick up from where you finished.

Once you have completed this course watch this webpage for future "on-field" courses to show you some drills and techniques to help you teach your players the basics of soccer. To register for the F clinic follow the link, create your US Soccer Coaches ID and you will be able to take the course. 

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE NATIONAL F COURSE

There is a $25 fee to register for this course, BESA will refund your registration fee upon verification of completion of the course.


Some reminders of the Parents and Coaches Code of Ethics and behavior at soccer games


--Do not openly question an official's judgment and honesty. Officials are symbols of fair play, integrity, and sportsmanship.
The referees are trying diligently to make the correct decision. 
  
--Remember that your child learns by example. Children mimic what their parents say. 
Criticism of the coach, officials, teammates, and/or opponents fosters bad attitudes and can only lead to a negative experience for your child.
  
--A parent must never be verbally or physically violent or threatening with any coach, parent, player, or representative of their Member Association or NTSSA.
  
--The opponents are necessary friends; without them your child could not participate.

--Always be positive with your comments
