This workshop takes parents on an journey through some important details that the parents in your organization should know. This online learning experience provides parents with an understanding of how to best support their child, the coach, and the club.
Next – a review of some of the key “laws” of our game so that parents on your touch line are educated in the major components of soccer such as “advantage”, hand ball, and the offside rule. The objective of this workshop is to create a very supportive parent core that will work to focus on their role and allow coaches to focus on theirs.
Before we conclude we discuss the US Soccer / US Youth Soccer updates about heading the ball, birth-year age groupings and the focus on small-sided games. Let us do some of the heavy lifting with regards to explaining these and justifying the changes.
Workshop content is based on industry research, studies and psychology. Workshop includes a final quiz and a Certificate of Completion that you can share with your club members.
