LIJSL To Host National & Advanced National Courses on LI in Conjunction with the NSCAA for 3rd Consecutive Year
The Long Island Junior Soccer league is proud to announce that for the third straight year they will be offering National and Advanced Diploma courses on Long Island this summer in conjunction with the NSCAA!
The courses will take place on July 12-14 and July 19-21, 2013 at Hicksville High School. There are still openings for both courses. For more information and to register go to www.nscaa.com.
“The NSCAA carefully chooses the locations where these national course are taught, so it’s a great honor for the league to be selected as a host site,” said Fitzgerald this week. “What's unique about the way the program is being run on Long Island is that these courses are routinely held as week-long "residential" courses where coaching candidates live at the site for the entire course. This summer we are offering the same courses in a "non-residential" format, where the candidates attend 2 Friday evenings and complete weekends. This is done to accommodate those who can't take time off from work or can’t commit for a whole week, yet still desire a higher level of coaching certification that they otherwise couldn't get.”
The LIJSL is a well-established league with a very large membership base. This, in addition to the respect the league has garnered around the country for its operations and numerous programs, like the coaching academy, played a big role in the awarding of these courses.
“As a progressive coaching education academy in one of the largest youth soccer leagues in the country, we have the potential to reach hundreds of coaches through our courses,” added Fitzgerald. “In turn, those coaches affect thousands of young soccer players along the way.”
The NSCAA is the largest soccer coaches' organization in the world. Best known for its Coaching Education and National Convention, the NSCAA has plenty to offer coaches of all levels and from all areas. The NSCAA Coaching Academy offers a wide range of educational opportunities to enhance the knowledge of soccer coaches.
As an added bonus, any non-member who takes one of these non-residential courses will receive a complimentary NSCAA membership upon completion of the course. This applies to NEW members only.
