The LIJSL offers a wide variety of courses for coaches at all different skill levels. Working in conjunction with United Soccer Coaches, 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.
