The 4-v-4 course is a four-hour lesson designed for those who will be coaching youth soccer players from 4 to 10 years of age. We encourage those parents and coaches who are involved with soccer for the first time to take this course, in order to learn the proper methodology in teaching youth players who may be exposed to soccer for the first time. This course meets the mandatory coaching license requirements for U9 and U10 travel coaches.
