About the Course
US Club Soccer and LaLiga have developed a series of coaching education courses focused on “training the trainer.” These courses focus on coaching methodology and teaching pedagogy to improve the effectiveness and instructional ability of coaches, and the ability of Directors of Coaching or Technical Directors to develop a staff of coaches. The courses include both classroom and field components. The course is open to any coach, though Directors of Coaching or Technical Directors are particularly encouraged to attend.
The Players First: Training the Trainers! LaLiga Coaching Methods courses will include multiple levels to allow for future growth. The Level 1 course will require approximately 30 hours of education, and will also include instruction in the methodology management software Kimet Sport – a unique and important tool in the process. There are no assessments or examinations in the course.
While the specific schedule of each event will be determined based upon the host organization and other local considerations, the course is generally structured to take place over 3 – 3½ days. A sample generic schedule is as follows:
