The PYSA coaching clinics are designed to provide our members with age appropriate information to use when coaching
players between the ages of 4 and 12. Each participant will receive handouts that contain valuable coaching tips as well as sample practice sessions to use with their teams. During
the session the coaches will participate in a number of age appropriate games that they can then use on the field when they are working with their respective teams.

Intro to Goalkeeping
As teams move from U8 to U9 they begin using goalkeepers. With the addition of goalkeepers we are also adding an
entirely new and unique skill set. This clinic will cover the basic techniques that will help coaches tach players how to play the position safely and without fear. Along with basic
techniques, coaches will be given some fun activities that will make players more comfortable playing in goal.
Tactics for Small Sided
This clinic is a discussion about how to effectively move add players to the field as teams
get older. We will discuss the basic principles of soccer and how we can use these principles to place players on the field in ways that will assist in their development. This
clinic is not a field based clinic. All coaches who attend will receive a copy of the US Soccer Best Practices document.
