GEORGIA SOCCER COACHING SCHOOL PROGRAM
Under the auspices of the United States Soccer Federation, the Georgia Soccer conducts the State Coaching School Program in order to educate and certify soccer coaches in accordance with the national coaching scheme.
Regardless of previous coaching or playing experience, the Georgia Soccer Coaching School Program is designed to help each coach develop a sound theoretical and practical knowledge of coaching soccer. By offering licensing courses at five different levels, the school is able to expose the beginning as well as the more experienced coach to the internationally recognized modern methods of coaching.
Most Courses are held in pre-spring (January & February) and pre-fall (July & August) period of each year. Course schedules are posted in mid December and Mid June respectively. To register for our currently available classes, please click here. For more information, please contact Tara Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
