Soccer coaches are an integral part of our programs. They play an influential role in the development of our young players on and off the field. Coaching a team is a rewarding and demanding job. To be a good coach, you must not only understand the rules of the game, but also how to successfully develop and manage individuals with varying attributes and skill levels into a cohesive unit.
Our GSC coaches develop and build upon their coaching skills through coaching certifications and licenses. Coaching soccer at every level requires a license and a completion of risk management. The US Soccer Federation offers coaching education classes and licenses for soccer coaches in the United States. Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association provides risk management certifications.
