Coaching Clinics are offered before the start of the FALL and
SPRING seasons. Registration for these clinics is coordinated
through STYSA and can only be accessed online. The same GotSoccer
UserID and password combination is used to register for these
clinics AND to register as a KYSC coach for the KidSafe background
check. New coaches logging in for the first time will be asked
to create their own account.

USSF coaching courses and clinics are free of charge to KYSC
coaches. The cost of the training will initially be charged
to your credit card at the time of registration. KYSC coaches,
however, will be fully reimbursed upon successful completion
of the course. You must also notify Gene Zaeff
that you are registered for the course.
clinics are especially helpful to coaches wishing to become
more familiar with the game of soccer and are seeking assistance
in preparing practice plans. Also, coaches who are experienced
players themselves will find the clinics very educational in
learning how to make the transition from “playing”
the game of soccer to “teaching” the game of soccer.
Completion of a Youth Module is required within one year of
your KYSC coaching start date.
The clinics are divided into two sessions consisting of classroom
instruction (at Faith West Academy) and field work (at Katy
Park). Successful completion of the course requires that BOTH
the classroom instruction and the field session are completed.
Costs will only be reimbursed
by KYSC if both sessions are completed.
covered in the clinic include the following:
Age-appropriate coaching philosophy
Rules of the Game
are encouraged to bring a soccer ball and water bottle to the
field session. It is suggested that you bring a snack
to eat between the classroom and field sessions. Come dressed
to participate in the sample drills; shin guards are recommended.
