National Diploma

Course Details

The National Diploma is a 45-hour course designed to meet the needs of the more experienced coach, particularly those coaching at the high school level and above, or youth coaches with previous certification and a number of years working with the developing player.  It is strongly recommended that candidates complete the NSCAA Level 6 Diploma or US Soccer "E" license prior to the course. The overall objective of the National Diploma is to acquaint the coach with the needs of the soccer player and provide an organized and progressive methodology of coaching those needs. Basic technical and tactical knowledge is the central theme of the course in a 6 vs. 6 model. The course includes sessions on the teaching process, psychological skills training and Laws of the Game. Participants receive a curriculum that outlines the course content and includes valuable resource material. Testing includes oral, written and practical (coaching) evaluations. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age. NSCAA recommends that candidates for the National Diploma spend three hours taking the on-line safety course. For a cost of just $36, you will have access to outstanding information to help you prepare for the immediate treatment of your player’s injuries. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. For more information or to register, click on the NCSS logo on the right side of this page.
