NSCAA Hangout Center: Implementing U.S. Soccer’s Small-Sided Games Initiative
Monday, Nov. 23 - 1 p.m. ET/Noon CT
Small-sided games will be mandated come Fall 2017, with specific changes occurring in regard to alterations to the format, field size, goals and rules. In addition, changes to calendar year age groupings with occur. Arguably the most significant decision in a decade, the youth soccer landscape is changing rapidly for coaches and administrators.
To help clubs and coaches successfully implement these mandates into their coach and player development systems, the NSCAA has created the “NSCAA Small Sided Games Diploma – 4v4, 7v7 and 9v9” eLearning series. Ian Barker and Dave Newbery will discuss the coming changes, as well as the launch of this new diploma offering.
