NSCAA welcomes the Idaho Youth Soccer Association as a new education partner
In a continuous effort to strengthen youth soccer and better equip youth coaches, the National Soccer Coaches Association of America has teamed up with the Idaho Youth Soccer Association (IYSA) as an official education partner.
“This is an exciting opportunity for both of our organizations, as both the NSCAA and the IYSA are dedicated to bettering youth soccer, starting with better coaching,” IYSA president Bill Taylor said. “This is a great opportunity to add to our current curriculum with NSCAA diplomas and additional quality instruction.”
Based in Boise, Idaho, the IYSA is a member state of US Youth Soccer, consists of 39 clubs organized into four districts (North, Southeast, Southwest and Southern Central) with the purpose of educating club and parent coaches.
As an Official Education Partner, the IYSA adds NSCAA Junior Level V, Junior Level VI, and Junior Level VI Supplement courses to the state as a benefit for its youth coaches. Additionally, both the NSCAA and the IYSA will work to hold NSCAA National or Advanced National courses in the state annually.
The IYSA will host the locations, and provide course promotions and instructors trained in leading NSCAA courses offered in the state.
NSCAA Director of Coaching Education, Ian Barker, added: “The NSCAA is delighted to work with the Idaho Youth Soccer Association. We look forward to working with Idaho’s youth coaches and providing them ways to make the youth soccer experience better for all involved.”
