Soccer for Life (U15 & up)

At this stage, skill training demands and training loads are increased to develop and refine skills and tactics. Tactical awareness becomes an increasingly important facet of training, alongside mental toughness, concentration, and diligence. Elite soccer groups may express interest in recruiting talented young players, but coaches and parents should be careful to recognize and protect the long-term interests of each athlete. Game formats develop from 8v8 to 11v11 (although no 11v11 prior to 13 years of age) as players grow through this stage, and the season moves toward year-round play that includes appropriate rest and recovery periods.
 
Duration: max. 15 hours
Fees: up to $225*
 
*The above fees relate only to the courses that the SSA delivers; all courses organized by local Member Organizations may be priced differently.
*Courses require a minimum participant number of 8 Coaches for Active Start and 12 Coaches for Fundamentals, Learning to Train and Socccer for Life.
*Coaches need to be 16 years of age to register for any course.
