The U10/12 Course is a fourteen hour course designed for Travel Level coaches working with players competing in the 6v6 (U9/10), 8v8 (U11/12), and 11v11 (U13/14) formats. Coaching players between the ages of nine and twelve is arguably the most critical period for long-term player development and the technical foundation for later tactical understanding is either successfully established, or irretrievably lost, during this stage. 

The U10/12 Course consists of on-field practical information (11 hours) and the self-paced, online Novice Coach Course (~3 hours), which, together, present ideas  on teaching the technical, tactical, psychological and physical elements of soccer games ranging from 1v1 to 8v8. Technical skills, including goalkeeper skills, are broken down in depth, as are small-group tactics (the Principles of Play) and game management relevant to 6v6 and 8v8 coaching. Soccer fitness is presented as a by-product of active play. 

Fundamentally, the U10/12 Course strives to demonstrate how soccer “skill” (the application of technique under pressure) can be developed by playing soccer in a variety of game forms; and by utilizing a variety of simple conditions and scoring systems to promote learning. There is no formal assessment of coaching skills or soccer knowledge in the U10/12 Course. 

Typically, the U10/12 Course is scheduled for one weeknight (Friday, 6pm-9pm) and one weekend day (Saturday or Sunday, 8am-5pm), but can be adapted to accommodate most local needs. Host organizations – and participating coaches -- are encouraged to provide U10/12 players for the course.

The minimum enrollment for a U10/12 course is twelve.
