    The NSCAA Level 5 Diploma has been scheduled in Spearfish, SD for June 17-18, 2016. I'd like to invite any and all coaches who are looking for an opportunity to interact with other coaches and learn from the largest coaching organization in the world to follow the link below and get more information!
     
    What is the Level 5 Diploma?
     
    The primary focus of the Level 5 Diploma is to assist coaches in their teaching of tactics as applied in small groups. The course discusses the principles of play and the roles of players. Coaches spend time desiging a lesson plan. Coaches also see tactics taught in small sided games and are exposed to a series of different teaching methodologies.
    Benefits of the Level 5? TIME; the Level 5 Diploma is 1.5 days instead of the 2.5 days for the National E License. CONTENT; the focus of this course is to educate. Coaches are able to focus on the learning process without worrying abotu the two evaluations made in the National E License. COST; the Level 5 Diploma is $60 per coaching candidate and teh National E License is $100 per coaching candidate.
    What is the NSCAA?
     
    The National Soccer Coaches Association of America is the largest coaching orgnization in the world and educates more coaches per year int eh USA than any other coaching education organization. South Dakota State Soccer Association is the official education partner for the NSCAA in South Dakota, and teaches the Diploma Courses along side the US Soccer Federation Licensing we've always offered. For more information about how SDSSA sees the Diploma system fitting into our coaching education pathawy please visit our "Coaches" link on the webpage.
