Coach InformationUpdated Tuesday January 7, 2020 by Brandy Balsman.
Thank you for supporting the Perryville Optimist Soccer League program by volunteering your time to the youth in our community. Below we provide some information and materials for you to use throughout the season. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with!
The document below titled US Youth Soccer Development program provides a good basis of the fundamentals of what should be taught at each age level.
A great resource to start with is www.coachingsoccer101.com. This website provides some great tutorials and information.
http://www.nscaa.com/education/resources/fundamentals provides some very helpful basic information as well!
