College offers state soccer coach course

Peninsula College Soccer team members are hosting a second State E coaching course this summer.

The course is scheduled for 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Aug. 23-24 at the Peninsula College campus, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles.

At the completion of the 18-hour course, coaches receive a State E coaching license.

The emphasis of the State E course is on coaching players 10-14 years of age. It is a general certificate of 11-per-side play and is intended for those coaches who are in the transitional stage from coaching modified soccer to coaching 11 vs. 11 soccer.

The course is best suited for those coaches with several years’ experience or who have attended one or more of the youth module courses; coaches must complete this course before they can go onto the national or State D course.

The E course focuses on coaching points and the teaching of technique, with an introduction to the “Principles of Play” (attack and defense.) The E course also provides elementary information on the management and preparation of a team.

Andrew Chapman, head coach of Peninsula College’s men’s soccer team, hosts the course.

For more information, call Chapman at 417-6410.
