Improving Soccer. One Coach at a Time.

The NSCAA offers a comprehensive yet focused curriculum inclusive of all coaches at all levels of the game.

Our staff coaches approach all participants in NSCAA Coaching Education programs as colleagues with whom we share the coaching journey. Collegiality and mutual, lifelong learning underpin all we do in our coaching education. Our mission is to help our fellow coaches grow and develop in a positive and professional manner in each and every course we teach.

NSCAA Coaching Academy offerings are geared toward enhancing the development of the broadest cross-section possible of our membership. You may enroll in a course geared to the level of player you coach. We celebrate the immense knowledge current and former players bring to the craft of coaching, we embrace coaches new to the game and we honor the wisdom of veteran coaches.


The course "reading the game" was excellent. Laura Kerrigan presented relevant information to soccer coaches at many levels. Including the college game as part of the course was brilliant. Coach Randy Waldrum's and Anson Dorrance's post match comments ended an educational evening. I would recommend NSCAA courses to all looking to enhance their coaching resume.
