The NSCAA will be heading back to the Chicago area this summer with the National Diploma and Advanced National Diploma as week long residential courses.

These courses, to be held at Elmhurst College, are a part of the NSCAA's schedule of summer residentials that allow coaches to immerse themselves in their coaching education. This summer marks the 10th year Elmhurst has hosted summer residential courses for the NSCAA.

Coaches planning to take either the National Diploma or Advanced National Diploma at Elmhurst are encouraged to register before June 11, 2016 to avoid the $200 price increase.

The National Diploma is a 45-hour course designed to meet the needs of the more experienced coach, particularly those coaching at the high school level and higher, or youth coaches with previous certification and a number of years working with the developing player. The overall objective is to acquaint the coach with the needs of the soccer player and provide an organized and progressive methodology of coaching those needs. Basic technical and tactical knowledge is the central theme of the course in a 7v7 model.
