Coaching courses: G on Nov 7 and F on Nov 13 & 20

Hello Holliston Soccer Coaches,

In an effort to promote continuing coaching education, Holliston Youth Soccer Association is pleased to announce the in-town availability of two coaching certification courses: the intial G Course and the following F Course. The G must be completed prior to the F.

These courses are typically offered in towns several miles away and we are now bringing them to Holliston for your convenience. They are administered by Mass Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) and are sponsored by U.S. Soccer by professional instructors.

The courses are interactive and educational opportunities designed to help you learn more about teaching our youth while enjoying the exciting game of soccer.  The format will consist of limited classroom time as well as "hands-on" activities.  You do not need any prior playing/coaching experience to partake; however, it is requested that you dress appropriately to participate in the gym activities.

The G Course will be offered on Wednesday, November 7 from 6-10 pm at HHS gym. This course can also be taken online, but you will get significantly more out of it from attending in person.  It is a fantastic baseline for anyone just beginning their coaching experience as well as experienced coaches seeking to understand how to make an impact on youth players.

Again, G is a pre-requisite prior to registering for F Course so you would need to take it ASAP.

For those who have or will have completed the G Course, the F Course will be offered the following weeks: Part I on Tuesday, November 13 from 6-10 pm and Part II on Tuesday, November 20 from 6-10 pm.  Both will be at HHS gym.  We are breaking F into two four-hour segments to make it more convenient.  If you can only attend one of the dates, that is acceptable, but you will need to make up the rest of the course at another time/location outside of Holliston.  (*Note that should availability be limited, we will honor requests for complete F registrations over partial F-I.  Please check with Paul Goughan.)

Please reserve your spot in the course by registering at the Mass Youth Soccer Website AND by emailing Paul Goughan, HYSA Director of Coaching Education at

As you can imagine, significant planning, coordination and expense goes into offering these courses locally.  Please do your best to take advantage of them as well as keeping your commitment to attend once you have registered.  If we lack enough HYSA coaches, we will open up registration to surrounding towns in order to keep the course on the schedule. Your timely reservation is much appreciated.
