Coaching Education, Licensure Player Development and Safety

The SPSA Coaching Philosophy

The SPSA strives to provide the highest quality of coaching to its membership.   All of our coaches in the SPSA are required to have a minimum of a National F License. We expect that all of our coaches will be prepared for practice and will utilize age appropriate and small sided soccer activities to teach the game of soccer. 

The licensure and continued education of coaches is the cornerstone of any successful soccer program.  This is why the SPSA will reimburse a coach for any coaching licenses they successfully pass if pre-approved by the SPSA Board of Directors.

Coaching licenses are provided by two main entities in the United States. The United States Soccer Federation and the National Soccer Coaching Association of America.  Please visit their respective websites!

A list of coaching courses being offered locally can always  be found at PA West
