EPYSL's Coaching Philosophy & The 'Club Way'

Ebbetts Pass Youth Soccer League adheres to the club development model and coaching philosophy shared by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) as well as the US Soccer Federation (USSF) and the Cal North Soccer Associaation (CYSA).   The ‘club way’ emphasizes player development over win-loss results and seeks to encourage a love for the game, an emphasis on soccer specific technical skills developed through correct repetition, basic elements of small group tactics and team tactical development.

What does it take to be a successful coach for EPYSL ?

• Always put players first – no ego’s!

• Be Respectful, humble and maintin good character

• Understand your role in relation to the ‘big picture’

• Soccer is your passion                                                                  

• Have mentors and be a life-long learner of the game

• Be Brave – make tough decisions

For EPYSL, coaching is about more than just soccer. . .EPYSL coaches are expecpted to also educate our young atheletes holistically.  EPYSL's guiding coaching principles include developing the person and then the player; employ a player-centered decision making process;  emphasize individual development before team development; focus on long term development as the journey requires patience, detailed understanding and a sophisticated plan;  articulate how the game should be played;  train the way the club wants to play;  have conviction yet be brave and flexible;  accept short-term loss for long-term development.  For EPYSL coaches, understanding the relationship between style of play, training priorities, curriculum development and player development is essential.

If you aspire to coach youth soccer for EPYSL, please contact Director of Coaching Joel Barnett at joel@bearvalleyrealestate.com or League President Jeff Gouveia at jeff@bearvalleyrealestate.com.


Coaching Resources

The US Youth Soccer Coaching Department has introduced its latest coaching resources with three age-specific practice activity guides. The three guides — for the U6-U8, U-10 and U-12 age groups — give coaches an idea of what should be covered throughout a season while highlighting activities that focus on development in a low-stress, fun-filled environment.  The practice activity guides can be very beneficial to those new to coaching youth soccer and act as a useful resource for experienced youth coaches. You can download all three practice activity guides below, as well as other useful resources from the US Youth Soccer Coaching Department.
