Chris P., Rush Soccer’s Developmental Director, interviewed our guests to discuss ways and concepts to coach U9-U10 players.
Sam Snow and Vince Ganzberg are two big names within youth soccer and their fame is well deserved. Sam has served as the director of coaching for US Youth Soccer and now runs US Soccer Consultants, which offers Coach Education and Mentorship Programs, among others. Vince currently serves as the Coach Education Content Coordinator for the USC, and is a long time member of the USC Academy Staff, as well as a U.S. Soccer’s National Staff and CONCACAF instructor.
We got together with them to discuss characteristics, ways, and concepts to coach what we call the Bantam Division, comprised by the age group U9 and U10.
This webinar guides the coach onto the topic as an evolution of coaching the previous age groups, recognizing similarities and differences. These notable guest speakers give along the session practical examples of activities that exemplify the concepts illustrated.
