Change to Restraining Line Rule-
The ball will not be deemed in play until after a defending player receives or touches the ball once it is released from the goalkeepers hands or from a goal kick.
THIS IS A CHANGE TO AN EARLIER VERSION THAT SAID ONCE BALL IS RELEASED VIA HANDS OR GOAL KICK THAT THE BALL WAS IMMEDIATELY IN PLAY.
Thanks to the 30 coaches that took part in the recently completed course. We are setting up another class in the Spring. Details will be posted on this web site.
What soccer skills should I be teaching my team of 8 year olds? What about 10 year olds? 15 year olds? How much time should I spend on fitness versus soccer related drills? What’s the most effective way to run a practice? These are just a few of the important issues that face each and every coach, regardless of the age of the team.
PSC is not only committed to improving the soccer ability of its players, but is also committed to improving the coaching skills of its volunteer coaches. As part of this commitment to coaching, PSC will be hosting a Long Island Junior Soccer League “C” license course that is open to all PSC Travel & Developmental coaches. This is a 12 hour course that will be held over four dates as follows:
The cost of the course is $70 and PSC will reimburse the full amount to each coach who successfully completes the course. Note: You must attend each session in order to receive your coaching license.
PSC highly recommends that coaches take advantage of this course. For anyone who may be thinking about coaching a Travel team, be advised that PSC will require that all Travel coaching candidates to have a LIJSL "C" license or higher. Once you have completed the course, your “C” license never expires. And even if your plans are not to coach at the Travel level, this course will still make you a more effective coach at the Intramural level.
If you are interested in taking this licensing course or you have any questions, you can contact Kevin Hume KevinH6016@aol.com
Even though it is geared as a speech about youth hockey, the principals are still so good and apply to any youth sport. It is 9 minutes but worth the listen.
Give the game back to the kids !
Coaches from PSC completed the LISL C Course in March during 4 evenings and a 12 hour course. Pictured here with instructor John Fitzgerald. Click on image for some photos from the course.
